Bliss | The Flamingo Chronicals: Bliss


This picture was one I took at my youngest daughters Debutante Ball (it's a Southern Thing). This was after the formal presentation and the waltzing and the dinner. She and her friends were just playing around and having fun - with a balloon of all things. There is my beautiful daughter, dressed in her cotillion gown, with her hair done up in curls and pearls, her date in his tuxedo  - and they are batting a balloon around!
 For this layout I used a base of Bazzill cardstock with Heidi Grace papers. I used a Cuttlebug die and embossing folder to make the flower petals at the top of the page and them stamped them with Technique Tuesday stamps. I also stamped around the page with random swirly stamps (gotta love those!) and used Stickles on a few of the images. I added a Prima flower that has been painted with Sparkle Modge Podge and then I stitched all around the white layer of cardstock (there is a green layer not shown in the photo).

The weather here in Dallas is miserable tonight! Rain, rain, rain :( and lots of wind. Here's hoping that it improves tomorrow.


  1. Anita, this is my first visit to your blog and I love you already!! Love that you work with both old and new lines and make them all look pretty. I love that you have an addiction to Prima flowers (I have the same type of storage... but oh so smaller! hehe). And I love your "About Me" section here in your blog!

  2. This is really pretty! Love green! I found you on Scrapbook Challenges Form asking for blogs! Thought I'd stop by and say hi!
