"Scooby Loving Girl"
By Linda Thompson

My 5yr daughter is Scooby mad and to make matters worse they only make Scooby boys clothes and toys, so she has been collecting the soft teddies. It was a little confronting to add flowers and ribbons to a somewhat Halloween page but overall I'm happy with the end result as is my daughter who carried the page around for a day lol.
Products Used
String in black - To create the spiders web and spider.
Skeleton leaves in silver - I scrunched these up in my hands to give a warn look.
Gardenias in black - These have been sprayed with a silver glitter Glimmer Mist.
Copper leaves in small
Natural Jute ribbon
Organza Splatter ribbon in blue - Due to having a wire edge it was easy to create a crease in the ribbon to give it a ruffled look.
Organza Stripe in black - Used to create the ribbon flower, pull the wire out of one side of the ribbon completely then with the remaining wire bend one end over so it can't pull thru. Start to pull on the other end of the wire while pushing the ribbon down the wire so that the ribbon begins to gather, once you have it completely gathered you can cut off the excess wire and bend the two ends of the wires together to create a rosette flower.

Thanks for stopping by. Linda T.

[Sweet as] Sugar by Mistra Hoolahan

Hi everyone... today I have a layout of our baby girl... well my son Kellan's bubby girl, but we all adore her! She's the newest addition to our family and as all new babies, she insists on all the attention.

All of the wonderful natural tones that Green Tara goodies offer were perfect for our Sugar girl!!

Some delicate fringed ribbon meandering across the page, frilled gingham ribbon tucked in under torn edges...

Banana leaf paper was scrunched up and placed under the photo matt to create a soft layer...

A cluster of Green Tara Roses, one of the 1cm ones was sprayed with Smooch Spritz to change the colour...

The Coloured Jute Ribbon ties into a bow beautifully, soft enough to get just the right shape, but firm enough to hold its shape once there...

The middle flower above was made from 5 of the white petals, sprayed with water, touched with stains and then scrunched up, unraveled and the layers glued together to form a full flower...

Until next time, take care of you...

"Enjoy the Moments" by Vicky Alberto

Hello everyone, here is another layout I have done recently. This one features yours truly. The papers are Bo Bunny (Timepiece Collection) and I used a few Dusty Attic chipboard pieces as well. I made the pretty flowers by simply layering some white Green Tara flower petals and a bit of lace, then added some bling on top. I inked the edges of the flowers too.
Journaling on the back reads: "This is me 3 years ago, the last time I didn't mind being photographed. As the years go by it is inevitable that more lines start appearing on our faces. I'd like to say that I have more laugh lines now... but the truth is the frown lines seem to be more prominent. My motto for 2012 is more laugh lines, less frown lines. This means some changes in my lifestyle will need to occur. I don't do well with change - but life is too short to not have the time to truly enjoy the moments that make you smile".
Thanks for taking a look at my project today!

"Darling" by Geraldine Pasinati

Hi there!
Happy New year and wishing you all a 'Fantastic 2012'.
For my first post this year I'm showing a layout full of
Green Tara combined mixed stems and flowers that
have been sprayed with Glimmer mist. I decided to go
with a darker palette for this layout to give a more
masculine look to the layout - I have to please my
son in the photo as well as the daughter! The colour range
and various styles in Green Tara flowers are diverse,
although if you cannot get the perfect colour match
simply glimmer mist or ink.
Thanks for stopping visiting the Blog.

"A Mothers Love" by Di Garling

Hello everyone. Today I wanted to show you a layout I have just finished where I have used lots of yummy Green Tara flowers that all started their life as WHITE flowers. With the aid of lots of Glimmermist I have changed them all to various shades of purples & reds. All of these various flowers, sprays & leaves come in lots & lots of different colours, but if you haven't got just the right shade you are looking for, go for white & colour it up yourself. Too easy. In amongst my flower clusters, if you look closely, you will see some gorgeous "decorative sprays" in peacock. These are just devine. They add a little touch of bling & give off lots of different colours so they match most things while adding some sparkle & shine. I usually break them up & just use a little here & there which makes them even more cost effective. I think you will find they are already very well priced as are most of the Green Tara products.
Products Used
Decorative Spray in Peacock (7 leaves) XB28558P
Flower Spray in White PFST1
Maple Leaves in White LA7Wh
Gardenia Flowers in White FDV054Wh
Rosebuds 2cm White FDR009Wh
Rosebuds 1.5cm in White FDR003Wh
Rosebuds 1cm in White FDR001Wh
All of these products are available in many other colours.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
Cheers Di xoxo

"Adventure" layout by Vicky Alberto

This layout is of my sons during a camping trip in the mountains two years ago. There is a mix of Pion Design papers, Dusty Attic and Tattered Angels Chipboard, plus I've layered some gorgeous Green Tara flowers on this page. Sometimes on a boy layout, a little "flowering" goes a long way. Here I have used two layers of the new Green Tara white petals a cream cherry blossom to create each of the flowers. Thanks so much for taking time out to visit the blog today!
