First Layout in a long time

Firstly, how excited was I a week past  Monday when I signed in to UK Scrappers and found out that Mary Anne had chosen my heart shaped wreath for one of the blog bits on the front page.

I had a lovely heart shaped piece of the card from the pizza box left over from the middle of this and decided - waste not want not so used it on a layout of my daughter when she was very young.  I am pleased with the way it has turned out.   I used My Minds Eye Pretty Please papers which was the very first kit I received from Cleo Crafts and the papers remain one of my favourites. I just love the colours and have replaced the papers as I have used them.  I used a pink paint dabber and tumbled glass distress ink on the cardboard and sewed a wee heart using a bazill in stitches template.  I painted one of the silk flowers with some pearly paint and made the tissue paper flower using some tissue paper I picked up in M & S last week.

Received  my very first monthly kit from Sandra at Gottacraft this weekend - Cosmo Cricket Delovely - am looking forward to getting this as the colours look so bright and zingy, just need to find the right photo to do it justice.
