Memories-Frosted Designs Reveal

yes, ladies.. you are not mistaken.. I am scarpping myself, again...LOL  I luv rummaging through old photos and I was actually looking for a few others for another project I'm working on and came accross this one.. It was taken back in 1999 while my in-laws were visiting us for the first time.. gosh, I look so young and skinny..LOL
I also played with my Imagine again, can't seem to keep my fingers off of it...LOL
I used the Imagines "Lori's Garden" cartridge and cut some simple designs with it and only used whit cardstock for everying.. I luv that everything matches!!
and just to let you all know that this will by my last design team project for Frosted Designs.. My 6 month term is up.. I want to thank the ladies of FD for allowing me on their amzing DT and I really enjoyed working with all of the wonderfully talented ladies over there and I hope you stop by there often and get inspired by the awesome DT..
Oh...almost forgot to share the amazingly cute sketch we worked with this week:
and here are a few close ups of the layout:

my beautiful prima flowers and I intentially wanted to stick with white.. I  luv how their simplicity looks on this layout.. plus, who can resist a little prima..LOL
Oh an I did some stamping as well.. I cut the flourish and then made a stencil with the left overs..
stamped some randomly on the layout, added the flourish and then punched some small flowers and added pearl drops to the centers.. 

and finally, a close up of me.. I was a super blonde back then..LOL  I've toned down a bit in the last few years...LOL

  1. This is so gorgeous Nanné! Love the soft colors and how u used the flourishes as stencils. Lovely :)

    (Have not been around your blog in ages. Need to come back for a closer look at the rest of your stuff :) I am slowly getting back to blog-travel-mode after vacation so will be back soon :)

  2. Ahhhhh what a beauty!
    I look at that and totally see where Amber gets it!
    I actually was surprised to see you as the star in this but what a great surprise!
    I also wanted to come and say HURRAY on your Cricut Chirp mention for your last Imagine lo. That's awesome! They love you over there!

  3. Wow! This is just beautiful! It grabbed my attention instantly. I love the stamping/ flourish die cut combo:)

  4. Oh Nanna, what a beautiful layout of you!!! Love the white, and the primas are just beautiful!!! Just a little sad to see you go.. but I'll still be scrapping with you over on SOUS!! Hugs!!!

  5. Nanne, you outdid yourself! Love the stamping and cut out swirl, it looks amazing!!!! And that picture of you is perfect for your page.

  6. Nanne, GF, this is awesome. I have LG but have not done too much with it yet but know the colors are divine. And look at that young chick in the photo .. woot, woot! I would so love to be young and skinny again .. well, maybe not young but definitely skinny!

  7. Stunning as always, love your stamping!!!

  8. Beautiful layout Nanne! I have to agree with everyone and say that I love the stamping on your layout. Something we don't see much of from you. I recently also started using my stamps. They don't do much use laying in the drawer! Love your mix of pattern papers along with all of those beautiful flowers!!! I will miss you at FD!!
