A Couple of Layouts to Share
By Shona Keehn

Hi everyone, and welcome to Green Tara. This is my first post
 here and I am so excited to be part of this amazing Design Team.
 I squealed with delight when my Green Tara happy mail arrived and
 I just had to get to work right away with the yummy goodies.
 This is a photo of my grand daughter giving her dog some snuggles and
 I have used a sketch from Stuck on U Sketches. 
"Sweet Friends"
For the top cluster I have used some gorgeous Green Tara flowers,
 black maple leaves and one of the new butterflies.
 I tucked in a Dusty Attic chippy and added dabs of gesso to everything.

Green Tara also has a gorgeous variety of ribbons and lace
 and I have topped the banner with some Bud and Bow ribbon. 

 My feature Green Tara flower is the gorgeous new Laurel 8cm 
Silk and Organza Flower in Burgundy. Isn’t that just a beauty! 
I tucked in a few more Green Tara flowers and leaves to finish it all off. 

Here is one more layout that I have created this month for a challenge at CSI.
 I did lots of masking in the background, fussy cutting,
 added a beautiful Dusty Attic frame and finished it all off
 with some gorgeous Green Tara goodness. 

"Enchanted Forest"

I have used a variety of glimmer mists to get the flowers
 the perfect colors  that I needed, 
 these Green Tara flowers just misted perfectly!

Well that is it for me today, thank you so much for stopping by.
 I have posted a list  below of all the yummy Green Tara products used.
