LOC Water Boy/ Beautiful Girl Layouts

Scrapbooking is something I have come to love - very quickly - combining it with Layers of Colour is just a sheer pleasure and has made Scrapbooking such a fabulous journey for me.  To be able to capture moments for my children, sharing my thoughts and heart (on the back of the layout) is a legacy I am wanting to give them!

I am honoured to be asked to teach a Scrapbooking Class at my local Craft Shop Scrap n Stuff - you cam imagine my delight when Websters Pages arrived on their shelves...and disappeared as quickly - a number of pages into my ready and willing hands!!

This layout is of my DS when he was little is the first Class I will be teaching - he loved water and was delighted to discover this gorgeous water feature on a holiday in Sydney.

I have added a butterfly from the Layers of Color Butterfly Collector art stamp set, layering it onto some flowers, adding some 3D Kindy Glitz and finishing off with a pearl!

I have stamped images from the Regal Wings and Royal Birds art stamp sets randomly onto the DP and added some delish vintage lace.

The next layout is of my DD2 and although she does not like this photo - it is a favourite of mine. 

The delish flowers are from some RAKs, along with some more of the devine vintage lace.

The Tim Holtz Flourish goes hand in hand with the flowers and the added charm is from my friend Gunn.  I have also use some butterflies from the Butterfly Collector art stamp set, I will be adding a photos of them when I have taken some new ones.

I have matched the outline of the DP with the Spellbinders Labels 16 Nestibilitie using my Grand Calibur - the crisp clean lines are wonderful!  These have been embossed with the Textiles Embossing Folder - I love the texture that embossing adds!

You can see more of my projects in my Layers of Color Gallery, while you are there make sure you check out the other Design Team galleries there is so much inspiration waiting to be discovered, we are thrilled that Layers of Color is a Spellbinders Preferred Product Partner.
