You Deserve Pearls!

New week, new inspiration. Plus, a chance to win $50 to spend at


So, what's going on over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this go around?
I'm glad you asked...
This week, it's all about pearls. 
When I think of pearls, I think of someone special. And since today is my eldest daughter's birthday, I think I should scrap a nice and pearly page all about her!

Here we go!

A little mist action:
After stamping on some black, l think it's time to stamp up some embossing ink to prepare for our Perfect Pearls:

 Brushing on the Perfect Pearls:
Oh, I love that! The black stamping peeks through just enough while still letting the Perfect Pearls add their special touch:
 A little more mist added and now my photos:
 Time to cut some strips free-hand style to layer up:
 A bit of fringe doesn't hurt either:
 Now for some embellishments. I LOVE this punch. It is so versatile!
 My little pinked circles all tucked around with a bit of vintage ribbon:
 More pearls! How fabulous are those stick pins? I think they will add the perfect pop of red to this page:
And indeed they do :)
 And after the usual finishing touches of twine, pen work and splatters....

There we have it!
That was fun! Layering on stamps, mists and pearls to create a background. Then accenting my embellishments with pearlized stick pins and sprinkling around some pearls...


You're amazing. In fact, you deserve pearls!

So, what will you do with pearls this week?
