I have been stamping and scrapbooking for the past 10 years. It is my favorite hobby and I sure do miss it when life gets way too busy. I have 3 amazing children, and a wonderful, supportive husband.

All Things Black & White

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Monday!!!! I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL weekend!!! Today I would like to share something completely different for me. I have always wanted to make a creation using all black and white (with a hint of grey lol)  including my image. This was challenging for me but oh SO MUCH FUN!!! I loved how this card came out, I hope you enjoy!!!

Don't you just love when you visualize something and it actually comes out how you wanted it too?, it doesn't happen oh that much for me, but I really was extremely happy with the results of this card. Maybe just because its different :) Isn't this image just FANTASTIC??? I used the darling new image by SCACD Little Lily in the Little Sassy Crew Collection! Isn't she just soo much fun!! I also used the GORGEOUS Designer Paper by Kaiser Kraft Black and White Timeless ( Right now this paper pad is 20% off at SCACD). Those beautiful white flowers in the center of my grey and black flowers are sparkling prima flowers!! Can't really see the sparkle on this picture, but they are really beautiful!
