This is going to be a quick post just to celebrate the month of February and my wonderful family. If you happen to read my last post then you know I am delighted to be in charge of the Monthly Challenge on the All Things Tim Yahoo Group . I love this yahoo group and the talented people it makes up, which brings me back to this post. For the February Challenge I have selected Valentines Day, Romance, or something/someone you love.
So here is my scrapbook layout for the challenge. It is all about my Family - the people I love in my life.
I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Banners die to adhere my saying to. The bird is also a Tim Holtz die. It is called the Caged Bird. I added a bit of stickles to the wing and the branch to add some sparkle to the page. For the birds beak and eye I used Viva pearl pen in black. The bird caged was inked up with versa mark embossing ink and then embossed with frayed burlap distress embossing powder. I then went over it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to. I thought this gave it a rusty look.
I should mention that the gorgeous papers are Basic Grey. I just love the colors of these.
So that is all for today. I hope you celebrate the month of February with the people in your life you love.
