Mum (Erin) and daughter (Sofia)

Another beautiful photo Erin sent me and again Sofia making a 2 yr old fashion statement love it.

Spent a day scrapping with some new scrapping friends who have different styles to myself and always love to see new techniques so this layout isn't like anything they did but what they were doing gave me ideas to create similar in my own way, the strips of background paper instead of a matted photo being one of those things.

Kept pretty neutral with the colours due to the almost sepia tones of the photo.  Used a Prima 'stitch' stamp around the edges and a Martha Stewart stamp randomly then inked edges.  Chipboard bird cage from stash and butterfly and bird were from an old piece of DCWV paper, made me realise why I keep my old papers lol….any excuse for my huge stash.  Chipboard elements are from G45 and stencil used at bottom right was from a cheap discount store yet its one of my fans and also has an adhesive backing so no leaks under the stencil just love it, used Golden modelling paste with it and then coloured over the top with lemon Pan Pastels.  Other additions for a pop of colour were some wash tape.

gorgeous creation Lesley, just gorgeous. It's been lovely getting together with you and I love being able to see you create too (and bouncing ideas of each other always makes for more creative inspiration).
Have a wonderful time away
