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??
