Southern Girls Challenge

Hey All! Hope you're having a wonderful day! I just wanted to stop in and give you a little reminder about the current Southern Girls challenge. It's an easy one this time around cause Anything Goes.
You've got just about a week left to enter and there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs! Our Int. sponsor is Debs Creations who has some awesome images exclusive to her store(you can see some of them on the SG site) and our AUS/NEZ sponsor is our very own Trace and Lou who will have a wonderful prize package!
Now, I was hoping to have a new card to share with you today, but DD is teething AGAIN and of course has a cold of top of it, so she's been UBER crabby! So, I thought I'd share with you a couple of layouts I did and framed for my sisters for Christmas
This here is my little sister Cheryl with our dad. My sisters are at the age where they're making money and don't have any attachments and pretty much buy what they want, so I was looking for something meaningful this Christmas. Our father passed away when I was 15 and my sisters were about 5 and 7, so I thought this would be something they would appreciate.
I made the flower with some lace I had and otherwise just used some trim and buttons for the rest of the adornments. I also distressed the edges of all the photos. I'm sure you've seen some much better layouts around there, but I'm a little out of practice...I discovered cardmaking, lol.

This I made for the younger of my sister's, Ashley. Again, I kept the embellishments simple as I wanted the focus to be on the pictures. The pearls are mostly a set of Prima's that I cut up to spread around and then added a few of my own. I believe the flower is from Craft Brulee, but I will have to look that up to be sure.

Well, that's all for me today, please be sure to stop by and check out the Southern Girls challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!
