~My First Official Urban Lily Layout~

This is my first official blog post for Urban Swank as a DT member and I am sharing a layout I created using the Everyday Lily collection, along with a Secret Keeper window and pieces from the Urban Cuts.   You can buy Urban Lily products at the Scrap-Tastic website!

The photo is of my oldest daughter and I included some journaling for her inside the Secret Keeper. I titled the layout "I Hope You Dance," from the song by Leann Womack. The papers I used were Sushi, Sushi Stripe, and Sushi Dot.
To get this finish on the Secret Keeper window, I just used some pink mist on the inside and painted it with light pink crackle paint.
Here is a close up of the Urban Cut Alphabet. I mildly distressed the edges with a knife tool.
I cut butterfly from the Sushi Dot paper and decorated it with glitter glue and rhinestones.

My daughter no longer lives with me, so some of these questions are things I might ask her when we talk. I used a tag from the Urban Cut Accents and trailed some glitter glue for added detail.
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
