Some Kind of Wonderful ~ Design Project for Generations Crafting

Well, first of all, I just adore this photo of my dgd MacKenzie with her 2 best friends, counting the dog LOL!

The BoBunny Olivia collection just blew me away from the get-go! When I saw the sneak last summer, I knew I had to have it for the Fall. I could use it over and over again! Love the large die cut paper and all the patterned paper. Here I have teamed the die cut with some yummy Prima flowers from Generations Crafting's store and some Dusty Attic (the gate) from my stash. The Wonderful title was cut with my Cricut but the remainder of the title is computer generated.

Some simple punch work, inking and distressing was all I needed to compliment this great photo. I love how it turned out. Here are a couple of close-ups of the florals.

    It was very cold down here this morning and the power company kept cutting the electricity off for 30 minutes at a time so they wouldn't have a black out... It sure was cold during those 30 minutes... It's been on now since noon, so maybe it's going to stay on for the rest of the day.. Be careful up there and stay warm!!!! Hugs!!!
