Hi everyone, I have been playing about with my blog, sorry it keeps changing! Its because I don't really know what Im doing and am trying it all out by trial and error! It was looking a bit messy so I hope I have simplified it once and for all.

Anyway,  here is my latest layout.
I used a sketch from My Creative Scrapbook for my inspiration. See sketch below.

So, for this layout I chose the colours from the photo and I matted my photo in brown then blue, then brown.
I turned the base layer into a doily effect by using a Martha Stewart doily punch, which I then adhered to white cardstock.
I then used a honeycomb stamp and texture paste and stamped onto the background. I also did some stamping with brown ink.
When this had dried I added my layers as per the sketch.
I then added a matted journaling box to the side.
This done I started to decorate.
I made the banners first then I added my stickers and flowers( some of which I made) and pearls.
I used mainly white and aqua but I wanted to pick out the pink dummy and green jellies.
Last but not least I added the title.
I hope you like it.
