Manor House & Maggie Holmes Inspiration

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday to you all :)) Back to school and kindy today for my little boys...we loved the holidays, they went too quick but its good to be back into routine again.

Last month I got the urge to scrap again...its been a while where I have actually enjoyed what I was doing.  So I cracked open my huge box of newly released Manor House flowers and some Maggie Holmes Crate Paper and scrapped up a storm.

Here is my first layout....

Even tho we don't know whether we are having a boy or a girl I couldn't help but use the beautiful array of pink flowers that Manor House sent me for this layout.  They have some new vines in a few different colours and they are my absolute all time favourite!

"12 weeks"

Love the colour combo here of pinks, limes and turquoise.  Most of the flowers on this layout are new but I have also teamed them up with a few from previous releases. Spot the Rainbow Splendor felt butterflies :)

Sigh...the goose feathers are simply soft and delicate.  This inspired me to create a few little "falling" feathers from vellum to add to my layout especially with that little birdie sitting in my flower cluster..

I have framed my scan photo with a Melissa Frances frame which has been sitting in my drawer for far too long.

Next is a layout I created where I didn't have a plan to start with, just started with a background of gesso and Shimmerz mist and went for it.  Yes me and pink on boy layouts...strange aren't I!!! :))

"Love you so Much"

This time I focused more on the new Ornate Frames that Manor House recently released.  I chopped a couple in half and used them as a scallop under and on top of my photo.

Love this super sweet pic of my boys, they are the light of my life :))

Well I have a couple more creations using the yummy Crate Paper by Maggie Holmes but I will leave them for another post.

I have simply LOVED working with this paper range, in fact I only have a few scraps left!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me.
Have a beautiful week
