The Greatest Gift

If we're talking about gifts, and before I get into the details of this layout, you should go and check out my current giveaway here - especially if you love Two Peas :-)

I've been saving my favourite layout from my June adventures with The Girl's Paperie Jubilee collection until last. I loved working with this 'kit' for Handmade by Suzanne - the colours and patterns are just so me!!

I'm totally digging giving my background some subtle details with tone-on-tone designs. It's just that making white stencilled cherry blossoms on cream/yellow paper is a little bit too subtle, so I outlined the desings with black pen to give them a little pop.

The delicious flowers I used here are by Prima, they're called Love Note - Celebrate and they coordinated so well. I was pleasantly surprised to find in this single packet of flowers a mix of plain and printed paper flowers, as well as the crochet ones. I also made some of my own out of May Arts pleated satin ribbon and I had an instant eclectic mix of flowers which I simply threw down on my page. Easy done!

I made this page about an ordinary everyday moment of my girls eating apples out of the orchard. A good wholesome moment though! I journaled some thoughts for them about persuing all this life has to offer them, and not to take our blessings for granted. Remember how I made a resolution to write more 'meaningful' journaling on my pages? Prime example :-)


  1. Congrats on keeping to a resolution, I'm sure your girls will also benefit! What a beautiful, soft and serene page.
