My Girls

Hi!  Here is a layout I made using one of my favorite pictures of my girls.  I used DCWV Doodling Around papers - I love the colors!  I wanted to make the layout work with the flowers going up the side of the paper without covering them up.  I used seam binding dyed with Fired Brick Distress Ink for the bow.  The little flower on it is from the George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge - 4 layers cut at 3/4".  The red shape in the background is from Winter Woodland at 6" - I also used that shape for the title.  I used my Gypsy to weld the shadow for 'my' to the shape, I did squish the shape to it wouldn't be as tall.  My is cut from Cursive 101 at 1" and Girls is cut from Opposites Attract, also at 1".  The flower on the title is cut from Flower Shop - it's the ruffled flower - cut at 2 1/4".  I totally love this rolled flower and it is fairly low profile so it works well for scrapbook pages.  I used an EK Success border punch on the brown strip behind the pictures and added a little bling to both of the flowers.

Here is a close-up of the seam binding bow and flower made from George cuts.

Here is the rolled flower from Flower Shop

Another angle - I love this cut!
