"Remember" scrapbook page using newly released ECD die

Hello Crafty Friends!

How did you get started in papercrafting?  Was it a project for a party?  Or the desire to make a personal gift for someone special?  For me it was my sister, Bobby Jo.  She has four (of the most amazing) kids and she wanted to preserve memories in scrapbooks.  She asked if I could look for crafting supplies in my area...next thing I know, I am buying a few supplies for myself.  My first scrapbook pages were rudimentary- only paper, scissors, a glue stick and a corner rounder was in my stash.  Eventually the stash grew and so did my interests: cards.  Scrapbook pages are few and far between for me now.  However, when the new Elizabeth Craft Designs dies were released my thoughts once again turned to scrapbooking.  This is my second page shared this week!  The first page used the "Memories" die.  Today's page has the lovely "Remember" die:
Remember - Metal Cutting Die - Pre-Order
The photo was of my beautiful kitty, Daisy, and she was on the first scrapbook page I ever completed.  She has now passed so I wanted a special page for her in a scrapbook.  This photo of her is one of my favorites and the Remember die is a perfect elegant touch to her page.  
 The photo was mounted on Graphic 45's Botanical Tea patterned paper.  Remember was die cut in pink and mounted on a doily.  Two gold sequins were adhered on either side of the die cut and a half pearl applied.  Self adhesive lace was applied along the bottom edge of the page.  
The page was simple as I did not want to distract from the image or the die.

Thank you for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the scrapbook page.  Feel free to take a peek at all the new products released at Quietfire Design- the new releases include not only the new ECD dies but also very lovely stamps!

Have a happy, crafty day.
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
