Hello everyone and welcome back,
 I hope you and your family are all keeping safe during this very scary time for all of us all.
I created this layout for a challenge on my shops inspirational page The Confetti Box Gallery. 
 I decided that as so many crafters were isolating in their homes and starting to get a little cabin fever, I would create a gorgeous mood board for everyone to play along with and have a chance to win some prizes. Feel free to take a peek and join in.
In this layout I have used papers from Scrapboys and 49&Market. All the fussy cut pieces are from Scrapboys gorgeous Victorian Home range, I just love the butterflies form this range. Ive used Celebr8 wooden title and heart cluster and the clock  is from 2Crafty.
Flowers and the bubbles are form 49&Market. The little heart strips are from the strip on the bottom of the paper that has the makers bar code on it. I always check them out to see if there are any images that I may be able to use.
All the chippy and wood pieces were coloured with Finnabair's Wax in Vintage Gold.

I love You

Hello everyone and I do hope that this post find you all happy and well at this very scary time we are all living in.
Thinking of all the things that are precious to us all at the moment was why I wanted to share this older but one of my all time favourite layouts. This is my Mum and my Aunty many many years ago at a work function.
 For this one I have used a couple of different ranges for the papers from 49&Market and Kaisercraft.
I struggled with the flowers getting the colours just right so rather than stressing over colour, I have used Nuvo Embossing Mousse "Old Navy"and a water brush and coloured them to suit. The chipboard frame, flourishes and title from 2Crafty were coloured the same way. I just love the metallic finish to these gorgeous waxes. Some of the flowers I left in the white colour for a little contrast.
 Finishing touches are the clocks that I fussy cut out and added to the layers, string bows, filigree doilies, some die cut leaves and fussy cut flower clusters.

thanks for stopping by
till next time
stay safe
