"Sweet 16" Layout - Meg's Garden

"Sweet 16"
My second project for Meg's Garden is another layout of my Mother, at the age of 16 wearing her first special occasion dress.  I wished we still wore dresses like this!  The layout is based on 'Green Paisley Toile' paper, from the 'Spring Paisley Collection', and teamed with matching cardstock.  I built up layers using the various sized lace doilies available from Meg's Garden - sprucing them up with spray of Glimmer Mist, and touch of Distress Inks in various shades - really made them shimmer beautifully.  I used various elements from other papers in the 'Spring Paisley Collection' to fussy cut elements, to enhance the edges of the doilies. 

 Please call on over to the Meg's Garden Blog for further inspiration...
Till next time

Oh Sandie your layouts are really just dreamy - so exquisitely beautiful.. and the card you commented on my last post was not one of mine but one of Sharon's - of my Craft Cupboard I was promoting her blog in an effort to get some more folk see her lovely work and some have so am very very pleased .. maybe you knew that but was not quite sure by your comment so thought better let you know as did not want to take credit for her work. Take care and hope you are well Shaz.xx
