Hello everyone. It 's my turn up on the blog & I have
three different projects to share with you.
This first layout I actually made about a year ago, but I was
never really happy with it. Soooo, I pulled everything off it
except for the chippie frame & totally re did it & now
I am finally, really happy with it.
I have gone TOTALLY OVER THE TOP
with glitz, glam & bling!!!
It is nice to go crazy once in a while with such "girly" things,
& I thought a wedding page deserved something a little special.
This fab pic is of a friends daughter & her bridesmaids.
Well as always I have done lots of layering, distressing & stamping
but I have use a couple of gorgeous Green Tara blings.
First up I used one of their
Acrylic/Diamante Flower & Bud Sprays.
These are just sooo glam, love them.
The other piece of Bling I used was another fab piece from
Green Tara called, a Crystal Teardrop Spray.
When I use these I always break them into about six little individual
Crystal Sprays & just tuck them in here & there amongst
my flower clusters. These come in several pastel colours.
I have used a clear one here.
I have also used lots & lots of the Green Tara Roses in
three different sizes & three different colours.
These Roses come in so many different colours
& different sizes too. I just love these, can't get enough of them.
In the photo above you can see a beautiful
Green Tara Lace tucked in underneath the photo.
They have so many laces, we really are spoilt for choice.
All of my pink & aqua Roses I have added a little gold paint to
the petals to add to my touch of glamour.
I have also used lots of Green Tara Daisies as well as some of
their Flower Sprays.
(which is actually a wired spray of daisies)
I painted all of the Daisy centres in gold too,
to keep in with the whole glam theme.
I have also tucked some sweet little
Green Tara Velvet Leaves in
here & there. These little Velvet Leaves are great because they
are actually wired , so you can bend & push them however
you like & they stay put.
All of this beautiful chipboard on these layouts, including this big
Flowery Swirl Frame & both my words are from
I used a Medium on it to create this lovely texture &
then applied lots of metallic paints.
I hope this layout inspires you to lash out & do something over
the top girly & blingy too.

"Hanging Bird Cage"
For my second project this month I thought I would do something
a little different. Now I have to admit I don't do a lot of
"Beyong the Page" but when I saw this gorgeous "shabby"
Hanging Bird Cage, I just couldn't wait to get started.
I thought it would make a lovely present for someone special.
This project, I have to admit, was really soooooo easy.
I just got out all my white Green Tara flowers & started.
I wanted to keep it all in whites with just a "kiss of green".
Ooops, before I forget, A friend of mines hubby,
photographed this for me.
I am not the best at photographing things like this,
& he is such a great local photographer.
Thanks Kent xo
I have used one of the gorgeous Green Tara ribbons, a
"Satin Edged Organza"
& I have also used some of their green "Velvet Leaves".
Apart from those two things, I kept everything else white.
The large white flower you see on the left is the "Damask"
& the two bigger ones in the photo on the right are
"Gardenia" on top & "Sakura" underneath.
All of the others are listed below.

"Our Sweet Girl"
For my last layout this month, I thought I would show you this
one I did a couple of weeks ago for a challenge.
Some of you have probably already seen it.
I really loved it because as well as lots of yummy
Green Tara flowers, I have also used one of their
NEW ribbons. It is a 38mm wide
"Polka Dot Organza" Ribbon.
I think this ribbon is fabulous & even though it is 38mm wide,
because it is a fine organza, it doesn't make your
layout bulky at all.
Just a little close up of some of the flowers.
The biggest one is called "Tutu". It has a little pearl in the middle &
it comes in some really beautiful colours as well.
Also used more Roses, Cherry Blossoms, Velvet Leaves & then added
a Silk Flower with a Swarovski Crystal in the middle.
All from Green Tara naturally.
Well thats all from me today.
I'll see you back here on the blog next month.
