Feb. SOTM is so cute! Add whatever colors you may & make these cakes look whimsical, sophisticated or cute. Personally I'm not much for coloring but... I love these cakes! Yes, I will get out my markers & blending pens for this set! They are so much fun & each cake is so different & unique.

Fun with "Grace"

Graceful colors & beautiful images enhance these pages. The colors are rich & eyepleasing. I can't wait to use old photos of my Mom or Dad in this layout. Or maybe new photos printed in sepia.
These flowers are so much fun to make! Lots of sizes & layers. Bend or curl them with your fingers or a tool. Use jewels, pearls or buttons for the centers . Rub the edges in ink & layer with pop dots. Create your own with any cardstock or pattern papers.
