Decidedly Not Camera Shy


Here is another DT layout that I created for Mon Scrapbook with the "Cupid" collection from Pink Paislee. I love the soft colours in this, combined with chocolate brown.

(Yes - you may have seen these photos before. I wanted to scrap them again for my mother, because I knew she would love them. Hi Mom!)

I wanted a different kind of flower for this page, so I made one using some scraps, and one of the "Cupid" brads. The paper was scrunched and rolled to get this look.


I felt the edges needed a little more definition here, and I wanted the look of stitches. Even though I sew, I rarely use the sewing machine on my pages. I find it so much faster to use a pen and doodle stitches on the paper.
