***Simplify***
I'm lucky to have a friend who is a photographer and even luckier that I met her when she was still in school learning the skillz. I hire her  a couple of times a year to do some photo shoots of my family. I love her "eye" and think she does a great job at delivering what I like.

This is one of the photos from the shoot. I try to get a few of me so my kids will have them someday.
I never know when she is actually taking the photo either so I am always surprised to see what I end up with.

I still have a lot of paper left from the beautiful November "Purple Haze" kit from Scraps of Darkness. Really don't let the name fool you. This kit is anything but dark.

I fussy cut the flower from one of the papers and used it in the corners of the layout. The leaves and vines are Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Die
I used the mists and liquid pearls in the kit along with the rub ons and flowers.
There was also a wonderful technique add on using Vintaj metal and embossing folders. I made the little dragonfly with the embossing folder and then cut it out with metal cutting scissors that I have on hand.
