Hi. Last week we had my sister in-law and her son, Miss C's cousin over from England and we had such a great time. The kids really miss each other and usually only see each other once a year during the summer. This year we don't have plans to go back until Christmas, so they came over for the week. I love seeing them together; they get along so well.

Them being here did mean giving up my scrap area to make room for a bed so I was happy to get back to it this week. I haven't done a mixed media page for a while and wanted to dabble a bit.

 I love this romantic background paper with the music notes and lantern. I love the photo, taken at a charity ball - a rare one where both of us look kind of presentable.
 I sprayed and dabbed mist inks on the background before adding molding paste over a rose stencil and then adding some stamping around the area. For the hanging heart, I painted, then crackled and gessoed to give it more texture.
 I then layered on the die cuts and flowers. I love how the yellow spiral flower makes for a bright focal point next to the photo.
 I dug deep into my stash of flowers just to have some different contrast in flowers; fabric, paper, felt and mulberry.
