I just love these.........

Hi my friends,
Today I would like to share with you a layout I did for Scrapbook Boutique, and I was so happy to be able to have a play with the most adorable Glitz Design papers and Manor house flowers. Both available at Scrapbook Boutique. This is a photo of my gorgeous boy Jack, taken recently. ( yes, you can use flowers on 'boy' layouts lol )
Below, I have included a little step by step on how I made this layout, for anyone who is interested :) 

Products uses: Glitz design paper pack-walk in sunshine , Glitz design 'peek a boo', Prima brick stamp, Magnolia doo hickie die-Paris nights, EK sucess border punch-Diamond lace , Ingvilde Bolme distress tool  , Manor house creations flowers - Taneisha and Wishes.

1.Trim 5mm from each edge of ‘raindrops’ paper, distress and randomly stamp the Prima brick stamp as desired; adhere to reverse side of stripe paper.
2.Cut the perfume transparency in half (found in the ‘peek a boo’ pack) adhere to centre of the layout as shown. Trim a rectangle from Damask paper 23cm long x 10 cm wide, distress edges. Using the EK diamond lace punch, create 2 x 22 cm borders from white card. Create 2 x 22cm yellow strips from the Damask paper.  Layer rectangle, and border strips as shown, adhere to centre of  layout, over transparency.
3.Cut the frame transparency in half, tuck under each outside corner as shown.
4.Die cut the lamp post and cat from stripe reverse paper, adhere a piece of yellow damask paper to the underside of the lamp. Die cut a fence using white card, adhere with foam tape, and sit the cat on the fence.
5.Arrange your flowers and leaves as desired , add your title and a rub on sentiment to complete your layout. 

Thanks so much for calling in, and thanks for the constant support, and wonderful comments

Have a great week
