Hi guys, here is another layout for you. This time I used a sketch from CREATIVE SCRAPPERS 193, to create this layout. Its always good to start off with some inspiration! For this one I double matted my photo onto two peices of Bazzil cardstock. I chose some pink shabby paper for my background. I used a doily, I know! I then cut two borders from the Bazzil and cut out some scallops on them, one with scissors and the other with a template. I added some ribbon. I then hand made the swirls. The white pearls are jost dotted along a swirly line on acetate, and the black one I used Perfect Pearls onto acetate. I used a template from a Prima swirl I had. I Added lots of flowers, punched out some butterflies, added some pearls and the title. I hand made a tag for the journaling that fits behind the corner borders. "Remember" is a tag from a kit, the next flowery border is from some Prima packaging! Waste not want not I say! I then matted them onto the dark pink Bazzill. Why dont you give it a go. The sketch is below.

The inspiration comes from the first monthly challenge - use a punch and Happy.
So, here is my card using different flower punches and a leaf punch with the title Happy Thoughts.
Ive used all my favorites here, flowers, pearls, bling and even a doily. And of course pink, my all time favorite. Hope you like it. BFN.

Hi - Im still getting my summer pictures done, although this is from September.
I used a cardboard background from Prima, Double Doilys! yes, Bazzill cardstock in 3 colours taken from the photo, and a few bits n bobs.
The layout was an inspiration from Pencil Lines, which I reversed. Well, up side down anyway. See below. No flowers on this one which makes a change, no pearls and no bling, oh dear!

Hi here is my take on the Creative Scrappers Sketch No. 190.
I used a large doily for the background on top of some Bazzill Bling. I used the last remnants of my Christmas Magic papers by Fancy Pants for the hand cut baubles and borders. I inked the edges and added a few sparkly gems and chipboard snowflakes and stars. The journaling block is also Fancy Pants Christmas Magic that I bought at SJ Crafts. Hope you like it. The sketch is here too.

Hi here is a page Ive done using Prima Romantique Papers. Ive used an old sketch from Prima, Jan 2009, for inspiration. I love the colours with these papers, very soft and feminine. Ive done lots of layers and added pearls and ric-rac and lace and butterflies and prima flowers, couldnt fit a doily in! Ive also used some music paper from an old music book and Ive inked all the edges to help everything stand out a little. The deep burnt orange backing paper is Bazzill. Hope you like it.

A few small die cut ferns and thats it.
