Simple Stories Vintage Bliss Layout - Imagine - Louise

I think I am in love, with a new paper collection that is.  Vintage Bliss is so lovely and the colours are stunning.  I am really loving creating layouts with this line.  I have designed a very girly one this week to share using lots of bits and pieces from the shop...... 

I made my photo sepia in PSE9 before I printed as the colours in the photo would have clashed with the papers.

I then cut out the elements I wanted to use from Vintage Bliss QuotesBingo and Journal papers and mated them with white cardstock.  I also cut my background paper Big Smile so that it could also be matted onto white cardstock.   I then moved them around until I was happy with the placement.

I circled the numbers that were the photo date on the bingo card, lucky for me they were in one corner ;)  I added a wooden flourish bird by Kaisercraft which I have painted with Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Picket Fence .  I added some gorgeous Prima mini roses in Spring.

I went around the photo with a length of matching bakers twine  and tied a bow to join the ends.  i then added a flair badge in the corner

Thanks loads for joining me today and I hope my layout inspires your creativity.
Happy scrapping :)

    The sepia Photo is a wonderful contrast to the happy and gay papers, the layout is great.
