Here we all are at our 2nd annual retreat at Debden House in Essex. Two days of scrapbooking fun :-)
The papers are from the Two Scoops collection by Basic Grey - I loved this collection so much I bought up all the sheets I could find when it was discontinued ...... and I still have a lot of them ...... need to use them up! The title is cut on the robo, in two colours, I put the blue on the page first, didn't like it, so put the green on top but offset just a little - gives a nice shadow effect which hasn't come out as well in the photo as it has in reality. The two punched strips are done using EK Success punches - the blue with the scroll chain and the green with the circle chain. The scroll chain had some interesting waste pieces which I added to each end, together with some pearls. But I wasn't quite happy with it, so when the flourish dies arrived yesterday I added a couple of those as well - had to move the waste pieces at the left side - thank goodness for repositionable herma LOL. Thank you to Scrappy Sarah for the button from her fabulous button jar :-)
The whole thing still seemed to be 'floating' so I added a plain frame in the blue cardstock to enclose it all and am really pleased with the effect!
