For those of you who've seen my videos on You Tube you'll recognise this photo. I used this photo on a tutorial on how to pick your backgrounds and colour schemes. I hadn't actually put the page together until the retreat weekend and then I threw all those ideas out the window because these papers were on special for 50cents each..... what can I say? The miser in me won out... I also created the flower embellishment by using other paper flowers as a template to cut out from these papers and then edging each flower with my puffy velvet markers. I did use some thickers for the "beary" but as I was using them on other layouts that weekend I knew I was getting my money's worth. (Sometimes you can buy an alphabet and it takes years to use up the rest of the packet... if at all).
