Happy New Year

Hello and welcome to my first post for 2017.
I hope you all had a great New Year and that you have found time to be creative.

Today I would like to share with you my latest DT project for Scrapmatts.

"Look At Me Now"

This page has been designed with Authentique "Felicity" papers, 45 and Market flowers and fabulous chipboard from Scrapmatts.

I really love these papers and the CB4007 Frame was a perfect fit for my photo. 
I coloured all the chipboard with Gold Ink. 
I then embellished with flowers and used collectables from my stash to match the papers.
I added the title from CB6116 Words. These were great as they came pre-coloured in black.

Look @ me now words from CB6116 Words 29

Always Smiling Word is from CB1241 Scrap Words

For the second page I wanted to frame my photo's, so I found the CB4017 Picket Fence was just the right fit. 

The photo's were taken last year in Bali on our Scrapbook Retreat on the rooftop of our hotel which had a garden. So I wanted my layout to have that summer garden feel. So picket fences, flowers and butterflies seemed appropriate.
I also felt great as by the time these photo's were taken, I had lost 38kgs. So I was feeling fabulous.
