How did work go? It was long I was there hours and I felt like I achieved nothing (usual superwoman thing - what do you mean I didn't manage to cross off at least half of my to do list whilst I was in work) etc.
Anyway wanted to share another Shimelle layout that I've don, the challenge was to refrain from the normal embellishments and use paper to embellish a page, I've used some papers out of my Hippy Chick stack the back ground of which is a plain orange stripe and then used other papers from the collection to create the elements on the page, one page I'd already part used in another layout and so I used elements of that along the top of the photo of my and my hubby as well as in the corners, then I used another piece that had strips of other elements to punch out the hearts, create the wave along the bottom and add to the top and bottom of the Hogwards Castle photo, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and it is a technique I've used before, the great thing with creating embellishments from paper is that you can get them to completely 'match' the papers you are using if you are using them from a stack of papers!
Close up detail of the punched border and the hearts - as you can see the papers completely compliment each other!
So there you go another Shimelle layout I'm hoping to get chance to do some more later on but we'll see what today brings (at the moment its bringing an oversized ironing pile - hey ho - off to do battle with it!) Catch ya later!
