I made this layout as my first project for Maja Design after a long leave of absence. It is wonderful to be back there. Thanks so much for dragging me back here Jenny. If not for you I would still not be scrapping and I would still not remember how much I loved it and still do :) This beautiful girl in the photo is my darling daughter Heidi. Yes I am biased and I am allowed to be ...hahaha!!
I used paper from three beautiful collections as seen below:)
Here are a few close-ups of my page:)
The flowers and the brick stamp is from Prima. The little wispy bits you see amongst the flowers are just pieces of paper which I sliced super-thin and that way you achieve a natural sort of curl. The peachy ribbon flowers came out of my stash and goodness knows where I got them from. The branches were cut with a die from Memory Box called "Woodland Branch" and I got all these yummy items from my special friend Merle at Scrap and Card Boutique.
The beautiful leafy circle is also from Memory Box called "Tupelo Circle" and I adorned it slightly with some Perfect Pearls. Both butterflies are stamps from Marianne Design called Eline's Huis. I stamped them, cut them out and stuck it on. The title work is done with clear stamps fromChiswick and the stamp on the corner of the photo is a tiny little Prima stamp.
The little circles above and to the bottom left of the photo (sorry, I forgot to take a close-up of them) is just a little bottle top I saw lying on my shelf and I grabbed it, dabbed on some ink and stamped it on the page and stuck a drop of Perfect Pearls inside the little circles. I liked it:)
This page is also my entry for the July challenge at Scrap Around The World. I was very much inspired by the little photo on the top left. The colour in Heidi's scarf is almost a perfect match to the colour of that beautiful little chest of drawers:)
And that my friends, is my story for today:) Now, I just need to keep on scrapping so my mojo can start flowing and if all goes well, I will see you again real soon :) The last few days have been absolutely freezing here but I love the cold weather right now. So for those of you experiencing winter in all its' glory, keep warm, be happy and take care. :) xxx
