moments and memories | by Nicolee Cable

 Good Morning!!
Hoping your week has started well!

Well, I've decided to do a layout that I'm not so good at - Christmas!
Don't ask me why, but when it comes to Christmas photos - I balk and freeze and don't enjoy them!
Problem solved - go with a completely un-festive colour palette! 
Well that's what I chose to do with this layout.

My layout was very quick and easy to create.
With the background soft lime green paper, I then grabbed some scraps of wood-look paper and other off-cut elements (cork scallops and paper strips) and then the embellishments were easily placed into clusters, just like that!

This wooden wreath is perfect and looks so cute with this little pick n place bow on top!

I grabbed about 4 stamens and then folded them in half and poked them under the flair button.  Isn't the flair cute!! At the time I wondered how I would use this cute christmas tree flair but when I pulled it out - it's found its home!
I've used quite a few different sized leaves in both clusters.

I popped this mini white resin flower into this metal cabochon frame and it fits perfectly.  A twisting of this mini leaves wire, a fold and tuck of the stamens, a couple of resin flowers and enamel dots and voila! Cluster complete!

Isn't this wooden deer button adorable!  Sometimes when I buy things, I'm not quite sure how I'll use it but I can't just pass it up!  It's perfect for this layout.

My journalling is also my title.  I cut up the strip from the bottom of a page and staggered it next to the photo.

Here are the embellishments used:

Check out the store for all your embellishment goodies and I'd love to see what you create.
Have a wonderful week.

See you around
