September 2014 Magical Mid Month Reveal.

Hello there :)

So it is that time of the month all ready
Scrap Around The World

has created a magical fairytale mood board for us this month....
It is just so sweet, and I'm sure you all agree!

Beautiful isn't it!

And here is my layout...
Now, I have had this Maja Design paper in my stash for some time now 
and just couldn't bring myself to use it.....It is just soooo pretty...until now!!
I didn't want to cover it's prettiness in a lot of stuff, so I have just added a little subtle texture
by using gesso and a kaisercraft stamp & also some Metallic Melts.
The stunning little miss in my layout is 'Ayva', a friends daughter and she kindly gave me permission to use her gorgeous photo's .......Thank You, Sarah!

A big thank you to Miss Annette Edmonds for giving me that stunning big flower from her stash
I love how it 
I have used leaf ribbon, kaisercraft stamp and buttons from
