My Girl


I did a quick layout last night using Basic Grey’s Olivia Collection papers. I just love the greens and pinks of the papers, which were a perfect match for the colours in this photo of my DD.



I used my edge punches to create the borders for the horizontal strip behind the photo.



The Birds On A Wire one from Martha Stewart Crafts, I thought, was a fitting design as it matched the nature backdrop of the photo very nicely.



I then hand cut the flowers from the Emma paper and used them as embellishments for the layout, overlapping them and adhering them with 3D dots to add dimension to the design.



For a bit of contrast, I added this metal embellishment from Making Memories to complete the layout. I like its ornate-looking frame.



I managed to finish this layout in one night, so I’m quite pleased with myself for that. :)



Thanks for dropping by! :)
