Scrap the Girls - Feb Challenge

Your Smile



Enjoyed using this simple sketch for STG's. Quite like the texture you can create with tissue paper and I found this gorgeous black and white tissue which I thought would go perfectly with my pics of Brittany. The pp's for the background and hand cut flowers are Glitz Design Hoopla. I used some yummy Prima lace, butterfly and blossoms and a couple of doily centres. The border around the LO was made with MS iron fence punch, and bordered it with a bit of machine stitching. The MME rubon quote reads "Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy".

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love :)
