This weeks beautiful LO was created by Cheryl Merrihew. What a great design!! The fussy cutting of the stamped paper is just incredibly rearranged perfectly. Cheryl loved the sheet of paper with the frame and butterflies on it, but it had her stumped. She felt she couldn’t get anything to work on it for her until she decided the frame was just in the wrong direction! So she fussy cut the frame out and tued it. The circle and layers cover up the hole it left.
This is what she said…
I used my Zutter to distress the papers and inked most everything. The big flower is from Lisa’s retro flower tutorial and I guess I did a twist on the small flowers. They were a mini rose tutorial I saved some time but instead of the bud in the center, I used the green rose buds off the Prima pearl swirls in the kit. I made my own faux bling tutorial that was Lynn’s and a little twist here also. I added rhinestones to the bling instead of all paint. I changed the color of the letters for the title by spraying them with GM (coffee shop) and I fussy cut the big butterfly on the paper and added a rhinestone body. Everything on here is from the Shabby Ambition kit except for the paint and rhinestones. The pic is of me and my newest dgd, Joia.
Very well executed!!! Love the twists and direction this LO took…Precious picture. Very beautifully done.

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."September 5, 2010 at 11:13 pm #58335September 6, 2010 at 1:10 am #58336September 6, 2010 at 3:22 am #58338
