11 Months

This is my first February layout for Mon Scrapbook, using the "Cupid" collection from Pink Paislee. I love the colours in these papers. Although they are intended as a Valentines collection, I think they work well for other themes, and are just perfect for pictures of little girls!

I added some stitching with embroidery floss. I used one of the templates from "The Crafter's Workshop" to create the flourishes. So much easier than drawing by hand.

The roses on this page are made from some of my scraps from the layout. A flower punch, a little ink, and some folding & rolling are all it takes. Voilà - flowers perfectly matched to your project!
