Meg's Garden - Getting Ready Layout & Card


The beautiful papers from The Forget Me Not 2 Collection and various elements from Meg's Garden were perfect to highlight, and record this special photograph.  The photograph was taken of my Mother on her wedding day. Alongside of my Mother, is her Grandmother - my Great-Grandmother.


'Delicate Blue' was the paper I chose for the background, with its regal and very elegant scrolls and lacework leaves/fine flowers - it is so pretty, and looks exquisite in 'real'.  My layout consists of layers of cardstock, and various papers/transparencies from the Forget Me Not 2 collection and the Cardmakers pack. Also included are Paper Lace Doily's which were sprayed with Glimmer Mist, and the image itself was edged with gorgeous lace, various flowers, ribbonpearl string, and the most gorgeous silver clock and key charms I have ever seen - everything really is so beautiful, and helped make this layout so special.


I adore the 2nd range of papers, just as much as the first edition of 'The Forget Me Not Collection'... each collection melds perfectly with each other.

The gorgeous butterfly in the photograph above, is part of 'The Forget Me Not 2 Collection', so very pretty!

I adhered the word (Love, Cherish and Adore) transparencies throughout my layout.  Transparencies are wonderful to add to corners of photographs - actually, anywhere!  The Transparencies are part of the Forget Me Not 2 Collection, and are called 'Tag Transparencies'.

I thought I would create a card using  left over products from my layout.  The ribbon I have used on my card is an unusual texture which is especially for stamping on - it also created a beautiful bow for my card.
