Scrapbooking Havens Guest Designer - The Story of Rinaldo

I am excited to be one of the Guest Designers over at Scrapbooking Haven this month

I was inspired by Amy's January Sketch and could not wait to play along with the February Challenge - it was the kick start I needed!

Amy sent me some gorgeous DP to play with divine lace, ribbon and flowers - yes I know, it is a tough job but someone has to do it! LOL!

My layout is a masculine one, so I was careful not to add too much lace and any flowers - but this is the only one - the other projects you will see during the month of February will be 'fully loaded!' LOL!

I have used Stampin' Up! Rubons and old vintage buttons from my stash

adding a border using the Layers of Color Belle Brocade art stencil

You can see some of the lace trim that is available at The Scrapbooking Haven, neatly tucked away behind the photo, I love the effect this has added and still stayed masculine!

Bold patterned paper is fun to create with - you can see the gorgeous range that Amy has at Scrapbooking Haven.

You can see one of my other layouts here - I am sure you will be inspired by the February Sketch while you are there!
