The Scrapbook Garden - Doting Grandma

This is my 2nd layout for this design kit for the Scrapbook Garden.

Once again I used some papers from the Basic Grey
Sweet Threads paper pack .  Its a lovely pack and the papers are fab.

I used some Dotted Swiss 12 x 12 as a base.
You can find a range of colours in this paper here
Its great quality and lovely to work with.
I added 2 sheets of 6x6 paper from the pack
in opposite corners, Next
I used a stencil and some Distress ink
to make a vase on my page .
My Grandmother loved flowers so this was perfect for her.
As the picture showed her sitting in a chair with 2 of her grandchildren (my cousins)
and 2 of her Great grandchildren (my sons) I added a sticker form my stash
of an old fashioned chair.
Next I added some of these gorgeous hydrangea petals and
leaves to the vase using some Glossy Accents.
The petals are just accented by a touch of glitter which gives them a great sparkle.
They have the most beautiful little pearl centres and they are a brilliant quality.
I added my title 'Doting Grandma' which she very much was
and some journaling , I used a die cut shape beneath
the journaling to make it look as though it was on
a little stand.
And thats my page, It was quick and easy to do
and the papers from the paper pack matched well with the picture.
Theres lots of scope with these papers they have so many colours in them they would
match with lots of other colour ranges.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for leaving a comment it really is much appriciated
