I simply adore this photo of Erin, taken in 2006 in Mum and Dad's garden. She was such a poser that day - I have quite a few other shots I will scrap as the opposite page for our albums.
This layout began from a humble sketch (no.133) found on the fantastic Twisted Sketches blog. The twist was "Jewels" but I think I covered it with all the beads? Or perhaps the "jewellery'? LOL
And a close up of the cluster - I LOVE these gorgeous large flowers from My2Angels - they have the colour changing leaves and being white - I just used some distress ink with my applicator to apply some colour and then added diamond dust...
As an almost first time sewer on layouts - I remembered this tip I was told years ago - if you are sewing ribbon on your layouts - first attach it with some double sided tape and then sewing will be easier as you won't have to hold and reposition all the time!! The 3mm express it tape was perfect for this (it doesn't mess with your needle making it stick!) - especially as it was FREE with my first order for the year at My2Angels!!
