Hi Everyone!

I loved this week's kit with the fab papers and stickers from My Minds Eye and I knew straight away what photo I would use. It is one of my sister Tina on her wedding day, she was carrying a beautiful bouquet of yellow and red gerberas that were the perfect match to the papers.

I used the pretty glitter side of the 'Remember' paper as my base. I wanted to feature the bottom left corner detail for my title so cut around the edge of the red scroll so that I could tuck my photo underneath it (I cut from above the first 'L' in the title and right round to where the red scroll ends at the green glitter frame, just under the last 'L').


To mount the photo I used a variety of different papers and cardstock in different sizes:
1) 4.5" x 10" rectangle from the yellow side of the 'Love' paper
2) 6" x 2" strip from the flower side of the 'Love' paper
3) 3.5" x 2" strip from the flower side of the 'Love' paper
4) 6" x 2" strip from the red Bazzill cardstock
5) 6.5" x 2.5" strip from the red Bazzill cardstock
6) 6.5" x 1.5" strip from the red Bazzill cardstock

Use a border punch along the long edges of the 3 x red Bazzill pieces. Then layer up all of the patterned papers and cardstock onto the base using the photo below as a guide. I did add a piece of narrow yellow ribbon from my stash across the top and right edge of my photo but this was because I realised that my photo was not quite straight so was able to hide it!



I cut some large and small flowers from the red Bazzill cardstock and 'Love' paper using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die. The flower centres were punched from the flower side of the Love'  paper. All of these were then scunched up and lightly inked with brown ink before attaching two large and one small flower to the top left corner of the photo, with four small flowers attached to the bottom left corner of the layout. I then added a few of the My Minds Eye stickers to the bottom left and bottom right of the photo.


Finally I finished off by adding a title with an alpha from my stash.


This Kit is available for a limited time from here, do have a look at the monthly subscription   offer as this is a great way of saving money!

Thanks for looking!
