2020…First Layouts of the New Decade!

Happy New Year to all, hope that you all had a lovely time celebrating with family and friends. My New Year celebrations were spent with my girlfriends who help me get through every year with love, laughter and support. None of them are scrapbookers and they don’t really get it, but they are artists and we try to spend arty times together throughout the year. 2019, was a little lacking on our normal arty events with us all dealing with busy lives. I hope to make more effort this year in keeping our creative catch-ups happening with a few arty outings throughout the year.

Anyhow, to kick off my 2020 scrapping, I chose to do a scraplift. The problem I have is 2020-01-02 09.13.09that I don’t know who created the original layout, I tried Google image search and had no luck…they linked it to artificial flowers! I wonder why? Haha. So, if you know whose layout this is please let me know, I would like to credit them? What I loved about this layout was the negative space and the layering on both sides of the layout.

My attempt started with building up some background using gesso and a stencil. The main reason I did this was that I didn’t really have a whole heap of embellishments to use with my photos, plus it gave me time to get messy and really play. I wanted to use some new supplies from Santa, the papers, plus use up some neglected products, the ribbon and frames.

I blended out the gesso edges, rubbing it with my fingers. Then, I sponged on some oxide distress ink, as the white gesso was a bit too stark.

Next, I mounted and built up the layers behind the photos and used the same papers to begin the corner embellishment cluster.

I then, layered up my embellishments with some found old Sizzix cut die cuts, wood veneers and die-cut alphas for the title. The last touch was adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops to create enamel dots. I’m slowly getting better at applying the Nuvo drops, though some are trickier than others due to how thick the mix is.

The finished layout is pleasing but I do need to add some journaling about why we have to do this for every new tree planted, one word…kangaroos! They devastate pretty much anything new, if they can reach it they will eat it and the tree guards can not be removed until the tree is well established.2020-01-02 08.51.33-1

The second layout for 2020 is about my husband’s shoes, not a topic that most people would scrap. The reason I wanted to capture this memory is that he is finishing up his baking career, he did his last shift two days ago. No more flour-dusted shoes and night shift, it will be a change for us all having him home in the evenings and not having him arrive home while I am drinking my morning cup of tea.

2020-01-02 09.54.03

The papers I used were from Santa, a mix pulled from several paper pads, including this gorgeous alpha sheet from Maggie Holmes’s Bloom collection. I fussy cut this sheet to use as embellishments and selected four of the alpha cards for this layout.

I smeared some white gesso onto two opposite corners on my background to try and get a floury texture and sprinkled on some white ink for spots of flour. In the end, most of this got covered by embellishments and is hard to see in the finished layout photo.

Then, I went to town mounting and layering papers, adding the photos, embellishments and titles. I quite like how it turned out and think it just needs a thin journal strip at the base outlining the story.

2020-01-02 12.14.02-1

The last two layouts I completed are of my grandson, I tried to add some bling to both and use up some sequins. The top layout is made with a Vicki Boutin, mixed media, printed cardstock. Yep, Santa thought that I needed some time off from creating my own mixed media backgrounds and bought me the paper pad. I couldn’t resist adding a touch of colour and stencilled around the edges using a Uniquely Creative stencil and some TH distress inks. Both layouts have some Maggie Holmes and Shimelle papers/embellishments, and the bottom layout has some more Nuvo drops (don’t look too closely, some of the dots are not round…haha).

2020-01-03 07.47.44-1

I hope you all are getting some time to scrap and have a fabulous crafty year. For some of our Australian friends and crafters, life is tough at the moment with the extreme fires burning across our country. Many have lost homes and loved ones, if you can support them in some way, please do? It may be just in prayers, offering accommodation, food and supplies, or donating cash to one of the many collection funds which have been set up across Australia and the World. Every little bit will help in this intense time of need. Thank you to all our emergency services and volunteers across the country who are working at full capacity, and to the USA firefighters who are coming to help us out. Let us all hope that rain will arrive soon and help quench the flames, it is really the only thing that will stop this firestorm.

 

Happy scrapping everyone  🙂

Finish or Fix?

Hello,

Well, in my part of the World there has been very inclement weather, the type that makes you want to stay inside in front of the fire, and that is exactly what I have been IMG_7696doing. When I haven’t been working I’ve been snuggled up reading, scrapbooking or sorting. The sun has been beaming sometimes but it has been bitterly cold and so, I am more than happy to sort and clean spaces.

My studio (aka son’s old bedroom) was one of the areas targeted and I spent a lot of time going through some sets of shelves, looking for completed layouts (yes, I have been known to shove them into spaces to file on another day) and working out what exactly was in some of those pizza boxes. Do any of you have a pizza box problem? I have real dilemmas over keeping them or not keeping them. They are fabulous for storage (as long as you label and remember what the label means) and I have at least two dozen empty ones under my desk…someday I might need them. Not one of them has ever had pizza in them!

Anyway, I’m off track. I found a pizza box labelled ‘layouts to finish & file’. Great I thought, more completed layouts to pop into albums, I have been filing layouts this week.IMG_7602 Nope, there was three finished layouts and a dozen not finished! And…they were old! Not just a little old, big old, like 12-15 years old! So, I’m sitting on the floor looking at these layouts and I laughed at how terrible some of them were, and I cringed and questioned what was I thinking? They were terrible, there was no design thought, no embellishments on many, no style what so ever and certainly no mixed media. They were seriously old school and I could see why I hadn’t been interested in finishing them. Hmm… what they did have was photos, not all of them great either but still images of family history which needed to be rescued. So, after pondering on how far I had changed in scrapbooking technique and skill, plus attitude (Yep, at one stage in my life I did not like or see any benefit in scrapbooking, I even complained about having to do it (in my workplace), I was a stamper/artist. My husband loves to remind me about this, now that every spare minute is spent on scrapping.), anyhow,  I decided to finish or redo the layouts.

Here we go, with much shame, I present layout one out of the pizza box, unfinished and ugly. A creation with a very seventies colour scheme and very busy pictures filled with my family. You can see that it is so uninspiring, I think that olive green and brown was selected based on the seventies furniture and walls in the photos. It does have a nice frame on the main pic.

IMG_7591

So, here is what I changed and what I did. Basically, I took it apart, thinking that I would use some of the cardstock in the new format. I did use a little but not much. I must say that the double-sided tape used to adhere the photos were strong, it was hard work getting it apart. I wish I knew what brand tape I had used.

 

I started with some mixed media, I wanted to get some colour in the layout and used the party balloons pictured as inspiration. I was after a fun, chaotic, party feel. I applied watercolour paint to my white cardstock in a circular pattern, trying to create a border around my photos. Some of the paint was applied with a brush and some was flicked onto the cardstock. I ended up having to extend the colour further around the edges, so it was peeking outside the photo edges.

Then,  I worked on each photo, matting them and building up layers of patterned paper (scraps from previous layouts) and adding some embellishments.

IMG_7594

I have been binging on YouTube and watching the HipKit Club team whilst I am cleaning and scrapping and decided to add some thread to my page.

The finished layout is messy, fun and bright and over-embellished. Some may think the simple, clean line which was in the original version was better, I like the fun messy look. Most importantly, I had lots of fun creating it and this layout will finally be put in the family album.

IMG_7698

One finished and eleven more to go.

Happy scrapping 🙂

May 2019 CKC Layouts #5-#7

Hello everyone,

Today I am playing catch up on my blog, May is a crazy time of the year for me and my family and finding time to sit and blog is tricky. In May, every weekend is a party! We celebrate three (out of 6) family birthdays, mine included, and we also have Mother’s Day in Australia, add to that NSD (day, week, month…haha), the ACC Cyber Crop and then work stuff (standardised state testing, etc.) and life gets busy!

So, here I am sharing 3 layouts which I have squeezed in over the last few weeks, but haven’t found the time to share on my blog. Working backwards today…

Layout #7

This layout features photos of my friends on holiday with me, we do an Art Trail tour throughout the W.A., South West and Greater Southern Region. As we travel, we stay at different local backpacker accommodation. We prefer cheap accommodation, then we have more money to spend on art/craft supplies, artworks, food and happy juice! These photos are when we arrived home late after a fabulous day out meeting artists and talking and viewing art, then a gourmet meal and plenty of happy juice, and we decided to play Scrabble. Things got a little silly, who knew that such words existed…um, they don’t!

Using papers from my May CKC kit, I decided to create a layered border around my layout. I tend to always cut out the middle of the paper when layering, gives you more paper to use later. I thought the text paper would work well, given we were playing Scrabble in the photos.

Next, I thought I would add some letters to the page using stamps and archival ink. I also splattered on some watercolour paint in turquoise, red and blue.

I added a few tag and quote embellishments, some are from Kaisercraft and the little quotes are from Uniquely Creative. Then, I added my title and some subtitles. The main title is using American Crafts, Jewelry Box, Thickers and the subtitle is also an American Crafts,  foam Thickers, called Happy Life, which I love and am trying to buy more of, but finding them sold out at most stores.

The finished layout, I am happy with it, it is fun and a little haphazard, much like the game we were playing.

IMG_7398

Layout #6

These photos gave me the opportunity to use some of the tropical papers and embellishments in my kit. Most of what I used came from the DCWV Bahama Mama paper pad which features lots of pineapples, flamingos, bananas and tropical foliage. Some of the papers have pink foil which gives it a little sparkle. I was interested in using the foliage papers, as the local cafe where we were having drinks has lots of these types of plants and you can see them in the photos.

I started by adding some patterned paper (flamingos, which had nothing to do with the photos), a doily and an embellishment 6×4 card which I trimmed down. I thought about where my photos would be placed. I had wanted to include three photos but it just didn’t look right, so one got binned. I ended up trimming down the tropical background and mounting it onto some green cardstock, I seem to have a thing for borders at the moment.

IMG_7359

I felt like adding a bit of sparkle to the layout and strategically splashed on some Heidi Swapp, Mustard Color Shine. This would be my next favourite Color Shine, after the gold, it really glows and is vibrant, some of them are not as showy.

Oops…doily wrinkles will need to be covered.

Then I mounted my photos and began building layers of paper and cardstock behind IMG_7374them. I had fun adding the embellishments, I really wanted to use up quite a few of the embellishments from my kit, many of the ones I used are from a Heidi Swapp ephemera pack and some I fussy cut from the AC Bahama Mama papers.

I like how the layout turned out, it is one more layout towards our family moments album, about our long lost relatives who came to visit.

IMG_7459

Layout #5

This layout, made from my CKC kit, turned out bright and fun. It is a scraplift from a 2016, Becky Fleck Pagemaps.

The layout features photos of my grandson and his cousin using a bouncy castle at the Simmos Icecreamery. It is a very simple design, no mixed media, but I did try and focus on getting in some movement by using downward strips of paper and layering the photos on the diagonal.

IMG_7294

As you can see, all of these layouts still need the dates and journaling added. I am very bad at adding the journaling during the creating process and always end up making the journaling a process in itself, sitting at the computer with a whole stack of layouts and going through them one by one. I very rarely hand journal, as I have terrible handwriting.

Please do keep sharing what you create on the FB Counterfeit Challenge Website and blog? Make sure that you keep up to date with what others are creating on the Monthly Link Up page.

Keep on scrapping everyone 🙂

 

RTS & CKC Mar. 2019-Layouts #9 & #10

Hello and happy St Pats Day,

Today I am sharing the last two layouts I made using Janet Madison’s RTS 4 for 4 series unnamedtechnique. You can view all of Janet’s videos for the series on her YouTube channel, RTS (Record the Story) Scrapbooking. As usual, I made some changes along the way, something Janet promotes…there is no one way, make it your own!

You can see the collection of papers I started with on my last post, I chose very feminine papers from my March Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Using the 4 for 4 series you end up making 4 layouts using 5 patterned 12×12 pieces of paper cut to different sizes and then working on a cardstock background. The leftover scraps are used to make cards with, something which I haven’t tried yet. Years ago, when I first ventured into papercraft, cards were my main focus. I even sold them through several businesses, was commissioned to create them, taught classes on stamping and cardmaking, and had tutorials published. Now, I just can’t get enthusiastic about making cards, though I do ooh and aah over all the new stamp releases. However, I agree with Janet that we should all be making our own gift cards, we have the skills and loads of scraps to use up!

Layout #9 (for CKC, #3 for RTS-4 for 4)

For this layout, I selected a very light, shell pink cardstock for the background. You can see the patterned papers cut to Janet’s specified sizes, I used a mix of old and new papers. A lovely raspberry pink floral, a text (a recent purchase, Jilliebean – Reap the Grain) and a strip of mint, criss-cross kisses. The butterfly and flowers die cuts are from Tim Holtz’s idea-ology salvaged elements, and I chose a few tags to include from my stash.

I put the background together first. I had an issue with the text paper, it probably wouldn’t have bothered most people but I do suffer a little from perfectionism. If you read the text you can see that there are some words and quotes which don’t fit with my photo. My photo is a 4×4 of my daughter by herself and several parts of the text refer to more than one person…see how picky I am. There is the terms: You & Me, Family, and together. I couldn’t work with this and needed to find ways to cover up these terms. The first thing I did was add the mint criss-cross strip across the term ‘& Me’, it didn’t quite cover it all, so I add a strip of gold, glitter washi tape. Problem solved!

IMG_6426

Next, I needed to deal with the large words, ‘Family’and ‘together’, on the right-hand side. Fortunately, my photo would cover this area, but it did mean that the placement was different from Janet’s recommendation.

I then thought the photo needed to stand out more from the background and added a white cardstock border. I wanted to include my handmade gold frames in this layout and mounted them on some scrap pink checked paper. They would do a good job at covering up the text on the left of the layout, and be substituted for the absence of photos. Janet’s #3 layout uses 3 photos and I only had one.

IMG_6431

I had wanted to use the teal glitter Thickers from my CKC kit and thought I needed to get some teal colour on the page, as my papers did not include this colour. So, out came some distress ink and a cheap stencil. I focused on stencilling over the areas with the inappropriate (for me) text.

Next, I went to work adding the embellishments strategically placing them to cover up those annoying words. This took me quite a lot of time, I moved things around a lot and it just wasn’t working for me. I also stamped on some distress raspberry pink, little foliage images to try and pull it all together, around the clusters. A few tiny punched out red hearts and flowers were also added.

I’m not completely happy with the end result, but as Janet always tells us ‘the friends and family looking through the albums will not notice’. It is us that is far too critical of our own work. We need to learn to…let it be, let it be!

IMG_6471

 

Layout #10 (for CKC, #4 for RTS-4 for 4)

So, this layout starts out with me scanning and enlarging the photo I want to use. Like my previous layouts, it is an old photo of my daughter which was once framed and hung on our hallway wall. The papers used are the same as Layout #9, except for a little strip of the large flower print (used in Layouts 7 & 8). I chose a few tags and a daisy die cut from my CKC kit and decided to work on white cardstock so I could splash around some ink.

I pulled out my favourite oxide ink, Mustard Seed, it creates an amazing golden yellow, and I used the plastic bag technique, activating the ink with water, to create a vibrant background.

Next, I wanted to include some stencilling on the background, picking up a few of the colours form the ‘LOVE’ tag. I put a few washi tape strips along the base of the page and then got busy stencilling on some simple shaped flowers using a range of distress ink colours. They blended beautifully, creating an almost rainbow coloured effect. I also stencilled a strip of white cardstock to use for some embellishments.

Time to fussy cut out those flowers.

Now, I needed to create some frames from scraps to cover the rough edges and bits of white left around my trimmed down photo. As, previously, I used the old Creative Memories cutting system, it was a quick and easy option.

IMG_6454

Then, I mounted the photo and frames onto the layout using foam tape.

IMG_6458

Time to build up the layers of embellishments, both handmade (stamped & stencilled) and purchased. A mix of flowers, tags and enamel dots. Then some Thickers for the title.

The end result is a very, bright, colourful layout, a lot more intense than I envisaged. Another layout in the album, happy scrapping everyone.

RTS & CKC March 2019 – Layouts 3-6

Morning all,

I had a lovely day yesterday, the rain was slow and steady for most of the day, and I indulged myself watching my favourite scrap idols on YouTube and finishing off my challenge layouts. I enjoyed completing the Janet Madison,  RTS 4 for 4 layouts using some of my March Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit. I ended up with 6 layouts in total, as I didn’t make the cards. I used the scraps I had left to create two more layouts instead.

The first two layouts I made were quite simple using photos from my grandson’s fifth birthday party. I decided to finish off scrapping the other birthday event photos with the rest of the RTS 4 for 4 supplies.

Layout 3.(4for4 Series // Layout #3)

With layout 3,  I made a few changes to Janet’s original design. Something which Janet IMG_6217encourages in her videos, make it your own. I flipped how she had laid out the photos, putting two at the top and one photo at the bottom. The reason I did this was that my photos are of my grown, adult children and my husband going down the slides at the Little Monsters indoor fun park where the birthday party was celebrated. I wanted the last photo in the sequence to stand out and be noticed, where my husband nearly wipes out our youngest daughter!

All of us grownups, my children, myself, my husband and some of the parents attending the party had a fun and crazy time trying out the slides. We had been using them for about an hour before we noticed a sign at the top of the slides…No Adults on The Slides!

Oops! Did that stop us? Um, no, we were having way too much fun by then. I guess we regressed to our childhood and the manager did not stop us, well that’s our excuse.

IMG_6226

 

Layout 4. (4for4 Series // Layout #4)

One great thing I am finding with the RTS 4 for 4 series is that I am using up a lot of washi tape. I IMG_6230may finally get to the end of a roll. Layout four includes 4 photos, if you haven’t noticed, each of Janet’s layouts increases by one photo at a time.

For my layout, I used photo’s slightly larger (3×4) than Janet’s. It still worked fine but hid a bit more of the background papers.

I loved that this time I had a thin strip of rainbowed stripe paper to work from. The colours really work with my photos. Janet uses a few other materials for her horizontal strips, ribbon and paper strips, I stuck with my washi tape. Gotta use that stuff up!

You can see in Janet’s layout that she introduces some of the green, 5th paper sheet (check out her video for all the details). I had already eaten into my 5th sheet and had used it for matting photos, I had this odd shaped piece left. It wasn’t long enough to go across the page, so I cut it down into two strips and joined them together.

Once I have the background adhered to the cardstock, I lay out where I think everything else will go. When I’m happy with it I take a quick photo of it with my iPad before pulling it all off again. This helps me remember the layout placement and I get busy sticking everything into place.

The finished layout looks happy and bright, especially on that white cardstock, the colours pop!

IMG_6237

 

So, what do I have left? It is at this stage that Janet goes into a card making tutorial (4for4 Series // 4 Cards). Not being a card maker any longer, even though Janet makes some strong points on why we should be making our own, the cost of cards these days, etc., I decided to make some more layouts. Heres what I had left…

IMG_6240

and… of course, I had the rest of my March CKC kit to pull supplies from. I didn’t want to pull any other coloured pattern paper from the kit, but I had included some glitter cardstock to die cut some text/quotes with. Part of the CKC is that you forge, create some of your own embellishments, etc. For March, you needed to include some frames in the kit, something which I have a whole box of, but do you think I could find them to include them in my kit? Nope! This can be one of the downfalls of cleaning and sorting out your craft room, trying to find stuff. In my head, I can clearly see where the box used to sit on the shelf. Grrrr

Anyhow, I decided to make some frames using my gold glitter cardstock and some standard white cardstock. Like any dedicated artisan, I researched online for a DIY video and found a great one by Meg on her YouTube Litlle Hot Tamale channel.  The tutorial is called Diy Polaroid Embellishments – Build Your Stash #1.  Meg does a great job at sharing two different ways to make your own frames. I went with technique #2 but cut the frames with my Fiskars paper cutter and not scissors.

 

After cutting the frames, Meg shows you ways to decorate them. I loved the little fringed paper strips and thought that would work beautifully with my festive birthday photos.

IMG_6257

Layout 5.

So, layout five is made from the leftover scraps and features photos of my grandson going down the slide. The photos are not of great quality but they capture the excitement and energy of the moment. I cut the three top photos down to 3×3 and topped each with one of the homemade frames (adhered with foam tape).

 

IMG_6269

 

 

Layout 6.

This one is super simple, using up the scraps, some washi tape and a few scraps of white cardstock. I used the frame quote embellishment on this layout and a couple of the gold glitter square cutouts leftover from making the frames. I may embellish this further, it is a little too empty for my normally cluttered style. Janet would be asking where are the clusters? The visual triangle? It was late and I had lost my mojo.

IMG_6273

Next, I am going to have another go with Janet Madison’s, RTS 4 for 4 using up the rest of my March CKC kit. What I have left in my March CKC kit is a lot more pretty, flower prints, big and small and lots of pinks, yellow and soft greens. This RTS 4 for 4 will definitely be some girly layouts and I will try and get some mixed media happening on these layouts.

Happy Scrapping

Mix it up! RTS 4 for 4 & CKC March 2019

Hey everyone,

as some of you may already know, I am a big fan of RTS Scrapbooking. The amazing Janet Madison shares all her scrapbooking knowledge on her RTS Scrapbooking YouTube unnamedchannel. She is a wealth of knowledge and so generous with her time and skills. For a while, Janet has been making a series of videos called 4 for 4. The idea is that you use a set amount of papers (5), cut into a specified size, and then add in some alphas and embellishments to create 4 layouts and some cards. Janet talks you through the whole process step by step, through her videos. This month, I decided to give it a go. I hadn’t tried it out before, but have used similar systems to create mini albums (6×6 and 8×8) in the past. Using a system like this can really speed up your productivity and get a whole heap of layouts completed and into albums.

Layout 1.

First, you need to select your papers and cardstock, you need a selection of papers with a range of patterns. Janet talks you through this process and provides all the detailed instructions. She suggests the best patterns to use. I thought it would be fun to use my kit which I had put together for the March Counterfeit Kit Challenge.

A new Facebook group has recently been formed for the scrapbook fans of RTS. It is called love rts and you can access a PDF copy of the 4 for 4 instructions in the group. I printed this out and worked through the instructions while watching the RTS videos and scrapping my layouts.

Janet suggests selecting four alphas for your layout, two large and two small. I chose two glitter alphas to work in with the March CKC.

 

Also on the material list is washi tape, here is my selection. Once again I went with some glitz selecting three glitter washi tape and a gold metallic to link in with my CKC kit. Janet gives you lots of options to use instead of washi tape.

IMG_6184

Cutting up the papers is quite simple, though I would suggest that you watch Janet’s video a few times before starting. You do need to think about which direction you want your patterns to run, this is especially important if you use a paper which has text.

 

Next, I built up the background following Janet’s recommendations. I started with white cardstock and then changed my mind using green instead. I mounted my photo and begun adding the titles, something I usually do last.

I was short on embellishment in my CKC kit and decided to make some as it was the Forgery on the 4th challenge day. I used some stamps and ink I had included in my kit.

 

After adding the homemade embellishments, some enamel dots, washi tape and a few other bits and bobs, it was finished. Thanks, Janet 🙂

IMG_6207

Happy with the first ‘4 for 4’ RTS layout, I moved onto number two. Once again following Janet’s directions, watching her video and including some handmade embellishments.

Layout 2.

IMG_6213

Two more to go 🙂

I have enjoyed the process and may even use the 4 for 4 system with a different set of papers. A great way to get layouts completed quickly and as simply as you like. Janet encourages you to take the process and make it your own, perhaps I will add a little mixed media next time. The skies the limit…oh, the places you can go with Janet’s guidance!

D-Lish Scraps Feb. Challenge 2019

Good morning,

A quick show and tell today. Two layouts for two February challenges fromThe D-lish 51872921_10156787038486421_9045415925280407552_nScraps team. You can check out their new March inspiration and challenges on their blog and Facebook site.

The first I attempted asked you to add a heart to your layout. An easy enough task, I started with creating a background using a Kaisercraft stencil and some Tim Holtz ink.

I was using some old, cheeky photos of my daughter. I pulled out some patterned paper scraps in colours which matched my photos.

I trimmed down the papers, roughed up the edges and layered them onto the background. I wasn’t happy with how far the stencilling went and added some more on.

IMG_6055

A little bit of splatter was needed, out came the watercolour paints.

I was trying to use up some old embellishments and added a couple of vertical stripes to the layout, one sticker and one chipboard. The photos were mounted on cream cardstock.

Time to go old school with some foil embellishments. Anyone remember these?

Using up more old embellishments and some die cut letters for a title.

 

A few bits of ribbon and washi tape to finish it off. The finished layout is very happy and cheerful.

IMG_6090

The second challenge I attempted was to use a frame on your layout, something I haven’t done in a while. I have many old, frame embellishments to use up!

51949013_10156788513031421_6502307515202535424_o

It was a very quick layout, lots of layering but no mixed media! Once again, trying to use up some old supplies, rub ons. Does anyone buy these anymore?

I also included some newish embellishments, lovely blue and white paper flowers.

A simple, easy layout which turned out quite sweet.

IMG_6105

Happy scrapping everyone 🙂
