"Treasured Memories" by Di Garling

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend, I know I did. I finished scrapping this layout I was working on & today I thought I would share it with you all. This is the most gorgeous photo a friend of mine had taken by a local photographer, JasArt Photographic Art, of her new baby daughter, thanks Jamie. I did a mauve layout with a baby with angel wings a month ago done by the same photographer.
I have been saving this fairy up for a special project & I figured this photo is about as special as it gets. As you can see I have cut it out & layered it up over my photo so that the baby is nestled underneath the fairy. Just like a fairytale!!!
I have used loads of yummy Green Tara flowers as you can see in this pic including one of the NEW "Heirloom" silk & organza fabric flowers in the centre of my cluster, as well as several ivory roses in various sizes. I have just wiped a little apricot ink over  the edge of the petals to tie all the colours together. I have also used some beautiful Green Tara lace which I have just tucked in here & there around the edges of the layout in between the paper layers.
Next I have used some Green Tara "Bud N Bow" satin finish trim in ivory as you can see in this photo. It always makes an impact on a layout & it comes in several colours too.
In this photo you will notice my gorgeous big bow which I have tied using the Green Tara NEW Crinkled Edge Satin Organza Ribbon. This ribbon makes incredibly beautiful bows & because it is "crinkled" it makes a huge statement on a layout with the bulk. I love it. This also comes in many colours. Lastly I have finished off with a beautiful  2 Crafty chipboard word     
"Treasured Memories". I thought this word was so appropriate for this very special layout. Thanks for stopping by to have a look at my little "fairytale". I hope I have inspired you to do something similar. I always say, if you use beautiful, well cordinated products, you can't help but be pleased with the finished product.
Until next time.   Cheers Di  xo
