Special Monthly Designer for 13 Arts

For my Giveaway press here
I'm so thrilled to announce that from now on I will be Special Guest Designer at 13 Arts.
First I was given the opportunity to be a guest designer and play with "Frosted Life". Now I will be joining Aida and design monthly projects for her blog

This is my first design using these beautiful papers. 



I used this picture taken at the beach after my daughter sat and cuddled on my lap. This is a rare occasion as she has lots of energy and never sits down for a moment. I cherished the 10 minutes she lay on me. It was a very tender moment.



I used lots of beautiful flowers from both Manorhouse Creations and Recollections. The circular frame around the picture has 3 layers. The bottom layer is a doily, the middle layer is a frame from cricut and the top layer is a clock frame from 2 Crafty


To make the effect at the bottom, I wet the paper and then rolled it over.Then I put a zipper in the middle ans some flowers.
