Love, Cherish Adore Layout and Card - Meg's Garden

Gosh, I was such a little cutie as a baby, especially with that ultra trendy mohawk!  LOL
My layout this month for Meg's Garden was created using various papers from the first edition of 'The Forget Me Not Collection', the background paper being 'Delicate Blue' with a cardstock background.  A variety of flowers were coloured using a Glimmer Mist, and at times Distress Inks to create depth and warmth.  Burgundy and Antique Blue Forget Me Not flowers, and tiny punched flowers were used as fillers.  Meg's Garden has a beautiful array of guipure laces, and these were added into the layout to create a frame of sorts.
I adore lace, and of course Meg's Garden stocks a wonderful assortment of various laces, and some stunning guipure laces - which I have used in this layout.  This particular lace is wonderful to use distress inks or glimmer mist on - the guipure lace absorbs the colour to perfection, so you're able to come up with colours to suit your creative ventures...
 The rest of the Design Team have been totally busy this last month and their creative projects are not only inspirational, but amazing pieces of art... well worth investigating and can be found upon the Meg's Garden Blog.

My card was created using some of the left-overs from my layout - wonderful way to use up 'bits and pieces'.  The roses from Meg's Garden are a delight to colour, but are also wonderful left plain too.
