I decided to use the lovely Prima Alla-Prima Collection to create the layout using this photograph taken in 2000 of Lucy and Jamie as the colours match so well.
I used Bazzill French Vanilla as the base and using a template I cut the shape from Alla-Prima Composition patterned paper. I gutted the middle so I could use this to mat the photograph. I cut a square of patterned paper using Alla-Prima Ferrulle (used the reverse side) and a strip from the same paper (dotted side), layering them up. The photograph was first matted onto Bazzill French Vanilla, then the Alla-Prima Composition patterned paper.
The flowers are the gorgeous Alla-Prima Flower Market range and they compliment the patterned papers beautifully. I made the title from American Craft Thickers (Jewelry Box) in white, which I inked using a Jenni Bowlin dye ink pad in Spice Tin. I cut a 'blurb' box using the Cricut and Plantin SchoolBook cartridge, added the words ' close, don't let me go' to complete the title.
