Hi everyone, hope you had a great week end.
For my inspiration for this layout I have used a sketch challenge over on Scrap 365.
Original sketch by Gabrielle Pollaco

I matted my photos  first. Then I ripped down some pretty paper to 10x10inches.
I adhered this to my background cardstock.
I then added a white doily.
I added my matted photos.
I then started to layer up with cardboard, music paper, script paper, hessian and even a coffee filter!
I added a music paper border at the base of the photos.
Then I added my painted corner swirls.
I then added a dusty attic swirl.
Next I started to decorate with flowers, butterflies, a little bird on a branch and stamens and pearls.
Then I added a few more layers along the outside edges.
I ripped a little window in the top and put some script paper behind.
I added some hearts and the title. Page done!
A quick and easy page for you to try. Should take about an hour if you have everything prepared.
Why not give it a go, have fun.
