On Saturday, Roberts Birthday, we went to Bluewater.
I had a appointment for a facial at the Elemis spa-room in John Lewis and once finished realised I'd forgotten my make-up. A lovely lady on the Bobbi Brown counter gave me a quick make-over so I was ready for our night out.
Following a lovely meal at Loch Fyne - fantastic seafood platter - we went along to the cinema where I had tickets in the gallery for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which inspired this layout.
I started with a plain piece of white bazzill and inked the edges.
A piece of bubble wrap was dabbed with Tim Holts distress ink pads in Milled Lavender and Faded jeans, the placed onto the white and pressed lightly. I then added splatters of Cosmic Shimmer and Tattered Angels glimmer mists.
Random strips of paper from the BG Kissing Booth collection were cut and inked then placed onto the cardstock. A recent app on my iphone for a photobooth made the perfect photograph for this layout, especially as we took it whilst waiting for the film!
I tied a thin piece of white organza ribbon around the strip, matted onto paper, then stuck it on at an angle. The journalling block was punched with a large scallop from another of the Kissing Booth papers, I chose this bit as it had "25" on it which was the correct date which I ringed with black pen.
A few flowers from my stash were added with pearl and jewel centres along with a spray of gems.
The title is stickers from the BG collection pack which I have edged with fineliner.
I love the way this alphabet came in three different styles.
The Birds are from the element sticker sheet, inked edges and mounted onto 3d foam pads.
I have been browsing many magazines and blogs lately and have used various techniques/ideas that I have seen. I cannot remember where/when so please let me know if the idea is/was yours and I'll gladly credit you.
As for the film????
I haven't laughed so much in a long time, it was absolutely fabulous and I would recommend everyone to see it - it's ageless (unless you are under 12 when you need to be accompanied by an adult!)
