Dreamy Love Layout - Guest Design for Meg's Garden

Today, I am guest designing for Meg's Garden, using the new release Dreaming In The Meadows paper collection.  Meg's Garden is an Australian, online store, specialising in unique papers designed by fellow Australian, Denise Ann.   The store itself has a wealth of wonderful products that cater for the paper-crafter.  You can also find beautiful creations by the design team on the Meg's Garden Blog,  including product updates, and new release paper collections.

I have had this photograph sitting in my 'photo stack' for some time, wanting to be scrapped.  This paper collection was perfect for the occasion.  I don't tend to work in purple hues often, even though it is a beautiful colour, I often avoid it for some reason. The photograph itself is of a vintage wedding - I purchased the original photograph of Etsy and the writing inscribed on the back, I sadly cannot decipher.  Regardless, it is a beautiful one to scrap. 
The Dreaming In The Meadows paper collection, was perfect for lots of fussy cutting - with those fussy cut elements mounted on foam to give dimension. 
Meg has a beautiful selection of lace paper doily's which are the best I have ever come across, with such gorgeous intricate detail and available in a vast amount of styles and sizes.  You can find all the paper lace doily's 'HERE'.   The doily's are a high quality, and the intricate details in the doily, can also be easily fussy cut.
 Flowers used in this layout, are from Prima Marketing and are an older stock.   They were a perfect match colour wise.  I also used a chipboard title, which has been floating about in my stash for quite some time. I have a box on my work-desk, which I throw remnants, and left over products into, and delve into it on occasion to find that 'special' piece for a layout....

I will be back 'soon', with another creation .... till then, happy creating
Sandie
