Scrapology 'T- is for Texture'

 Hello folks!  It was my sister's 49th birthday in September and another opportunity for the family to get together.  We happened to be wearing a right riot of colours and I thought it would be great fun to Scrap these shots.  Now, this month, over on Scrapology we're scraplifting a fun double layout by Stacey Hansen and the additional challenge is 'Texture'.  As the sketch includes 7 photos I thought it would be perfect for these.  There is a fabulous prize up for grabs and inspiration for all from the talented DT here.
 Here's a closer look at the LHS.  Most of the products used are 'Vintage Blue' by WRMK.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the long edges on the centre strip.  On top of that I placed the pink flocked lace - gorgeous texture.  I made the photo mats from the Tim Holtz 'Kraft-Core' nostalgic collection cardstock.  I embossed the mats on my Cuttlebug and sanded the surface back to reveal some of the Kraft coloured core.
A closer look at the RHS.  I used my Nestabilities to cut the circles, brackets, rectangles and scalloped mats.  I cut the large arc using the WRMK circle cutter.
 The flowers were originally a tag but I cut them out, shaped them, inked the edges and adhered with dimensional glue gel.  I added the glitter to the centres of the flowers and also to all the flowers on the patterned papers.
 I created the swirls by just dotting some glue and covering with glitter.
I also altered the chipboard letters.  These were, originally, much paler in colour.  I couldn't resist glittering them up too!!
Ciao for now.
