It's Life's Little Moments I Love

True to my heart I love the everyday details of life, this is a photo of my 3 oldest boys back in 93 when we lived in Salem, NH. I love the simplicity of them just enjoying the moment. I also love that I can take an old snapshot and play with it in photo impact to add my personal touch to it.
I've used several brands of paper here, K&Co, Glitz, DCWV and some plain card stock. I think the chipboard pieces are from Basic Grey...not sure.
The ticket is cut from Wall Decor and More. My filigree cuts and banner are from Straight From the Nest, I've added some metal findings that I picked up from a jewelry clearance bin @ M's as well as some natural string. It's is cut from CindyLoo, I cannot remember which cart I cut little from...so sorry...if I figure it out I'll add it...I guess that means I have to many carts...lol.
I've tucked pix of the boys faces into some of the flowers...the yellow flowers are from Mother's Day Bouquet and of course the black flower is from my tutorial for SOUS this week...if you missed that pop on over and check it out!
The alpha's for Life are one of Colorbok's sticky alpha stax.
I used my Martha Stewart punch for the edge of the light card stock. Plantin Schoolbook for the hearts and once again my Mother's Day Bouquet for the leaves. After I cut the leaves I used a marker to edge the leaves and add the veins and then added some Ranger Meadow alcohol ink. The tiny alpha stickers are Memory Makers.
Another one of my fleur de plume flowers, the inside of this one is another Mother's Day Bouquet flower, water distressed. The flower centers are beads held in place with glossy accents. There is a glimpse of some more of the Straight From the Nest filigrees.
I've also added glossy accents on the title fonts.
My boysss...what a blessing...miss these days...Here you can see the Offray ribbon I've meandered along the bottom of the photos. (kinda like me meandering down memory lane today)
Hope you are having a happy day!
