Merly Impressions held a 10 hour crop last Saturday and I was lucky to be able to go along.
The kit was made using the beautiful Secret Garden Kaisercraft collection and this is my version of the first page.
Chrissy's original has lots of fussy cutting which is absolutely stunning but I am really not patient enough to do this so, as always, I flew solo and created these flowers instead,
I used the Sheena Douglass Rose stamp set, watercolour card and Tim Holtz Distress pens.
I also added a sheet of seafoam Kaisercard and die cut the stems behind and dotted them with a white gel pen. The flowers have stickles and Kaisercraft gems in too,
The leaves are also from the stamp set.
My sentiment was from one of the cut off strips and fit my photo perfectly.
We were having a chocoholic afternoon tea at the Hilton Park Lane courtesy of my daughter who bought it for me as a birthday present last November.
It was on Valentine's day this year.
Chrissy's kit makes 3 layouts all of which are stunning - check them out here where you can also purchase the very generous kit!
Thanks Chrissy, Paul and Merley for a wonderful day.
