I played safe with this layout and used a black and white theme, so the colours didn't clash with the background. I followed the sketch for the entire layout but added some embellishments in the 'picture area'. My photograph is quite small as I cropped out much of the background and triple layered it. I used Delish Designs patterned papers (Peppercorn Collection - Main Dish and Appetizer), added a couple of black and white flowers, pearl centres and added the title using American Crafts Thickers (Jewelry Box) in black.
This is quite a simple layout but one I could see working with several different photographs. Why not have a go yourselves - I would love to see them. If you do decide to use the sketch, please let me see a copy of what you did and I will give you an extra entry into the blog candy draw. Leave a comment and if you qualify (see rules) I will enter your name into the draw for today. Best of luck!
