Amazing

My boy is really an amazing person - kind and funny, impulsive and thoughtful, moody and secure - all at once. I am sure he will grow up to be someone special.


This layout is made for the June BAP at Prima's blog. I have used the Fairy Belle collection along with blooms and other stuff.

For Glitz in June

Hi everybody! Today I want to focus on my dear husband and how special he is. This is my layout about how much I love him. The Happy Travels collection has such gorgeous colours - blue, red and beige. I added a somewhat romantic look by adding the flowers and doilies.


"Love" by Camilla Ekman:

Glitz Happy Travels Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Happy Travels Journaling
Other: Flower, alpha and bling lace (Prima), vine (Petaloo), swirl die (Cheery Lynn Designs), border die (Martha Stewart), doilies

The next layout is also made from the Happy Travels collection. I really love the patterns and wanted to add them to a page in squares. The punched white border frames the squares. I love this picture of my children playing with one of their younger cousins. Happiness!

"Marie" for C'est Magnifique

I decided to make a soft and pretty page about my older sister. To create some texture to the background paper, I used a mask and added some texture paste on top of it. To add just a little bit of colour I used the soft green and blue details. The lamp post stamp is bought from the C'est Magnifique store. I just love it!

Wishes

Popping in to share a new layout with you. I have two new border punches that I have used here. And then I pulled out the gorgeous brick mask to make the background a bit more exciting.

"Finast" for C'est Magnifique

I just love photos where people are unaware of the photographer. This is my lovely daughter. The blooms from the add-on kit are so beautiful. Since I didn't wanted to add to many different colours to the layout, I turned the tags around to face backwards. Doilies are so fun to use and I just love that Leslie added some squared doilies - so different.

"Bus" for C'est Magnifique

My children are blessed to have younger cousins. Their cousins look up to them and want to be like them. That makes my children very aware of what they do and say. They give and receive lots of love. This is my daughter and one of her younger cousins on her back. I've used a lot of flowers on this layout - both cool ones and ones that are more romantic. I really love this mix.
