Reveal Day at Swirlydoos *Things Remembered*

It's that time again!! Reveal for the February Kit, "Things Remembered", from Swirlydoos. Although it's a few days late, it's totally worth the wait!! This kit is bursting with beautiful pattern papers from TPC Studio and coordinating embellishment. Perfect for your heritage pictures or even your everyday photos!!

The Best of Times
Here are my girls back in 2004. Nefferteari was 5 and Cleapatra was 4. This was the age were I was constantly asked if they were twins. Now that they are older you can see the age difference. I'm so glad that I don't have to answer that question!

 Here are some close-ups. I used the corner punched technique on a circle. I cut the circle in half and place each piece on opposite sides if the page.

I used two items from the Embellishment Add-on. The peach flowers and the Metal plaques.

This page is based on the Exclusive Sketch. Our very own Robin use the sketch on several of her pages. But, she flip, flopped and reversed to get a different look each time. Check out the forums or the gallery to see her pages.

I used some flowers from a past kit and some butterflies from my Etsy.

Just a close-up of the distressing.

This is a photo of my father's mother and sister. I have to say that this page look so much better in person. The camera couldn't capture the softness of the layout.The colors of the close-ups are more like the real page. Anyways, I wanted the pattern paper to be a bit lighter. So, to give it a "Ghosted" effect, I took a Brilliance white stamp pad and swiped it all over the paper.

I used the little pearl dangle to make a charm for the stick pin.

 I added some Diamond Dust and Stickled to the petal edges.

This is a picture of my mom holding me not to long ago..hehehee!!! Yeah right, you can totally see 70's written all over the pictures. LATE 70's that! I did a lot of wet distressing here.

 I used the rub-on that came in the Embellie Add-on on a treated DA chippie.

Just a close-up of the wet distressing. We have a tutorial on how to get this effect in the Tutorial section.
