Just a Little Fantasy
by Jan Rankine


Hello everyone, Jan here again  - I can't "believe" it's already 2014, last year went far too quickly.  
This layout was inspired by my love of fussy cutting and paper tole.

Here I've used the pretty lavender  "Azaleas", along with a "Primula" and "Cherry Blossoms" and "Roses".  I've also tucked in some of the new "Stamens", and a"Rainforest Butterfly".
The ribbon is lavender "Bud-n-Bow".

My favourite little "Roses" and green "Velvet Leaves"  along with the new natural "Raffia".

This flower and the butterfly I fussy cut.  If you look closely in the top left
 hand corner you will seeI have used some beautiful gold
 "Fairy Mesh' Ribbon on my fairy's wings.

"You Leave Footprints on my Heart"

I used soft gelato colours on this page to get a nice summery feel.

"Gardenias", "Primulas" and "Roses" make up this cluster.
  I separated a pink Primula and  tucked some of it in this cluster.

The same flowers are in this cluster, with the other half of the pink Primula. 
Of course it wouldn't be a Green Tara page without "Velvet Leaves".

 "Cherish the Moments"

This layout was  my entry in the "White With 1" Challenge for November. 
The photos are of my grandson and his girlfriend at their Year 12 Formal.


Please visit our facebook page to see what's happening at Green Tara.

Thank you so much for dropping by.  I hope I have inspired you just a little.

Luv Jan xx
