I used glossy accents on the hearts of the tree to make them stand out and the Websters country bird to the ground with a small piece of Lily Bee patterned paper to make a little hill of flowers.
I thought that the sweetness and kindness labels from the crate labels added perfect sentiments to the page with the heart shaped blue pin and metallic heart and flower beads on tucked under the photo to embellish the page.
I inked the edge of the orange bazzil with white ink and the Lily Bee head over heels crush paper inked with brown ink as well as the white card stock inked with a brown edge, I just think it helped the layers to blend and I choose to position them angled to complement the crazy picture of me and my friend Chelsea. The title of the page is along the side strip of the page which looks super the crate alpha is just the right size and the blue colour draws your eyes to it. I used the brown maya road tickets to embellish the page as well as the cut out of the bird from the printed dolli and added the date.I did some handwritten journalling with blue and pink sparkly jelly roll pens underling and boxing some of the words to stand out.

I used lots of different rectangle blocks to brake up this layout into sections, the title for this layout came very naturally and I used both sets of alphas from crate paper random range.
I tied these cute little buttons and sliver key with the green ribbon from the neted bag in the embellishment pack to tie in different ways. also added the true love lasts a life time sentiment and the amour scallop circle from the hybrids sheet and stamped birds in the corner... cute.
I used a different technique for this layout with my tattered angel glimmer screen I copied the pattern with a pencil and then used some Jenni Bowlin ranger no.8 acrylic paint in soap powder with a paint brush then just as the paint was drying I added some blue glitter to the paint so it just caught the wet edges of the paint.

So I created this layout using Crate paper Random Denim as a Base then cut a strip of Lily Bee Memorandum office blue and a strip of Lily Bee head over heels crush which I used my Fiskars border punch to make a little scallop detail along the edge I also used the Branding strip from the Crate paper denim paper as I really loved the detail and its was a waist not to use it :-)
I embellished my page with the button mix threaded with the Sew easy floss in aqua from a previous kit and I made a bow with the Websters scallop ribbon and fastened with one of the blue pins and added some of the yummy hybrids..... perfect!!!

These Element stickers from Eco Park- For the record really tied in nicely with the feel of this layout specially the sticker saying list... I normally hand write my journalling as I find it more personal however there was no way I would be able to fit this all in on my layout and as the journallying was the main focus of this layout I decided to type this out as. I had been reflecting on my life after reading 100 things to do before I die and I realized that I had actually achieved a lot all ready and added on some of my own achievements to the list. I just love these Brads from My Minds Eye Lost & Found collection which were in my January back to basics kit from Scrapagogo.... Lush

I found this amazing border sticker to separate the smaller pictures from the large picture which I found in my stash from Eco Park Life is good collection. I added some Cath Kiddston Badges which I brought in the Cath Kiddston shop in London to embellish this layout. as well as some labels form My Minds Eye to add the date to the layout.

This second layout I used some very embarrassing pictures of us all singing on the dance floor after a drink or too... I also had Mc Hammer cant touch this played which I LOVE!!!!
I used some Christmas rub ons I had in my kit to embellish the photographs.
These Christmas trees were cut out of some patterned papers and layered on to 3D foam pads.

This first layout is a photo of me, Lauren and Claire in our lovely ball gowns and masks we all had such a good evening.I created this layout with Cosmo Cricket Lavender Bling chipboard alphabet.
With Black Bazzill card stock and a selection of Pinkpaislee patterned paper from my Scrapagogo November kit- Chic Boutique. I Layered up some very yummy Pinkpaislee Vintage Vogue paper tags. i really liked the Dr.Miracles 100% beauty cream tag and I also used a Prima Vintage Trinket to add a bit of bling to the corner of the photo.
This next layout was of just me and Lauren doing what best friends do ... posing :-) I added lots of girly elements to these layouts and really picked up on the colours of our dresses black and purple and our masks with gold sparkles.
I created the layout with a selection of pinkpaislee patterned paper cut into strips. I used the stamp from the scrapagogo kit with white ink and made a black lace bow and used a pearl pin to fasten the bow.
I used the black Tickers alphabet to create the title for this layout.... perfect.

Me and my beautiful fiancée were lucky enough to visit Rhodes this year we went for one weeks chill out in the sunshine and it was very hot, I had a lovely time relaxing by the pool or on the beach. These pictures were taken on the one day we decided to visit Rhodes town and we were able to visit inside Rhodes town castle the gardens were amazing and the harbour was very picturesque :-)
I scrap lifted the idea for this layout from Maggie Holmes published layout in Creating Keepsakes scrapbooking Holidays and Celebrations 2011 magazine. It was perfectly suited for my holiday pictures and I adapted the layout with my materials in my kitO
I just love the button and flag washing lines I created using aqua thread and vibrant coloured buttons from my stash.
