There's Beauty in the Hibiscus By Jennifer Snyder

Welcome to the 2Crafty Blog.  Jennifer Snyder  here to share a few creations today,  including a newly released amazing piece of 2Crafty chipboard, the "Hibiscus Frame".
  This piece is art all on it's own. 

Here is a photo of the "Hibiscus Frame".  Pretty spectacular, don't you think?  Because of it's stand alone beauty, I decided not to cover it with paints or gels, beads or embossing enamel.  The natural color of the chipboard was actually perfect for the papers I was using.

I decided to cut the frame and use it on each of the corners of the layout.

The papers were part of the Flying Unicorn kit for March. 

                                           This is "Live Laugh Love" from 2Crafty.  
                                     I wanted this to be bold because it is my sentiment.

I also used the "Mini Word Set 1" m00542. 
 It's small and can be tucked anywhere as a subtle accent.

Here are some close ups of the chipboard for you to enjoy!

2Crafty and CSI Team Up
Here is the second piece I wanted to share.   2Crafty and CSI - Colors Stories Inspiration teamed up for Feb.  This is case file 155 with a gorgeous soft palate.  I thought the soft wonderful papers from Maja Design  would be a great choice.   Come play along with CSI.

My design is from a sketch by The Nifty Pixel, aka  Em Stafrace. 

So here is my take on case file 155: 
At CSI - one must journal.  I am not the queen of journaling but here it is:  
I have some friends going through difficult, challenging times - depression, illness, death of loved ones ( yes including beloved pets) and life situations that would test the fortitude of even the strongest.  
Their lives have been shaken, their faith has been questioned and the days are very dark.   To you.... 
I share my hope with you, that one day soon, the clouds will part and you will reclaim  the joy and peace that was meant for your life.   BELIEVE

I used some wonderful 2Crafty chipboard pieces on this.  
6"Circle Revolution Frames"
"Doily Frames"
"Peace Doves"
"Flourishes 2"
These are the mini "Flourishes 2"
