HELLO everyone my turn today over at 

My first DT layout today is 
which is unusual for me, but I really had fun with it. 
I find it good for my soul to go beyond my comfort zone
 and splash out with something different .

I snapped This pic  of Ella Jai last Xmas while she was captivated
and absorbed  in one of her presents .

I wanted to create a bright and happy page
 to embrace the beautiful  memories .
I just adore these Cherry blossoms, 
and the splashes of hot pink  look so divine with the rich orange roses. 

My handy tip
I pulled some of the orange ROSES  apart to make them look a little like daisies
 and secured them to the page by adding a pink brad in the centre .
Looking closely you will see there are some fully formed orange roses
 mixed with the separated ones I really enjoyed this process..

 GREEN TARA materials used
Pink Cherry blossoms 3cm FLC22P
Orange Roses small 1cm FDR00I0

other items  used
card stock, Basic grey, Bo Bunny papers
Die Cut – Memory Box, Brads – Bella, Washi Tape, Prima stamp – Trellis,
 Tim Holtz stainGesso, Crafters workshop mask, Imaginarium design Chipboard. 

my next layout is DEEP AND RICH .

 Such beautiful memories connected with this photo . We were celebrating Ella Jai’s  5th Birthday at the Farm Barn in the Adelaide Hills . Lots of fun was had by all, holding and feeding the animals and then a massive party with delicious food and a huge pink birthday cake .. Ella had the best time !!
  I feel  by combining the beautiful Green Tara blooms with fussy cut leaves and flowers

 creates perfect texture and delight..
 I clustered  the roses and rose buds together, 
hugging the photo amongst the diecut leaves..
here I decided to separate the med size rose petals 
and place them  in a cluster at the bottom of the layout .
 Securing them in place with small pink brads .
