C'est Tres Magnifique!

One of my new favourite scrapbook manufacturers is Glitz Design and how lucky was I that I got to design with the French Kiss collection!

This collection was in the Tickle Trunk Memories June kit and it looks like it is still available so I would highly recommend that you treat yourself to it because it's FABULOUS!!!

I'd like to share a layout that I made using the kit that features a photo from my daughter and son-in-laws wedding.

I'm super excited to see that I can enter this in the July challenge at Glitz. Phew...I just noticed this in the nick of time too!!!

Besides the products found in the TTM kit I also used:
Tim Holtz alteration dies & ink
MyStampBOX stamps
Jillibean twine
embossing powder

I really want to get some more of these wood veneer shapes from SC. The birds added such a nice touch. I could have left them in their natural state but I chose to colour them with my Copics.
