Here is my take on the sketch, I loved the different elements from the paper and did a fair amount of fussy cutting. I am not big fan on detail cutting but some of the papers are just perfect for that.

Forever Memories ~ Mixed Media Layout By Heather Thompson

I made another fun page from our recent trip over seas with the card kit, so  many more things you can make than just cards, why not a full layout page. This is a photo from our trip overseas,  my great friend Laneen and I eating at a little sidewalk cafe along in the wonderful city of Arnhem. These are truly forever memories. Tres Jolie Layout July 2018.jpg

I made a video of how this all came to be. I altered the photo to make it more vintage looking, and just went to town on putting it all together

Here are a few more close-ups.

Shabby Chic Blank Layout By Heather Thompson

I was asked to make a gift for a mother and her new baby, I thought I would make a pretty layout and leave the photo blank, having kids of my own, I always tried to get the one special picture, just them and me. So this a shabby chic layout, only given the information of a little bit of pink white and silver. Hopefully this will work. Tres Jolie 12x12 page.jpg

Here is a short video for you all.

I hope you enjoy how elegant this all came together. Using very few supplies from my own stash, I created this beautiful page. Here are a few close-ups
