DESIGNING FOR PAPER STORIES

I am guest designer over at 
this month
Georgia sent me some yummy 7 Gypsies Antiquaries Postale Range of  papers 

here is what I did with the papers and embellies .
I decided to create a design and have both a dark and light background 
with the same design, just to show the versatility of these papers .
the photo I used of Ella Jai is quite special
It was the very first photo I took with my first Canon Digital SLR camera back in 2006
we were celebrating Ella's 3rd birthday . 

'TIME' 
'LOVE'

 handmade tags from cardboard.

 light background
 black background 


thanks for dropping by everyone 
hope you are enjoying the glorious spring days 
take care and big hugz to you all 
love Heather x

  8. Both LOs are just lovely, and such a gorgeous photo of Ella Jay! It's hard to decide which one I like best but I do think my favourite is the one with the dark background. Great use of those papers though in both of them!

  22. Oh wow, that photo is just sensational. She is just beautiful and you have captured a very special moment. I would love to know what she was thinking.
    Now on to your pages. Well I was in love with the black background because I love black backgrounds but then the lighter background is just too delicious too, so now I don't know. I just think they are both amazing and again, it is all of the details and your style that makes them so unbelievable. x
