LOC Bella Bronte

Hello everyone, I thought I would show you some scrapbooking I have been doing, this page was started at last month's Scrapbooking Crop so I thought I would actually post it before I head off there again tonight!

I am trying to get a layout done for each 'event' on our house - well, I was defnitely late with this one as it was for my DD2's birthday last month - as you can see by the photo!  I used my Layers of Color images and set out to create a page that is not 'girly girl!  The colours were determined by the gorgeous Basic Grey DP from my friend Melinda (aka Melinda80 on SCS) and the sepia photo.

I did use a bit of symbloism with the clock sticker I had and adding the Layer of Color Beloved Wings, symbolising 'time flying' and it certainly has - this girl is 4cm taller than me and I am fairly tall...it doesn't seem so long ago she was in her pretty little dresses and holding my hand everywhere we went - haven't seen her in a dress for years - apart from school uniform that is!!

I have used a combination of flowers, buttons and brads and added the gorgeous bird from the Layers of Color art stamp set 'Royal Birds' I have said it before, but this is my ABSOLUTE favourite LOC image - it is only small but makes a BIG difference - I would use it on every project, but exercise self control!  LOL! 

Of course it had to have some shimmer happening on those wings, as well as the crown from the Beloved Wings set - very fitting for the birthday girl!!

Just so you see what I battle with taking photos, I thought I would show you what happens when I try and get a photo with the layout on the ground - I get visitors - this one was the leader and five others followed along with our two dogs - what a household!! LOL!

I am linking this to the following Challenges;
Gorjuss Girls - Texture
Practical Scrappers - Glitter & Bling
Crafty Angels - Favourite Things - flowers & birds

Thank you looking, I appreciate your visits and the comments you always leave me - you are always so encouraging!  You can see my layouts and other projects over at Layers of Color, while you are there you might want to have a look at the other Designers albums - there is so much inspiration to be found there, you might want to 'put on your' seat belt' before you go! LOL!  God bless you!
