Fussy cutting

This Echo Park paper just screamed out 'cut me up' so I did lol! Victoria Gardens is such a very pretty paper with gorgeous details. The photo is of my beautiful dd on New Year's Eve last year when we always go down to Fremantle and watch the final sunset of the year. I captured her in a very tranquil moment. I must apologise for the first photo, doesn't really show the true colours, not very good light this morning and I took these with my phone as my SLR is buried in the robe with 1000's of Christmas presents on top - oops!

EP Victoria Gardens 'Rose Garden' Bazzill,  Kaiser Bling, Kaiser Pearls, Collection Butterflies, DA Lamp Post, Leaf ribbon and TH Distress Ink.
Distressing was done with the wonderful Ingvild Bolme distresser, such a MUST have tool for any scrapper, LOVE it!

I used Cotton Candy stickles and outlined all the rose detail but its a bit hard to see, so much nicer IRL!

close up of my fussy cutting and stickled rose :)

Thanks for stopping on by on this Christmas Eve eve, my kids are so excited that Santa will be here in two sleeps, well my precious baby girl is the other three just humour her! We have the philosophy in our house 'Don't believe, don't receive' :)

Have a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year! Xxx



  1. Hey, thanks so much for the comment. The December Daily has been a bit of a challenge for me, but learning.

    I LOVE your layout. That paper with the flowers is gorgeous. That was a lot of work to cut those out, but I love them as a border! Just beautiful!
