So Cute

Babies are so very cute and making layouts about my granddaughter is lots of fun. The chipboard title on this first layout is painted using Tim Holtz's crackle paint. I want to add some ribbon or vine or something to weave around the flowers & butterflies but I haven't found what I like yet. Maybe someoone could give me some ideas?
The white backgrounds on these layouts really make the colours & the photos stand out.The word "cute" is a white acrylic word inked over with staz on ink. Of course there are more flowers & butterflies for a girly page.

 This layout has a fold down pocket that is edged with lace. The background has been masked & sprayed with glimmermist in a similar colour to the paper. The paper doilley was sprayed the same colour. The chipboard title was painted with crackle paint. I cut 2 flowers off the rose strip & inserted a pearl brad for the center.
I've enjoyed creating these layouts & I hope you have gained some inspiration from them. Happy Scrapping!

Holiday fun

This was our Easter morning breakfast on Sunday morming-the caffine & sugar really pepped us up!!
 Our new granddaughter Jordyn was born on Anzac Day & she is beautiful and cuddly....her first big photo shoot! She makes so many different faces and I was lucky enough to photograph a few different ones.

This layout was made with kraft card & patterned paper. The border was made by stamping doilley stamps in different colours then attaching them along the edge with double sided tape.
