Black & White photo, Kiki Art, and My Stamp Box oh My!

So, I finally cleaned out my scrapbook space enough that I could get in there and play a bit today. We've been taking lots of walks lately because the weather was so warm and the flowers are coming out all over... while walking we all took our cameras. It was so fun to see the girls snapping pictures of the things that they loved the most along the way; the flowers, dogs, and of course...the horses.

I was lucky enough to catch this shot of my oldest and knew that I wanted to convert it to black and white because of all the great texture in the shot....it was a perfect match for this great paper from Kiki Art. I created the flower using the He Loves Me stamp set by My Stamp Box. I even stamped this awesome Kiki Art button with Stazon and the great swirl from the stamp set.



Pattern paper: Kiki Art Clouds & Balloons (this is the back side...isn't it awesome)
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamps: My Stamp Box He Loves Me
Ink: Stazon
Large white button: Kiki Art
Adhesive: Zapdots by Helmar and GlueArts Glue glider pro

I hope you find some inspiration around you as the weather starts to change....

Happy crafting....Lynda

Love this. I like that while it is centered in black and white, all the gray tones really make an impression. Gorgeous!
