Once Upon A Time

I really enjoyed working on this layout and am so pleased with the finished product!  I used some more of the beautiful Graphic 45 papers Once Upon A Springtime from Artful Delight's February kit.

The picture is of my mom and her little brother!  I think this collection is perfect for vintage photos!  The only problem I am having is that my printer is leaving a line across the pictures.  Not sure why it is doing that.  Everything on my layout is from the February kit with the exception of the date stickers by Cosmo Cricket.
Here are a few close ups:

I inked the white fabric American Crafts alphabet letters.

I added some hand stitching around the picture frame.

A gorgeous Prima flower and wooden flourish by Kaisercraft.

I punched the butterflies using a Martha Stewart punch, tinted the pearls with some blue ink as well as the butterflies.
Don't forget to check back tomorrow, as I will have my reveal for Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays challenge.
Here is a little sneak peek:

Just stunning Deb, wow, those papers are gorgeous and I love how you can take the older photos and do them so proud, that kit looks amazing. I love those stunning fabric letters and with the inking it leaves that line indent in them, gorgeous. Hope your printer works itself out. lol and we are on the other side of Australia for those fires, but mum told me someone welding possibly started them.....so sad. Melxx
