The Shortest Way To Heaven Is Through A Garden Gate

Hi everyone and happy Friday!  Here is my latest DT project for Frosted Designs. Their challenge this week is to use your own handwriting on your project.  I will admit that I never use my own handwriting on my layouts.  I don't like they way it looks. I was actually quite intimidated about this project.  I thought and thought about what I should do and came up with this garden layout.
I am so pleased with how it turned out!  All of the paper I used with the exception of the fence came from Websters Pages, Nature's Storybook.  I bought the paper a few months ago because I thought it was so pretty and planned on using it for one of my garden layouts.  All of the embellishments with the exception of the scalloped oval and pin, which are by Making Memories, I hand cut from the Webster Pages paper.  I hand cut the fence.  I used a lot of pop up dots and put my Tsukineko Chalk Ink to good use!  I also used my Cricut Storybook cartridge to cut out the frame for the photo. I also did a little stitching with my sewing machine.

WOW!!! This is amazing, I think I will follow Sandy and come to your place! This is beautiful and the paper is WONDERFUL, you must have spent a lot of time handcutting many of the objects in this layout! My eyes just keep looking again and again. Love the fence and the little bunny at the gate. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.
