Red Velvet Cake

I was given the opportunity to be a Guest Designer at The Paper Mixing Bowl.  I submitted this layout for their February challenge, which is inspired by "Red Velvet Cake".   Unfortunately, there is not a link back to my blog, so I wanted to post it here as well.
This layout features photos of my talented daughter who is a brilliant artist.  I love watching her paint.  It is magical.  These photos show her working on artwork that she did while in high school.  Now she has a cute little apartment of her own and will be graduating from college in just a few short months.  My advice to her is to "create and be you".
I love the look that silhouette and cameo die cutting machines give, but I don't own one.  So, I created a similar look on my layout with my trusty, old X-acto knife.  It worked!


  1. Wow! I see where your daughter gets her talent. This is a beautiful page, with fabulous elements and creativity, luv it.

  2. This is SUCH a gorgeous layout!!!

  3. wow what a gorgeous layout!!! I can't believe you cut all of that out with an exacto knife! you are a brave woman!

  4. Ah a girl after my own heart. No Cameo here either and I adore my Xacto knife. LOL Absolutely fabulous layout. Thanks so much for your visit to my blog. Hugs!
