This Beautiful Moment

This beautiful moment must have been special as I have now scrapped it twice. My niece took this photo when she was about 7 0r 8 and I have loved it ever since. I found a spare copy that Helena must have given to me so I couldn't resist scrapping it again.

The big paper flowers are LOVELY and I bagged every single one of them that my secret flower lady had!! You would swear they are Prima but then I had to go and alter it by brushing on some gesso to tone it down a little.

This week I was the lucky recipient of a parcel all the way from Singapore...yup I won my first (and probably last giveaway) from the supremely talented Wendy Kwok. My bag full of lace and cotton lace arrived with a few extras in it...some brads and pins and pretty beads and butterflies. I used the K&Co covered brads straightaway on this layout and added the pink and white floral trim that came in the parcel too.

Ha I just realised I added more dry brushing on the layout with my gesso...I must have thought I was still making the Recipe Book!!

Love and moments to treasure

Who cares how many times you use a photo when the outcome is so beautiful. I have always love these range of papers and love the tear effects you have used. Love the bling swirls too. Was at the Hobby House this weekend and was lucky to delve in a newly delivered unpriced box which contained some more lovely swirls. Your layouts as always to die for.
