A Page for Candice by Cheryl

I loved scrapping these lovely photos that Candice took of her beautiful children. The photos were so colorful and so crisp. Perfect for Spring.

So I wanted to share a few sneak peeks. Please read Elena's post regarding 'the sneak peeks'. We aren't revealing complete pages until a later time.

I've had a crush on Shrinky Dinks since I was a kid. I could spend enough time with Shrinky Dinks and they were so my friend. Here I made some Angel/Fairy Shrinky Dink embellishments. To make your own Shrinky Dinks . . . stamp you favorite stamp onto Shrinky Dink paper at your local craft store. Make sure you stamp with Staz On (a permanent ink), color in with pencils or markers as desired and Shrink in oven. They make great embellishments or charms.

As well, I made little felt balls out of roving felt. I then cut them and placed them as centers of flowers. Try rubons on plastic and other elements of the layout.

For the letters I simply painted them, covered them with Diamond Glaze and while still wet I sprinkled chunky glitter. I love Prima's pebbles and used one here as an element.
Thanks for stopping by and thank you Candice for allowing me to scrap your darlings. They are precious! Stay tuned for more inspiration!

Warmest wishes! ~ Cheryl Waters
