Birds in Forget me Nots


Eila presents her layout project that she calls 'New Spring Shoes'.
She is using Birds in Forget Me Nots P6303 with some beautiful flowers & embellishments. Love the pearl centres on the forget me nots - they really make the layout stand out. Also love the cut out butterflies. In fact, I love every bit of it.

This is what Eila says about her layout: 'The photo is not one of my own, I found it in our county photo archives. However, it could very well have been me standing there on a visit to town in the 1960's although this photo was taken in the 1950's.

Each spring mummy and I travelled into town to buy us both new spring shoes. For as long as I can remember, they were always brown and very sensible with shoe laces. My dad used to polish the shoes of our family on Sunday mornings before going to church. For him it was important that they didn't look scuffed. I don't think I have to say that the first pair of shoes that I bought with my own money were RED!

The new papers are a paper-and-scissor-girl's dream, so many gorgeous details one can cut out! I really love the stripey old-fashioned paper combined with the sweet forget-me-nots.'

And Eila, the stripey old-fashioned paper really loves you & the combination is gorgeous - well done!

The Forget Me Not Collection pf papers can be found at  Forget Me Not Collection

There are also some beautiful new fabric flowers, some new velvet leaves & gorgeous packs coordinated by colour - these are all under the 'What's New & Exciting' category 

Bye for now

    I also remember going to buy shoes, and it was very different from what it's like buying new shoes for my girls nowadays. I especially remember getting new tennis shoes every spring. It always made me feel so light, like I could fly....
