Today I'm sharing another of the layouts from my fortnightly class at Scrapbook Sisters

This is the second layout I have finished from class two of three using the K&Co Poppy Seed Pad, plus other add ons.

This is another photo from SIL's wedding and is of her and my HB (who gave her away).  I love this photo of the two of them, they both look so happy :-)

I think I prefer this LO to yesterdays - it's still got a lot going on but is cleaner and simpler.  I love the colour combinations here and the use of white space is really effective.  Maybe it's because the photo is in black and white that it looks more classy than if I'd of used a colour one like on yesterdays - maybe I should swap yesterdays pic for the same one in B&W... hmm...

The scrolled frame is cut out using one of those plastic template thingys, and I've trimmed the photo to a 4 x 4 inch square then matted it on more white cardstock to make it pop out from the background.

The title is stamped with Woodware Alphabet stamps

I'd never made these fan flowers before, but they were really easy, but they really made my arms ache with all that folding.  I've used a Papermania felt brad in the middle of each.

I've hand cut the leaves and chalked them a touch, then punched flowers using the EK Success retro punch.  The middle of each flower is from the reverse of the same paper as the retro flower, but using a mini Woodware flower punch.  There is a black diamond gem in the middle of each flower. I domed the flowers and leaves slightly in my hand with a round pen cap, and have stuck them onto the page with foam pads to give them a bit of a lift.

One thing I used the flowers for was to cover up things in the photo that I didn't want to be seen - right at the top of the photo was a fire exit sign.  I couldn't crop it out without cutting HB head off (although that is very tempting on occasion ;-)... ), so I've stuck a flower over it - and it's gone!!

Thanks for stopping by
