Hello Friends!!

I'm back with a fun bright layout which is super quick to do (with a little preparation).

I loved the bright pink cardstock and I had a photograph that I had been meaning to scrap for a while. I was wearing a pink t-shirt and it went perfectly with the cardstock (don't you just love it when that happens!)

So, preparation is the key with this one. I loved the Belle paper from Maggie Holmes carousel from the Main kit and it just has to be fussy cut. This makes the paper stretch so much further and you can create multiple layouts with it then.

I sat for about an hour (trust me, its worth the patience) and fussy cut these out. How pretty are they!

I lined these up all along the bottom edge of the cardstock and overlapped them so there were no pink gaps showing through. I then backed my photo on white cardstock and added a doily behind. I then used some of the chipboard from the lite kit and added the amazing "today" perspextive from Bramble Fox which can be found as an extra in the shop.

The layout needed some interest so I created another cluster to the top right of the layout using the fussy cut flowers. To this I added a chipboard label for the date and a Pretty Little Studios label to add a little bit of journalling (to be added still).

And finally the title. I used the Freckled Fawn puffy alpha stickers to title my layout "Chilling". And its finished. So I used in total roughly half a sheet of patterned paper and a few embellishments. When you use a coloured cardstock background, especially a bright one, this really helps you to stretch your kit!!

See you again really soon!!
