Cherish by Yvonne Blair featuring Now and Then


 Happy New Year everyone! Yvonne here to share a little Now and Then. This line is so perfect for those everyday moments.  I was doing a photo shoot with my daughter Breanna and I knew when I saw the pictures they would be a perfect fit.  The photos on this layout aren't perfect, but they represent my sweet girl.  It was windy, her hair was blowing around and the sun was hitting her, but I LOVE these pictures.  They are so her. I had to incorporate them into a layout.  
I cut the Woodgrain paper (which is the blue lattice) to about 7 x 12.  After I used a border punch (American Crafts) down the left side, I curled the paper back on itself.  I really like dimension in my books.  I added some pop dots so that it would stay dimensional.  Using the Decorative brads from Now and Then I attached the folded layers down.  I then cut a 4 x 12 piece of the Words paper and adhered it down in about the center of the page. Using the Die Cut Flowers, I stacked then and attached them using a decorative brad as well.  To finish off the layout I added some embellies from the sticker sheet, a ticket from the border strips and a half of a doily.  (You probably noticed by now I have a very hard time not using doilies, lol)I


 Here area  couple of closeups so you can see the layers and dimensions.  

I hope you enjoyed and were inspired to include those not so perfect photos in your scrapbooking.  They are after all "real" life.  HEHEHE.  
Looking forward to the next time I can share something with you.  Until then, I will be working hard on some new stuff with Teresa' new lines! You are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE Them!
