Greener than green

This layout is a combination of a whole lot of ranges!! (and the photo is a bit left wing low!!). The star diecut paper is from the MM Animal Crackers range, the frame is Fabscraps, the script paper is from the 7G range! A lot of little extras added to create and interesting page as the photo is definitely not an award winner - it is the memory that plays with my heart strings!!

The lace flower in the middle is my own creation and I then added rub-on corners, glitter and chipboard letters, sparkly brad flowers and a rub-on to the frame! Photo turns complete the look of this layout (guess this isn't REALLY what they meant when they said GO GREEN!!!)

Prima Wedding

I fell in love with the Prima Lily the moment I saw it!! Combined with the Prima pearl swirls and the lacey photo border it looks perfect with my mom's wedding photo! I love how the lace also leads the eye to the lace detail in the dress and the pearls go perfectly with the little pearl earrings! A little lace ribbon and freehand cut birdie completes the look. The layout was so perfect, I just had to scraplift the idea!

Looking at the photo - I can still see the same love in her eyes today when she looks at dad! Isn't that amazing! Absolute contentment, happiness and fulfilment!

Storage Galore!

What a stunning project!! I completed the storage drawer by Kaisercraft with 7Gypsies paper and I think it is gorgeous - even if I have to say so myself! This will actually be my new jewellery box on top of my dresser (no - I do not live in the wild outdoors - BAD lighting indoors :) It is a bit fiddly but once you get the hang of it, it goes fairly quick. Lovely project to do with friends as you can chat and laugh (and eat sublime home-made milk tart - what good friends I have!!) as you cover box after box after box. The bookplates are also 7Gypsies and add a bit of glamour to the project. It is also nice and sturdy........
and fairly childproof :)
