My Turn to Share

Sorry I am a bit late. I have been flat on my back for the past couple of days with back muscle spasms and are totally over it! Have just got out of bed and come to work to post my layout today before returning home and back to bed. I love the two albums I received from “want 2 scrap” but didn’t want to make an album. I decided to use part of each of them on a layout and use the rest for other projects.
I love the chipboard cover with all it's fine detail. I inked one door piece with black ink and cut it in half. I used one piece in the top right and one piece in the bottom left corner of my layout. I covered the other piece of chipboard with the Magic of Oz “Goblin Gazette” after I had cut the border from it.

I used the Magic of Oz “Emerald City for the base of my page and adhered the border from Goblin Gazette.
This made a narrow frame for my layout. I needed to add some more colour to my page and used Halloween in Wonderland “curiouser and curiouser” as a square for my covered chipboard to sit on. I matted the curiouser and curiouser paper with black Bazzill and adhered it to the middle of my page. I then placed the black door pieces in the corners. I put more chipboard on the back of my covered chipboard shaped square to compensate for the door pieces. This also adds more dimension to my layout. I also received some flourish shapes which I inked with some pearliest inks to give them a shimmer. I added one at the top to hide the cut edge of the door. I added some brads to hide the hole in the door as well.
The other two I used down the bottom corner to create a feature on my layout.
I used a blossom branch and Desire flowers from Prima plus two flourishes from want 2 scrap..
I had the perfect photo of my daughter Anna for this page and I love her cheeky grin!
I like my layouts not to be too fussy and the photo to be the focus. I love colour and the wonderful range of Graphic 45 papers means there is lots to choose from and as the colours are so rich and beautiful and all go together it’s not hard to find the perfect paper every time.
