Hi everyone! This is Maria! And it’s my first official post for Creative Embellishments. I’m super excited to be a part of this amazing team of ladies. I can’t wait to meet you all and see what fabulous things you do with the monthly challenges and awesome assortment of product. There are SO many inspirational pieces in the shop right now. I found it extremely hard to narrow down to just a handful while shopping for my first few projects. I wanted everything!!

For today’s layout i used the Time Flies chipboard frame set. I adore all of the cute frames Creative Embellishments offers! You’ll be seeing a lot of them in my projects.

DSC_9545I had this old picture of me laying around and in sorting through photos for this layout i came across one similar of my daughter. It got me to thinking about how i always feel time is going by way to fast and before i know it, she’ll be grown. I sit and think about how my mom must have sat and thought the same thing. As a kid growing up, time drags on. You can’t wait to grow up. But for moms, that’t not the case. You dread the day when your baby isn’t your little baby anymore. So that is where my inspiration came from for this layout and these Time Flies frames were perfect for it.

DSC_9549For my backround i started out with white cardstock and used some paint to create an ombre effect. I knew i wanted these frames to be very noticeable so I painted them black to really stand out against the colorful backround.

DSC_9548The embellishments on this page are very minimal for me but i really wanted to draw attention to the frames and the ombre backround. So for embellishments i used a few word stickers, enamel dots and wood veneers.

DSC_9551I hope you like today’s post and i look forward to sharing many more of my projects with you.

See you around!
