Creative Layouts

Just when you thought there wasn't anything left in the pack, out they come!  How good is the mix in these layouts?  It really is amazing to see just how much you can get from a pack, and this one certainly is no exception.  Scroll on down and check them all out.
We Love You by Anita Bownds (CT)
Anita's scalloped border punch ties in the theme of the pp block, not to mention the little feathered friend..  Adding a bit below the photo and along the side of the pp has given it balance.  The little cutout and sticker birds further compliment the theme.
Looking closely you will see embossing on the black cardstock and doodling along the edge of the pink frame.
In this one we can see the added detail of the flower layers from the button down to the half pleated flower - or a fan.  The velvet bow blends in nicely with the flower, with a bit more embossing and some delicate cutouts.  Well done Anita, very nice indeed.
Rachel & Scott by Angie Wenke
Angie has used lots of white space against the black background and pink photo block.  The delicate little hearts and decorative edges are a softening touch, with thin strips of pp adding clean sharp lines.  I'm sure there's more to the story if you're cashed up, but I'm not asking!!  Well done Angie.
Ellen Mary Circa 1912 by Di Corbitt
Di has used her layout with strong pinks as a contrast to the B&W photo. The deep pink embossing and handmade flowers tie in together nicely, with the white trim and lace flower drawing the eye into the softness of the photo. Given the era of this photo I'd say Di has done well to to work these colours in with such a nice effect.
Be Mine by Beth Metcalf
Beth has also chosen to work with the deeper pink as the background for her photo.  Bordering the doily cutouts on the black glitter separates the two strip designs nicely, which also works in well with the smaller hearts and flag strips, which are all mounted on black.  A bit of Dimensional Magic adds shine, and the red velvet ribbon below the photo makes a nice statement.  Very nice Beth.

What a great mix of styles using this pack. If your curiosity has been tweaked, you have until Pumpkin Time tomorrow to get one in!!  Go on....................

Thanks everyone, loving what I'm seeing.
