Teresa Collins 'Family Stories'

Hi there everybody! Long time no 'see'.  I've been busy behind the scenes, working and creating whenever I get a moment.  I just haven't had a chance to blog, so got more than usual to share today.  This month my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store contained the beautiful Teresa Collins 'Family Stories' collection. Here is what I did with it. :)
The first layout is of DS and I.
Love this washi tape with the cute little hearts.  The chipboard under the 'This was awesome' sticker is 2 Crafty 'Chevron Bits'.
The stars are from the decorative buttons packet.  The chipboard title is from WOW and the flair badge is from The Greatest View, available from The Scrapbook Store here.

For the next layout I used a family pic taken in January 2008.
 Used another flair badge from The Greatest View. :)

And the last one is of DH and I having a 'perfect moment'. :)   
I spread a nice thick layer of Atelier Heavy Gesso Primer over my page and used The Crafters Workshop 'Mini Punchinella' template to add a bit of subtle pink. :) The arrow, word and mini house are new WOW wood veneer.
The blue hearts were created by using one of the glitter borders and the MFT 'Layered Hearts Border' die.
 The small hearts are the insides of the heart strip.
 Altered the layered sticker a bit by adding another layer or two.
That's all I have for today.  Thank you so much for visiting today.  Hope you have lovely weekend.
Until next time!
