*** Now, it's time to share what I've created using Amy's sketch! ***

"Praising God So Stones Don't Have To" 
Based on Amarylis's sketch using the MK, FAO and EAO
This is a 12x12 canvas that I did based on Amy's great sketch! I'm telling you ... this was the most fun I've had in a while!  I've been wanting to do a canvas with this title/message on it and when I saw these papers, I thought it was a perfect opportunity! I was deeply inspired  by those inner feelings and had a blast "getting inky!" I've used about a half dozen different mists and sprays after applying my Gesso base. I've let the paints run, merge and drip as they wished. Then I've used a TCW Tile Textures stencil and molding paste. Along with some fussy cut pieces, a bit of the transparency and embellishments from  the kit,  I now have a favorite piece to hang in my scrap room. The mists, canvas and Gelatos (purple edges) are from my stash. 

Next ...
I am so in love with this kit! The Prima Divine collection has such beautiful papers and the matching embellishments just make for such great pages! My photography is a bit crooked here although my  page is actually very straight! =) I've made a a messy punched border and added a pleated paper inset that I'll be doing a tutorial on May 8th.  Just a fun little something that I haven't done in a while! That is our super cute, ggdg Peyton in the photo. (The paper doilies are from my stash.)

And last .. 
"Kisses, Kisses, Kisses"
Main Kit only layout (plus bits of personal stash)
(Sketch by Nanne' Harry @ Stuck on U Sketches
This was a special page for me as well! I'm in love with this photo of my youngest daughter with her hubby. Although technically  it is not a photographer's dream, I love the happy expression on her face and her long hair cascading down. But also, Im head over heels about the printed background paper! So, I wanted to use as large a piece as I could.  It's not a print I'd use  in my home necessarily but it makes a fabulously unique scrapbook page! I've made some of my own blooms for this page using my Grand Peonies die and some flowers from the kit. Don't you love those great Petaloo CMC butterflies! Just spray them any color that you want! (The twine and doily are from my stash.)
