Fondue Fun


I have my great-grandmother to thank for this picture. She made a scrap-book for me when I was little, and had this photo, along with art work that I had colored at school, in it. I think I learned from her at an early age to document the little things in life.
I had so much fun using my Cheery Lynn Designs dies on this page. The Sunflowers are really easy to make, but add so much warmth and dimension. My small flowers were made with the Miniature Rose. I used the Garden Gate, turned on it's side to ground my flowers. For greenery, I used my ever faithful Fanciful Flourish and Dimensional Large Leaves #1.


My photo is framed with the Mini Pearl Rectangle Mega Doily - it is so cool to be able to adjust your cut to get the size frame that you need. If you're not sure how to do this, check out Mike's Reflections Boutique Workshop Video to learn more about this fantastic series of dies. My large doily is the Mega Polynesian Sail.


Under my photo, I added some fancy borders to my layers of patterned paper, using the Daisy Lace Bracelet and the Dancing Doily Lace Border.

We would love to invite you to play along with the weekly Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge. The theme this week is celebrations. We will be choosing our top three favorite entries, as well as awarding a $20 gift certificate to one talented scrapper.
