My first layout for the year! These papers from Graphic 45's Once Upon A Springtime collection are just gorgeous! I love the shades of greens and pinks, and found these lovely flowers and trims from Prima to complement them.

I raised the frame of the layout using pop-up dots, and lined the inner portion of the layout with muslin cloth for texture.

I always like to have lots of texture in my layouts, so I added even more texture by distressing the papers and adding some laces, trims, vines and blings to the layout.

And dimension is provided by the use of more pop-up dots for the photo, "post card" cut-out, and journaling tag.

Thanks so much dropping by! :)
