Oh So Dainty!

That's really the last thing I am and the same goes for my layouts.  While I haven't mastered the art of embellishing, I don't generally shy away from patterns.  This was the last full sheet of paper I had from Shimelle's Best of Both World's collection.  It's called Love Bouquet from My Mind's Eye.  You can see the whole paper here, the b-side is a grey and white doily pattern.  

  



I knew right away I wanted to use a doily as a photo mat on this paper but I had a hard time finding one locally.  Lucky for me, Sarah & Beverly brought some to Raleigh for me.  I like how the layout looks even though it doesn't feel typical of my pages.  I really think it's the "lace" and that I don't normally work with big circles like this.   I added a strip of the b-side to anchor the title.  The thickers match perfectly, as expected as they are from the same kit.  This was the perfect place to use the smoke colored Dear Lizzy thickers. A couple of butterflies, adorned with some bling and we're ready to call this done!

Has anyone else ever have a page element just speak to them?
