Pucker Up!

Here are a couple of pages I thought I would share with you.
This first one, 'Pucker Up' is using papers from the Echo park - Life is Good' Collection. I have also added some Papermania glittery Ribbon and a paper doily...oh yes and a dabbing of Cinnamon Stickles. The photo is my Sister and my youngest Nephew at his Christening......he kept pulling funny faces and pursing his lips as if in a scowl....it made us laugh so much and she decided next time he did it she would mimic him!

I pleated the paper strips around the bottom of the shaped section and then placed an inch wide strip across the width of the layout, under the photo and then cut hundreds of teeny slices along it( then popped the glitter ribbon along the top). Then I just cut and layered lots of flowers and added Stickles ( Gosh! I just luuuuuuurve Stickles....don't you?)
My 2nd layout is of Lauren, just chilling out in the back garden. I have used various bits and bobs on this page
I bought some black Tim Holtz birdcage die cuts on ebay, printed some doilies onto transparency sheets, stamped some swirls and Stickled bits and bobs here and there and then just layered the bits where I wanted them :)
Hope you have a lovely day....the sun has decided to hide behind the clouds here at the moment....maybe they will make an appearance again later...

Warmest wishes
