Showcasing "Bouquet de Fleur" by DCWV!

My layouts this month
are made with the luscious new stacks from
DCWV
"Bouquet de Fleur",
and, hopefully, demonstrates how very versatile this stack is!
 
My first page is a very sweet and "girly" layout!
 
 
I fussy-cut the pink swirls from the pattern paper.
I wanted to take the elements of the adorable photos and bring them into my colors and embellishments. Hence, the tulle ruffled ribbon, quilt-like squares of pattern papers, and the large purple resin flower. The baby's momma is always saying how quickly the time goes by with her little ones, so I added the sweet, little clockface charm from the
Blue Moon Beads', "Trinket Shoppe" collection.

 
 
 
You can find the papers and the charms at your local Michael's.
 
The rhinestone swirls are from my Zva stash,
and the white satin flowers I've had for years.
 
 
My second layout is a more masculine one 
of her older child.
 
 
It is so hard for me to look at these photos and not be a little sad...
I babysat this adorable little boy from the time he was 3 months old until he was 16 months old. I shared with him learning to crawl, talk, walk, and felt as close to him as my own grandson.
He is getting so grown-up now.  He still calls me "Nanna Jan", and we get together as often as time allows.  How I envy my friend (their Momma) being able to stay home with these two precious children. They really are angels!
 
This stack has so many options, as you can see by these pages.
The plaid lent itself perfectly with the pattern on the tie,
and the green fussy-cut leaves fit well with the outdoor scene,
along with the jute twine and silk leaves.
Again, to add to the "time passing quickly" theme, I hung a small clock face from the same Blue Moon collection on the layout.


 
I am slowly getting back into scrapbooking the photos that I hold dear to me, and will surely start doing more if I continue to receive gorgeous photos like these on a regular basis!  Cards are fun, but the memories that these will preserve are priceless!
 
 
Thanks for letting me share with you today!
Now, time to start making your own memories!
And DCWV papers are the best place to begin!
