MY FAVORITE PHOTO OF 2017...of course it's....

my grandsons, Brian & Talan!  It was taken at a July 4th celebration.  They look so cute and it is just the sweetest photo to me!  I created this page for (click & go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  Please check out the monthly challenge as you have a chance to win $50 in their terrific products! I know it's a busy month, but if you have some time, we'd love to have you join in!

MY LAYOUT:
Creative Embellishments products used:  Together Frame :  I left it natural to enhance the photo.  Flourish : I gave it a stained green look using a dark green ink.  Scribble Heart Stencil :  I used 3 different ink colors and then smudged each area.

* I also used a sketch by our own prolific DT member, BEV CODE*

SHE GOT A BALL!

YEP!  My little niece, Marrah, was singled out to get the Phillies ball!  She is 4 1/2 and already an avid Phillies fan, like her parents!  Well, you can see her excitement!  I created this page for (Click & go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  You still have 2 weeks to join the monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in their terrific products!  Hope to see you there!

MY LAYOUT:
I used the following Creative Embellishments Products, leaving them all natural.

I also used the Distressed text stamp subtly in the background.
