Loving My Free Stuff :D - Reverie Creations DT Projects

I just want to say very quickly that I am extremely grateful for the fathers in my life. First for my husband! You are my rock, and my best friend. You do so much for our family that I can't even begin to say thank you. You make me laugh everyday and you take wonderful care of our daughter! Even when you give her bright blue snow cones : D. I love you! Then for my dad. Thank you Dad for setting the bar high of what a father should be. Thank you for teaching me to be a good person and showing me life shouldn't always be taken so seriously. I love you! And for all the other dads out there, you guys rock. Happy Father' Day!

I got to work quickly after my boxes of goodies came in! I have 4 pages of my lyrics album finished! I can't decide if I should start posting pages now or wait until the whole thing is finished. For now I will wait, but I sure as well may change my mind later : D.

In the mean time, I did use almost all of the Reverie Creations package that I received! I made a 9x9 scrapbook page and 3 little mini cards - 3x3. I was inspired by the gold foil inside the roses paper. I love how shiny it is! So I used my Coffee House Tattered Angels spray on the brown cardstock to make it shiny as well. It gave it a sort of copper color. So cool! The one bad thing is that the spray makes the paper curl and warp. So I should have let it dry under something heavy to keep the paper flat. I will remember that for next time. I knew I wanted to rubon's to look like they were sort of coming out of the pictures and then off the bottom of the page.

So here are the pics:

I got the title for my layout from one of my most favorite children's books by the same title. It's such a great story about love and motherhood.

In that top picture, Peyton still makes that face sometimes when she is sleeping. It's pretty cute.

Here are the supplies used:
  • Cardstock - American Crafts
  • Patterned Paper - American Crafts, Scenic Route {lined paper}

These pictures where taken in the hospital the morning after Peyton was born. We tool pictures too after the hospital photographer did since she was all dressed up for the first time. She was so newborn swollen and red, but so, so, so cute!

In the pictures of the cards, you can see the gold in the patterned paper better. I think these would be fun on the outside of a wedding present.

Here are the pics:
