Up Close and Personal - Maja Design

Hi everyone :) This is another Guest Creative Team Member project for Maja Design. I've been wanting to scrap this photo for over a year but just couldn't find that "perfect" paper until I saw this "Walking In The Forest" collection from Maja. The photo was taken on one of the very rare ocassions that I go away for a weekend. Getting this close to an elephant was to say the least an amazing experience. One of the very few regrets I have in life is that I didn't follow my dream of becoming a Wildlife Conservationist and if I could have my life over again, that is what I would do.:) Oh well, back to!! I took the time to do a little tutorial on how to make the pinecones which are tucked between the flowers as you can see in the close-up below. Hope you give it a try:)

  3. Another stunner Cathy! an elephant IRL, wow!! you are SO good at making blooms, such a stunning lush cluster of little gems in there! Love your paper choice too, this is such an old collection almost forgotten over here but seeing your page makes me want to dig out some of the papers myself. Hope you're having a really good weekend. Hugs,
