Thank goodness its Friday!
Here is a layout I have just finished, using a sketch from STUCK ON YOU SKETCHES. I have also done a TUTORIAL for this one, so hope you check it out to see how I made the frame using cardboard.
So here is how I put the page together.
I wanted to keep the colours simple so chose cream, white and yellow from the photo. The background cardstock is cream Bazill. I then used a Martha Stewart doily punch and punched around the lacy paper. I then used some yellow Bazill for the centre background border and again doily punched all the edges. I then took 3 different sizes of doilys and inked the edges.  I adhered all these to the page and went off to make my frame. ( See my tutorial). I then stuck the frame down and die cut the title using my new Tim Holtz die.
