Beautiful by Brenda Caldow

Welcome to Meg's Garden, I would like to share with you my first post for 2017 using the very beautiful Parisian Gardens patterned papers. I hope that your Christmas and New Season have been filled with love and joy and that each and everyone of you have had the safest of festive seasons. 

Now for my page....Each time I think Meg has come up with the most beautiful and perfect paper range she brings to us another. Such beautiful papers and embellishments are in store and ready to be shipped. Much more than just what I have to show you today. 

This is the sheet I chose to use on my page.

Now for my page of my sweet friend Malissa who is as beautiful as these papers.

I created the page on black Cardstock and started by spraying the page with Tim Holtz air brush and Distress Markers. I then sat the cardstock aside and I fussy cut the purple rose, butterfly, lady/clock and tag from the papers. I also mounted the photo on the same patterned paper. 

It was then time to chose my embellishments and start to put my page together. 

The lace is Antique Cream Nylon Lace and it is so beautiful. It also comes in a stunning soft pink as well but I loved the cream. I used the filigree long oval vintage trinket with the stunning large brass bee and the butterfly in filigree.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my page and please keep scrolling down and having a look at the other stunning creations from the design team. Also please call to the store for any of the beautiful papers or products we use. There are always new things coming in and I know you will love them. 

Please keep calling back because the Design Team have so much more to show you.  
Happy crafting and I hope 2017 is a wonderful loved filled year for you and all your loved ones.
