BOUQUET OF LOVE ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #25}


Another busy weekend behind me, hosting two scrapbooing days (Saturday and Sunday) in a row here at my studio.  It was great fun with such wonderfully friendly ladies and gents and it was also great meeting quite a few new eager scrapbookers.  A huge thank you also to my dearest friend Michelle for flying all over South Afirca to assist me with my {Doing Life} scrap events.

This week our theme for Challenge #25 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is a Lots of Layers (at least 2).  I used a Bugaboo digi image called Flower Jar.  You can find it here.   

Once again using my favourite step card technique, this is what I created. .  The design papers were from BasicGrey. 

The purple parts of the image was paper pieced.  I printed the image once on white cardstock and then a second time on purple design paper.  Then I cut out the flower and leaf sections from the purple design paper and mounted them with foam tape on top of the printed image on the white cardstock.

I cropped a flower from the original image and printed it a few times on white cardstock and coloured them with dry chalks to use as the flower embellishments.

Hope you like and will all play along this week and we cant wait to see what you create with our Lots of Layers theme. So hop on over to Tammy's Scrapin Corner and link your creation to Challenge #25.
