Bedtime Story LO - The Scrapbook Store


This month for The Scrapbook Store, I am working with the gorgeous Graphic 45, Mother Goose paper collection, and elements.  The paper collection is seriously gorgeous, with not only brighter colours, but also the more muted too - not to forget the most magical nursery rhyme images.  

I used the Ring Around the Rosies paper, and done some major fussy cutting of various flowers and leaves.  Flowers were created using the Die Cut Flowers - they are simple to construct and always look pretty, especially when teamed with layered fussy cut elements.  Yellow adhesive pearls were added to some of the flower centre's to highlight.

I doodled some stitching, really wanted to be more creative in the doodling side, but each time I attempt a doodle, I detest what I have done and have to cover it. Several LO's have ended up in the bin because of my doodling attempts.
 The photograph is of me as a child, and the journaling side of this layout is on my favourite story book - written on back of layout.  From a very  young age, my Mother used to read my favourite book to me each night (and often through the day too) - actually I am sure I pestered her to read it constantly.  I was mesmerised with it.  It is called "Pookie Puts The World Right", and it is a beautiful story, and I adored the little creature Pookie.  I still do.  There is a series of Pookie stories, and I am collecting them for Jesse.

Thanks for calling by for a visit...
