From This... to That... A Chinese Lantern layout

What to do with these flower wreath rings?

Graphic 45 "Bird Song" paper game me an idea...

from This... to That...  A Chinese lantern layout

Each Kimono holds a tag and the belt is a place to clip on a photo.
 Looking at the lower half and decided we needed some trim.
 Wa La - Much better :0)
 Adding the umbrella made this project a done deal.

PRIMA Build A Page (BAP) for May 2013 - "Spring 2013 - Explore, Discover, Adventure"

This is my Prima May BAP entry...  Isn't it funny that the layouts that you think are doomed to be blah, become a favorite!  This one uses the Prima Sasha line with Lindy's teal spray over a Crafter's Workshop stencil.  Lots of Prima goodies including a flower spray and butterflies from the paper line.  Loved layering each element with foam tape for a dimensional fun layout of my favorite baby!!!!!!!!!!

G45 layout contest entry - "Bloom and Grow Forever"

My favorite story as a child - my new favorite G45 paper line "The Secret Garden"!
I didn't have a paper tray so I made one with chip board and lined it with the paper.  It is so pretty I almost left it just like this...
But then I started adding more and more...
using Shimmerz and molding paste on the sides...

and cut-outs from the paper...
and adding lots of pretty doodads...  . I love taking ideas from the paper like the branch, bows, flowers and picket fence and making them dimensional...

... and done!  I could have kept adding and adding but decided it was time to stop and admire.
