Layout - In Love

Hi Everyone, Day 3 of our Round the World with CRI-Kits Blog Hop..... I hope you checked out Jane's awesome Disney Layout yesterday, and Diane's Boston Tea Party today for your chance to win a set of the Cri-Kits Gel Pens. And don't forget to check in daily with Scrappy-Go-Lucky for the major prize of the 4 new release cartridges -

Tonight I thought I would show you another layout. I wanted to do something that was simple but elegant to frame and hang on our bedroom wall. The papers I chose are from the Kaiser Gypsy Sisters collection, the colours of which match perfectly with our clothing and bedroom.

This gorgeous cut is from "Tie The Knot". The red heart is a layer that I embossed with the "Kimmy Luvs" cuttlebug folder. I then carefully applied glue to the embossed part and sprinkled with a crimson glitter.

The beautiful piano is from "Summer In Paris" - my favourite cartridge at the moment. The pale lemon layer underneath is the same as the backing sheet, but I inked around the edges with burgandy ink.

The two flourishes are cut from "Stretch Your Imagination" (in differing sizes), and they are topped by beautiful flowers, lace, and a skeleton leaf kindly donated from Tracey's stash (Thank-you Tracey). The wooden flourish is Kaiser which has been inked first with burgandy, then red, then glossy accents applied.

I added just a little paper-piercing, and some pearls in the corners. I have decided to add some of the lovely pearl flourishes that Jane loves using, but haven't yet been able to find any in our local craft stores.

I hope you like it. I will post another photo when it is hanging in its new home.

Don't forget to check out Tracey's blog tomorrow - I am sure it will be amazing.

Till Friday,
Luv, Tereesa.
