MCT 17th Edition May Stamp Release BLOG HOP!

Hello Lovers of all things creative!!!  Welcome to My Creative Time's May Release Blog Hop!  This is a HUGE hop so let't get right to it!  You should have arrived here from Miss Leanne!  I just know she has something wonderful to share with us!  If you just popped in to see me, you'll REALLY want to go to the beginning at Miss Emma's.  Make sure you leave a comment along the way so you have more chances to win the huge giveaway!!!

***disclaimer alert***   This is waaaay prettier than the picture shows.  I could not get a good picture to save my life.  I'm not sure if it's because the colors are so muted or what. The inking isn't as strong as it shows in the picture and the embossed mat isn't that white either. 

I added a bit of chunky glitter to the curly label and the flower petals.  Along with .05mm lt. blue hemp twine and pearls.  I cut several flowers using MCT Flower Petal die, then running it through a crimper in different directions.

This is the picture that's going on this layout, it's from my 25th anniversary last year! (just didn't have time to print)


recipe:
Sophisticated Cricut Cartridge
boarder ~ welded 2 at 5.40 x 1.67 in my gypsy
Teresa Collins and PTI paper
Tim Holtz ink

I love your layouts. The picture of your oldest daughter at the age of 3, sporting that mustache, is just precious! I love the layout and colors of that LO!! The plaid hat on the masculine tag made me think of my father. He used to wear plaids and stripes and I would ask my mother to tell him to change. Your final layout is so pretty and the beautiful photo will look great on it!
