You can find it HERE for only $17.99 for 180 sheets..what a bargain!!  Here is a layout I put together using this collection along with this week's sketch from SYAO paper secrets.

Frame and titles are also from Stella Rose collection. Rosettes cut with Tim Holtz die. Flower centers cut from Prima packaging.

Time for the May SFYTT over at I heart 2 stamp blog ...its always exciting every month to see what the newest sketch is going to be. This month happens to be hubby's I used this sketch to make him a bday card using one of Mo's  digi stamps.  "King for the Day"..haha..that is soo him!  His recliner and remote are his favorite on a good lazy day, love this image and its SO fun to color. Too bad they didn't have a bald one, lol..I was stumped at what color to color his hair being that he's been shaving his for 20years..haha!  I've used copics in a wide range of blues and greens.  Paper by Basic grey along with some trim and buttons from my stash. I think it will bring a smile to his face..along with the gift certificate for an hr. deep tissue massage at the spa tucked inside. :)   (I should have bought me one too!)

This layout was designed with the Generations kit from Simple Stories. I am my Mother's child indeed and we both love all things vintage..and because I love this collection so much..I know she will as well!  I have added some fabric flags on pearl stick pins along with a banner of doilies...soo cute!  The fabric rose trim came from Wild Orchid Crafts and is simply stunning with a little line of silver thread along the edges..very vintage!

Week 13 SYAO

Soo...I'm so in love with Simple Stories paper collections..OMG...they are amazing. This is from the Generations set and I found that each side was so pretty I had to order a second set so that I could use both sides. I wish the sets included 2 of each piece..that would be very handy indeed and solve my hoarding issue!  I never want to use the last of that beautiful piece because I cringe at chopping it up, lol!   The set comes with these adorable photo overlay the doily one!!  These were not the photos I intended to use for this layout..but the family Christmas photos I "thought" I ordered turned out not to be :(  I want to thank my friend Linda for the beautiful crochet heart..isn't it the cutest thing ever!!  Thanks Linda!!   So this is week 13 SYAO sketch...I'm late in posting it on my blog because my allergies got the best of me last week and I thought I was going to succumb to a death by stuffy nose and hay fever.  Its terrible!!  But I've managed to survive :)  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!   Hugs,T
