Spellbinders Love this Girl Tutorial

Hello friends - it is always fun to share a Spellbinders Tutorial and this week I am sharing a layout I created with a couple of fun photos taken with my eldest daughter and I on a family outing - she is spontaneous with the camera - and I love what they captured.

I love the diversity that Spellbinders Dies have - my usual style is shabby/vintage with a romantic flair but with this layout, I wanted it to suit my daughters style - simple but stylish - no fuss but definitely pretty!
