MME - The Sweetest Thing

Hi there fellow scrappers, how is everyone today?

If you'd like to enter my giveaway, please go HERE


Today I'm sharing a layout using my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store - using My Minds Eye - The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine.

These papers are utterly gorgeous...and really, they don't need much work to make a layout look good!

My layout is for sketch # 225 over at Creative Scrappers


I've used Happy Sunny paper for my background & then pieces of Happy Woodsy, Hello Greetings, Hello Wishes & Together Chevron paper.

And this is the sketch ....that I have rotated 90 deg anti clockwise





In my cluster I've used one of the many new flower ranges to The Scrapbook Store - a 5cm Mulberry Paper Rose...plus a Manor House flower, Kaisercraft blooms, MME Sunshine Crochet Doily (that I cut up to get 2 pieces), a Lil' Red Rocket checkered button & paper doilies, some stamped leaves....and some 2crafty chipboard - Flower Spurts & Butterfly frame (a more detailed list, including links, is listed at the bottom of this post)


The techniques I've used on the chipboard was I first gave a couple of coats of gesso, then dabbed on some texture paste...once that was dry, I painted on some Oriental Poppy Glimmermist using a dabbing effect.

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by & check out my work.  My apologies that I haven't
been over to visit you all lately...I really don't know where my time is disappearing to!  But hopefully I'll find some time in the next few days to come visit!
Enjoy the rest of your day :)  xx
