Live Beautifully … differently …

The scrapbooking world is in LOVE with CTMH’s Live Beautifully collection – and I can’t deny how beautiful the paper collection is.

However – as the tomboy mother of boys, the ‘flowery’ part of the paper pack (most people’s favourite papers), are a little too girly for me.

The clever clogs at CTMH must have known there were a few people out there like me, because along with the flowery papers, they put a range of black and white papers (me all over), and some great ombre.

Here’s what the paper pack looks like;


So I’ve taken a sheet of the ombre, and bizarrely, have ‘flowered’ it up with a little background stamping, using the flowers that come with the May SOTM.  Here’s the stampset;

Beautiful huh?!!  It’s a colourers’ dream!  We got a little taste of this type of stamp set last quarter with one of the Dreamin’ Big stamp sets – Hello.  It was very similar to this, and had the word ‘life’ just like the ‘together’ on this one.  So I combined both onto one page, and used heat embossing instead of colouring to keep the look simple (which as you know, is me all over).

Here’s the finished result;

What do you think?  I know, you can’t stop looking at the photo right?!!  :)  What a handsome bunch of boys I have!

But what do you think of the layout??
