Dueling Darlings are Capturing Memories!

Hi everyone!

Today I get to share with you a creation I finished days ago. The kit was sent to me by Jeanette (Forest Ranger - SCS) for the Dueling Darlings challenge. She is the hostess for the Dazzlers this month. Kelly is the hostess for the Divas. They wanted us to capture some memories!

Here's what I made with the cute kit Jeanette sent:


I love that little image she sent! I colored mine with Spectrum/Noir markers. The polaroid die cut she sent was white chipboard. I covered it with some of the paper she sent, used my Prima craft knife to trim out the middle and framed up my pretty ladies. I added some liquid pearls to the clear dot embellishment in the kit. I think it makes it look like one of those view master slides. KWIM? This is 6x6 in size. I'm going to use it on a scrap page. 

I think one of my favorite memories I've captured over the years has to be my children fresh from their newborn baths. Seeing all the family there at the hospital cradling these little bundles......it's a very proud and humbling moment. :)

Thanks for stopping by...

Until next time...
Blessings...

Melina, this is sooooooooooo cute! I love the way you put everything together - and wow! It never crossed my mind to cover the poloroid frame with DP. Aren't you creative?!?!?!

I'm loving all the details on it, too. You've outdone yourself! Dazzled us, for sure!

I can even smell those sweet babies after their newborn bath. Cuddles, snuggles, and happy memories!
