Guest Designer from USA

Our Guest Designer today  is Dana - she comes to us via C'est Magnifique Kits in Texas where she purchased her papers.

Dana says:
' "Sweetheart" Design Notes: The cherubs and flowers on this sheet of White Rose (3372) from The Antoinette Collection were just perfect for this sweet photo of my niece.  The coordinating piece of White Rose A4 paper (3372A) was great for fussy cuts! I cut the banner from the A4 sheet as well as the small flowers that I added to the rhinestone flourishes. I love the red flourishes that are printed along the edge of this paper and mimicked the flourish design on a piece of chipboard with some stamps. I also added more of the small flowers that I fussy cut from the A4 sheet of paper.  I used a sketch by Nadia Cannizzo for the design of this layout.

"Skylark" Design Notes:  I love the soft flowers and floral designs that are present in the Le Belle Jardin Collection!  I used a piece of the French Bird Cage patterned paper (P6297) for the base of this layout.  I used the coordinating French Bird Cage A4 sheet (P6297A) and the A4 sheet Collage Cartouche (3402A) from The French Garden Collection for the layers under the photo as well as the flowers and leaves that drape the side of the photo and embellish the birdcage.  My daughter loves to sing.  That fact, along with the birdcage on the paper, helped to inspire the title of this layout. I used some of the lyrics from the song "Skylark" for my journaling which reads, "My heart is riding on your wings." '

Beautiful layouts Dana - the flowers & accessories really complement the papers.
Well done

Bye for now
