Beautiful Memories

Hi guys I'm here today hopefully as my internet keeps crashing!!!!! waiting for yet another modem so hope this solves it grrr!!!!
I have been saying for a few weeks I fancied attempting to do a scrap book page, well here is my first attempt ever!!!!!!! EEEKKKK

I have used a gorgeous photo Kay took of Tegan a few hours after she was born, I printed it onto matt photo paper but think I need so better quality stuff lol,
The gorgeous papers are of course Maja design  Sofiero collection and the clocks are from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection number XVI, sooooo love these papers I can't get enough of them he he,
the edges are distressed as usual and I tore the top left and curled the paper edges back, added some flowers and one of the fabby Prima Junkyard findings from Live and love crafts,
I added a little stitch effect stamping using a Lily of the Valley stamp too,
The clock design is made using some home made 3D texture paste and a crafters workshop stencil Mini travel time,
The beautiful Cheery Lynn flourishes I cut in two sizes and added a  butterfly made from Delight air dry clay from Crafts and Me,  which I made using a Martha Stewart mould,
The background is made by  adding a little Versa Magic chalk ink in Pink Petunia here and there, then layering some corrugated card board, strips of the papers, Tim Holtz film strip, Prima flowers, a charm and cheesecloth from my stash, pearl string from The Ribbon girl, Lace from Live and Love crafts and to soften off the strong colours on the flowers a little Picket Fence crackle paint,
At the bottom of the main focal point and lower left is another crafters workshop stencil called Art is,
I have made this for Kay, hope she will like it!!!

What a fabulous first scrapbook page!! I love all the elements combined on your shabby page, and the beautiful flourish in white peeking from behind sweet little Tegan. Kay will certainly treasure this for Mother's Day! Thanks for joining this week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge!

Awesome page Liz!! You've entered the world of 12x12 scrapbooking with a bang! Love the texture work and the colors you've chosen to work with are just perfect for a baby page! Gorgeous!! (funny, you'll see that I used similar stencils on a baby page I made for a friend that will be posted tomorrow!)...great minds think alike right :) xo
