Happy Heart | Mandy Melville

Hello again D-lish friends!

It's Mandy here again today with my final share for the month. This layout is loaded up with lots of D-lish goodies!!

"Happy Heart"


I really love this photo of my kids and I that was taken on Mothers Day this year. I don't get in photos with my kids as much as I should, so Mothers Day is always a good excuse to have a photo taken with them... It's kind of mandatory in our house! This year was extra special because it was my first Mothers Day that I celebrated with my little Eleanor!

To start my layout off, I added some stamping to my background using a Kaisercraft stamp, and then layered some patterned papers as a base for my photo. Behind the photo you can see that I added a paper doily.

Let's take a look at some closeups so that you can see all of the D-lish goodies that I've used...


Along the top of my layout I've laid two strips of patterned paper as well as a strip of the black skinny washi tape. Then in the top left hand corner of my layout, I've added a black sequin bow along with a tangelo starflower. These are really pretty, and I especially love this tangelo colour!


I tucked a shipping tag between the paper layers and used this to journal on. I also tied some black and white cotton twine to the tag. To the top right hand corner of my photo I've attached a natural wooden peg. You can also see here one of the words from the black Minifetti sheet. These sheets are awesome - I think I need to buy them in every colour!


To the left of my photo, I added a die cut from the November Just Add Paper kit, another starflower, and a Freckled Fawn arrow paperclip.


To the right of my photo I created a pretty flower cluster that includes a black wild rose, another starflower, and two white sweetheart blooms. I LOVE the wild roses... they are one of my faves at the moment!!


In the bottom right hand corner of my layout I included a couple more phrases from the black Minifetti sheet. You can also see here that I've added a heart wooden button.

I finished my layout off by scattering a few black sequins (these were from the current Just Add Paper kit).

Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking a look at my layout! That's my last share for this month... next time I am back here on the D-lish blog, it will be nearly Christmas!!! (EEEK, I'd better start getting organised!!). I hope that you manage to squeeze in some scrapping time in the busy lead up to Christmas!
