My first Manor House Creations post!!

**For my September giveaway, please go HERE**

Good evening! I simply couldn't wait until the morning to post this because I'm SO excited to be introduced today over at the Manor House Creations blog, with my very first design team layout accompanying it! I'm absolutely THRILLED to be a part of this amazing team and look very much so forward to the coming year :). Designing for a flower manufacturer is an absolute fit for me- and let me tell you, being encouraged to make flowers the focal point on a layout is a task to which I take naturally- and with MUCH enthusiasm! So let me share with you my first of three projects this month...

"10 Precious Months"
I cannot believe that two whole months have passed since I took these photos. Thankfully, my little baldy of a girl hasn't changed much in that time. She is likely my last baby, so it's very OKAY with me that she continues to retain her "baby" look about her :).

The "Winter Song" blooms are my absolute favorites from the winter release. They are nice and big, full of incredible texture, and there are no other flowers out there like them. They make the perfect focal piece on a layout!


I've unraveled one of the pink rosettes to create this pretty bow. I've also used the center of "Darling" flowers to embellish it.

~Winter Song: Embers

Oooh oooh how lucky they are to have you on their team Erin! Congrats again! I see that you have a Danish visitor - morkaren - who also writes in Danish ... she asks if your bubba's name is Aspen, pretty name and cute baby, and if you've used gesso for the background texture.
This is such a gorgeous page Erin, absolutely delightful! So looking forward to seeing your MHC pages! Have a fabbo weekend! xoxo
