Back with another layout from this week's Being Scrappy Kit. We had the yummy 'Dear Lizzy - 5th & Frolic' papers and a Thickers glittery Alpha by American Crafts to create with! I dug deep for my photos this week, they go back quite a few years to when my friend Kerrie's kids were still little (they turn 16 this year!).
I used the spotty 'Simplicity Circle' as the base for my layout, then cut a 6.5" x 9.25" piece of the raspberry Bazzill and tore the bottom off in a diagonal. Attach this to the left side of the layout and then stick down a 5.25" x 6" piece of the 'Memory Lane' paper just over the raspberry Bazzill. Cut an 11" x 1,25" strip of the triangle 'Cartwheel Court' paper and stick down towards the bottom of the 'Memory Lane' paper. Add one of the manufacturer's strips cut to 10.25" just under the larger strip. Punch a border in a 11" strip of the green Bazzill and stick this down over the top edge of the large strip.
Cut a 4.75" circle from the pink 'Memory Lane' paper, distress the edges and attach. Mount three photos onto the green Bazzill leaving just a thin border. My photo sizes are: 3.5" x 2.5" and 4" x 3.5". Sticl down onto the layout.
Add your embellishments... I punched different size circles from the patterned papers and Bazzill and layered these up above and below the photos, so they look like bubbles! Add some large gems and dots from the glittery Thickers Alpha.
Make a flower from layered strips of the pretty ribbon that comes with the Kit. Attach to the layout and add a layered paper centre and large gem.
Make a banner for the top right corner, using the green Bazzill, small pieces of ribbon, punched circles, large gems and twine.
Finish off with a title using my favourite Thickers (this comes with the Kit!).
