Lay it out

I've had a productive few days, and have 4 layouts for you today. The first one is of DGD2 AKA Estie. She never stays still long enough to get a decent pose, so I decided to scrap her in her silly positions.

 As you can see, she never stops moving. This layout didn't really come out anyhing like I imagined it. With so many pictures I toyed with the idea of a double layout, but I don't really go for those, so I did this instead. The background is pale pink cs, and the pp is from thebasic grey little black dress collection as are the chipboard embellies. The gems are Prima flower centres and the trim is Websters Pages. I drew some faux stitching around the pictures, pps and embellishments. I added a stamped bloom in each corner and some pink bling to finish.
 The Alphas are American Craft DIY Thickers. I glittered them and added some more pink bling

This next layout is of Sarah. She's kneeling on the wall in my garden. I used  Websters Pages Girl Land for this LO. I cut the pp around a shaped cardstock and then cut out the middle to make a frame, The picture is matted and then I used some of the trim to frame the matte.
 The blooms are a mix of Prima and Petaloo, white flowers which I inked and misted to achieve my desired shade. The leaves are also Prima.
 I added some bling to the centre of my blooms to give them some sparkle
These little knots were made from tiny remnants of ribbon that I could never bring myself to throw out, and I finally found a use for them

These little butterfly buttons and the green crochet brads seen above are from the Bo Bunny Little Miss collection. I absolutely adore Bo Bunny and have almost all of their coleections. I really need to scrap loads to justify all those purchases.

The layout above shows Sarah and Lazer feeling on top of the world. I used the Bo Bunny weekend market collection. I wonder who comes up with all the names for the collections. I mean why Weekend Market? Anyway, I digress. I cut the world shape from one of the pp's and added some blue  trim from my ribbon collection. Some noteworthy, dimensional stickers, trinkets and more bling finish off this one. The inking on the background cardstock is not ink at all, but chocolate which someone who shall remain nameless dripped onto my work when they knew full well that eating is forbidden in the craft room. Good job the brown blended in, so a bit of spray mist and a paper towel made this look deliberate.

This last layout which I have for you today is of my DGD1 AKA Tzivi. Contrary to her little sister, Tzivi loves posin for the camera. Here she is lying in the very messy grass in my back garden.

I used the Butterfly Garden collection from Pink Paislee. I kept this LO very simple as I wanted the focus on the flowers and leaves. They were created using the Rose Creations die from Spellbinders. I shaped the flowers and leaves with a ball tool thingy whose proper name I don't know, added some stamens and bling. I know I'm very into bling at the moment. Gems seem to go on all my projects lately. I left the chipboard butterfly bare, but added some diamond stickles to it as well as to my blooms and leaves. The title is American Craft Thickers. Thanks so much for joining me again and I hope to be back in a few days.
