I do actually have 3 girls…. (lol)

Seems like I’ve been scrapping my eldest and youngest DDs exclusively lately, (its just that their photos were the right colours). So I promised the next page would be of my other DD – she was very pleased with it.

From my DT kit, this one uses Bo Bunny Mammi-Razzi.

Idea 78: She particularly liked this sparkly tissue-paper flower I made.  You just cut 5 layers of 3 different size circles, stitch them together in the centre, spray with glimmermist, then blow-dry with a hair dryer and the layers separate. Quick and fun.

This next one uses more from my kit, Little Yellow Bicycle CLOTHESLINE range.

Can you believe her little tongue poked out like this for 6 months till we found out what it was causing it.

Idea 79: Make a lace rosette for the flower centre.

Idea 80: Back the journalling spot with felt (I would havr preferred to use pinking sheers, but I had none).

Idea 81: I think I can call this one my very own idea, I call it ‘FROSTING’. I dabbed an old toothbrush into the gunky paint that collects at the top of the MM paint bottle lids then dabbed it on the heart and flower petals making it more 3D. I love the effect and it softens the strong aqua colour.

Idea 82: Make paper rosettes for the flower centres.

This one is made from Prima STRAWBERRY KISSES range and using Prima & Kaiser flowers.

Idea 83: Double up the title using different alphas.

Idea 84: Stamp the chipboard flourish with another flourish to highlight it.
