Basic Grey "Lily Kate" - very old - with a bit of fussy cutting

Oh there's a stamp there too - Autumn Leaves swirly thing

"Mine" letters are ancient too - um Making Memories I think - covered with the Basic Grey yellow paper

Cottage Roses from Prima - backed with the pretty German Scrap

Some trim from my stock

Glossy Accents on the blue dots at the bottom of the page

I Love Everyday With You!


This layout was actually in my "finished" pile ready to be put into an album. But when I picked it up it just looked really anaemic. I had originally wanted it quite plain and simple with just a herd of butterflies flowing across the page plus some lace and odd bits of punched borders and a title. But - like I said - on reflection "anaemic".

So I tucked two bits of black German Scrap between the layers and that seemed to "ground" the layout so then I added a flower - some Nic Howard leaves and some bits of ribbon - oh and some bling.

I haven't got a clue what anything is though - except that the butterflies were cut from some K& Company paper. I was really impressed though by how quickly the black German Scrap transformed that clustery-border business and attracted your eye to that area. I just love the GS - it adds dimension without bulk.
