My First Post with Green Tara..
By Shinobu Hiramatsu

Hello everyone!!  It's Shinobu with you today.
This is my first post with Green Tara. I'm so excited and happy!!
I'd like to share three layouts. I hope you like them.
Here is the first one...

" Love Love Love "  

 On this layout I've used a lavender  "Velvet Rose", an  ivory "Wild Rose",
Aubergine/White "Apple Blossom", yellow and white "Roses",
"Velvet Leaves", as well as some  turquoise 
 "Double Sided Vertical Stripe Satin Ribbon".
This Satin ribbon inspired my layout.

  I love this ivory "Organza Satin Hearts" ribbon too,
 not to mention these gold "Flower Sprays".

 I added a "Metal Embellishments Corner" as well as 
this beautiful "Off White Lace" and  some "Mesh White".

 The title of this layout was made by some  chipboard and this
Green Tara "Washi Tape- LOVE".
I have also tucked in a sage "Tutu" flower,
 and a white "Apple Blossom".

Here is my second layout of
 my son and his best friend.

" Memories "

I chose  the Red/Black "Vertical Stripe Ribbon" for this cheerful layout.
I also added some "Natural Jute Ribbon", my favorite yellow
"Heirloom" flowers, brown " Primula", mini"Roses",
and some "Velvet Leaves".

 I like yellow so much, because it gives me energy!!
I have used yellow flowers here too,
4cm"Heirloom", 5cm"Azaleas",
and cream"Cherry Blossom".

My  third layout was made for DT work for  Bird is the Word "Always" challenge.
I used  Peachy Pink "Herringbone" ribbon  boldly to make a big heart.

" Peek a Boo!! "

 I wanted to make very cute layout,
so I chose peach pink Green Tara goodies.
Peach "Heirloom" flowers, white"Apple Blossoms",
white 1cm"Rose"and "Mini Rosebud".

I used peach "Heirloom"here too, this is 4cm.
A lavender  "Damask" was a good accent for this layout.

Here I have used some  cream "Skeleton Mesh" to create
 fantastic softness & texture.
This is one of my favorites.
And I have also used some  violet "Cherry Blossoms".
