Happy Family | Mandy Melville

Hello D-lish friends!

I'm back today with my final share for the month! I love playing along with challenges and the Cybercrop challenges in The Scrap Suite this month are super inspiring! Yesterday I shared my take on Sonia's challenge, and today I'm sharing my layout that I created for Michelle's challenge...

"Happy Family"

If you haven't seen it yet, this is the challenge that Michelle has set for us...

I love using cut files on my layouts, so this was right up my alley! I also included fussy cutting and a die cut on my layout!

I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe to create my title and I backed it with pretty patterned papers from the Paige Evans' Fancy Free collection.

Here are some closeups of my layout so that you can see all of the D-lish pretties that I've used...

You can probably tell that the wood veneers are one of my fave things in the D-lish store at the moment because I included them on all of my layouts this month! I used the wood veneer word 'happy' as part of my title on this layout, which I painted with black Heidi Swapp Color Shine. You can also see here the super pretty printed veneer butterfly that I used on my layout! In the middle of the letter 'a' in my title, I popped a flair button from the 'Washi Hearts Set B'.

I created some layers behind my photo using one of the lovely 6" lace doilies, a black stripe bitty bag, and a dip dye tag. I also added an arrow word tab to the left of my photo.

I tucked one of the fussy cut flowers underneath the right hand side of my photo and then added a white azalea and a red gardenia to create a pretty flower cluster. You can also see here one of the wooden heart buttons that I added to my layout.

Another one of my all time favourite D-lish embellies are the wordfetti and minifetti sheets! They are perfect for adding little words and phrases to your layouts, and I use them all the time! Here you can see one of the words from the black minifetti sheet.

Well that's it from me for this month! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my layouts over the past few days. I hope that I've inspired you to play along with one of our current Cybercrop challenges and/or our Inspiration Board challenge! Until next month, happy scrapping!
