My dear friends!!
Today is a very special day, as I am sharing my first layout for the Tresors De Luxe Design Team. When I got my first package from Lucy Oh, I squealed!!! I have been collecting vintage laces for as long as I can remember, so having this wonderful opportunity is very special to me. When I opened the box I started to "pet" all the gorgeous laces, trims, and embellishments that I get to use on my layouts. What a thrill!
My first layout is an old photo of my daughter, Jennifer when she was about 2 years old, so that makes the photo 40 years old. I made the little dress she is wearing. From birth she has had this beautiful strawberry blonde, auburn hair.
I used quite a bit of the 49th and Market Heirloom Botanicals paper, and flowers to create this layout. But, the best part is that I got to add bits and pieces of lace applique to add to the shabby, feminine style of a layout. The laces I used are:
White Venise Lace Trim, Lace Appliques, Couture Gowns, Dresses, Crafting, etc, approx.4.50" GL-184
It was very hard for me to cut up these gorgeous laces, but I truly love the effect they give my layout!!
Lucy also carries gorgeous flowers! You can see three of these little chiffon posies that I used. Here's what they look like at her Etsy Shop:
Multi Colored Chiffon Flowers with Pearls and Rhinestone Center, for Headbands, Clothing, Sashes, Set of 3, approx. 2 inches across, FL-179
Here's what they look like on my layout!
At the left hand bottom of the layout I fussy cut the sweet little basket full of flowers (49th and Market) and added a sweet purple sprig from the kit. I popped up the basket so that the sprig would have plenty of room to grow lol!!!

I really hope that you enjoyed my layout and that you will visit Tresors De Luxe for all your special embellishments and laces for your next creation. Please stop by again to see my next project!
Bye for now!
