Thinking of You Today

Hi Ruby Rock-it fans.  Linda Kretz here to share a project I created for a special friend of mine.  She's been going through some tough times lately, and I'm hoping my basket will cheer up and let her know I've been thinking about her.  Our focus this month has been to explore some new and delightful ways we can create using our new wedding ranges!
I decided to put some blooming flowers in the basket (she loves flowers and anything pink!)  I made a little card to go with it that says "I'm Thinking of You Today".  With a separate card, she can then use the basket for little trinkets or special occasions of her own.
.  I love baskets because they can be used for so many things!  I love the new paper ranges from Ruby Rock-it - they lend themselves so well to lots of  happy projects!
Thanks for stopping by and making Ruby Rock-it part of your creative day!

  Today I am sharing with you a layout using a photo of my niece and her family as they happily vacation at the beaches of Tulum, Baja California.  I loved using the rich browns of Ruby Rock-it's Kinda Krafty paperz and the Scrap FX laser cut chipboard pieces to bring forth the beautiful colors of the picture!
I used a We R Memory Keepers punch on the 2nd paper and stamped some  some reeds in white to partially show around he edges.  It is foam dotted to the striped background paper. The Scrap FX flourish, title and twisted branches add focus to the picture.
