A pleasant surprise.....

My breath was taken away when I opened my email to find this adorable layout using my Christmas Presents as embellishments...thank you Doreen for sharing your talent with us and I'm sure all of you will agree that this is an inspiring page!

Happy Seventh Birthday-

You have to agree it's a great layout! Her pictures are crisp and clear and she catches the exciting moment of opening presents. Not to mention how gorgeous her seven year old son is with that terrific smile! Gosh if we could only just keep them at seven wouldn't that be wonderful? Such an innocent age.

Doreen's choice in colors are amazing and the pattern paper perfect they look so boyish and birthday all in one.

Enlarging one of the presents and making it a journaling block is such a good idea...that's why I just love we have another element from one file...that's just plan smart!

And here is how Doreen made this layout:

{I changed the size of one of the presents and made it into a journaling box. One bow is covered in glitter, another is with varnish and pearl-ex pigment. The presents are chalked and some have glitter glue as accents. I also put some pigment into glue and painted around the title. The photo corners are chipboard (store bought) and covered in micro beads.}

I just wish we could see the work from her techniques they sound stunning!
Again thank you Doreen which she will receive her choice of file in equal value to the Christmas Presents file!
