I had fun at Laura's yesterday, made a couple of quick cards tilly daydream

Scrapbook page with creativity club free downloaded paper and cousins jewellery hearts

in some ways i feel this is not one of my best scapbooking pages. but i tried to change my style after some harsh (in my opinion ) criticism  and it has made me loose confidence a bit. but i loved the downloaded papers and the subjects of course.
it was nice to use the glass hearts from Cousins jewellery too.

Roses from Mottisfont abbey in Hampshire

I really love going to the National Trust houses , fabulous for scrapbooking opportunities !
this is one i took of the lovely old English roses in Mottisfont , Hampshire.

I used the DoCrafts Capsule 12 x 12 'Festive' spots and stripes.
Also using material in the fat quarters spots and stripes to match.
I machine stitched the striped material and put the rose photo on top. The doily is die cut and heat embossed with clear ink and holographic powder to give it a dark green tinge matching the dark green leaves. i also embossed the die cut ' senses' in th same way.
I hope you like it.
