You and me makes me Happy - Scrapmatts May projects

Welcome to my May Scrapmatts projects.
They are both created with soft, feminine colours 
which I enjoy working with. The paper is from Prima.
I thought the ornate frames were perfect for the shabby chic style of the page. They were not quite the right size for my photos, 
so I trimmed off the sides and just used the tops.  
The Metal Filligree corners tied in with the soft gold of the heart sprays
and I used black texture paste through the Stencil Bubbles to enhance the title. 
The heart sprays are perfect for tucking into clusters to soften the edges.
JOURNALLING - on the back of the page.
These three photos show how quickly your expressions change and how happy you are to have your photo taken - as long as I’m quick about it!   After all there is lots of crafting, bike riding, gardening and mud play to grab your attention.  Like a little honey eater, you flit from one activity to another, eager to slurp the essence out of every experience.  We love your company, your sunny nature and your quirky sense of humour.  
Photo taken 17 August 2015.  Journalling 7 May 2016. Love Granny
