About time too!

I have had these beautiful photographs of my great-nephew since he was born @ 18 months ago.
I have tried to scrap them many times but never found the right papers.
However, whilst on our retreat at the weekend I was playing the the Marjolaine paper pack (available at Cardinal Colours) and made the following.

I will add the journalling later on.
The jewelled image was from Cardinal Colours too.
The base page on this was made with a doily and Cosmic Shimmer mists - thanks Anita :)

This is how it looks as a double

The ribbon technique below was used by Karen at the weekend and was so pretty that I decided to use it here. The words are from a new stamp set I recently purchased by Hero Arts.
Thanks Karen too :)

Please excuse my strategically placed daisies, they are to disguise the identity.

It was quite funny really as I made 6 layouts and a mini album - some I have to wait to share - and four of the six were made from the same paper pack! Think I may be buying another one soon. :)

Thanks for looking x
