Beautiful - Meg's Garden


Hi! I'm sharing a layout that I created with the stunning NEW Forgotten Meadows collection for Meg's Garden today. I took this photo of my daughter last Easter and it is one of my favorites. It is hard to believe that she was only 5 years old when this photo was taken. She looks so grown up!


I love the hanging purple blooms that run along the top edge of the Wisteria Shade patterned paper. I laid the coordinating 4x12" strip along the bottom of the page to create a similar wisteria border along the bottom edge of the layout. I used a stencil with whipped spackle on the center of the page to help hide the seam.


I created a lace border for my photo by cutting the edge of a Paper Lace Doily and piecing it together to size. I attached Antique Champagne Tassels to the corners for some added flair. I cut images from the Forgotten Meadows Cut and Create patterned paper and layered them under and on top of my photo. I topped the die-cut flowers with an Aubergine and White Apple Blossom. I added a bit of bling to the photo, embellishing the strap of my daughter's dress (much to her delight), with a piece of Square Silver Diamante Trim.


I added more cuts from the Forgotten Meadows Cut and Create patterned paper on the right side of my photo. I filled in the flower cluster with some Velvet Leaves and Purple Metallic Ribbon.

 Thanks for stopping by today!
