Tea for Two Layout


Hubby is away tonight so I am spending my Valentine evening catching up on some crafting and admin!  

Despite it being 14th Feb, I have not done a love themed project but I wanted to share a layout that I have completed using the Tea for Two papers from the Spring/Summer Catalogue.  These are beautiful and lend themselves to vintage style projects, although I think the colours work well giving a modern twist. 

This was a quick layout to complete with just a bit of cutting and sticking.  The most time consuming part was waiting for the Crystal Effects to dry on the round embellishment at the bottom of the photo that I wanted to give a vintage broach type feel to. 

The girl in the photo is my Mum and as soon as I saw these papers knew where this photo was going.  In this layout, I want my journalling to be very private so it will be written onto a tag and inserted into the back of the photo which has been attached as a pocket.
