Special Moments Layout - The Scrapbook Store

Today I have a layout created for The Scrapbook Store, using the Kaisercraft, Flora Delight paper collection.  What a gorgeous colour array, and I had to use a photograph of my Mum, as the shirt she was wearing matched perfectly.  This photograph was taken not long before we moved to Western Australia.
Every element of the layout was edged using the Gold, Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dauber, including the Manor House, Green Tara, and I am Roses Flowers.  The larger flowers did not quite match colour wise, so I applied a misting of Plum, and Kraft Glimmer Mist.
 Borders created using the Martha Stewart, Doily Lace Punch - one of my very favourite punches!  I adhered lace to the edges of the round die-cuts using Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive, which had been coloured using Kraft Glimmer Mist.
 My sewing machine is playing up at the moment in the tension department, so I opted to use a brown pen to draw in stitches.
 Various die-cuts were used from the 6.5" X 6.5" Flora Delight paper pad, and the Poppy Stamps, Gentle Leaf was used for foliage. 
 Call on over to The Scrapbook Store Blog, to keep up with all the latest news, products, and sale items, and the Gallery, to see some wonderful inspiration and to take part in the monthly sketch...

You match photos to colours, too - glad I'm not the only one....& my sewing machine refuses to do zig zag atm.....v annoying when they're not working properly, eh???!!!! I really like how you've got those ruffles around the circles here - looks great!!!!!!!!!
