You & Me


Sometimes a layout doesn't need a story. Sometimes it captures a lifetime in a moment. Sometimes the photo and the title are enough.

Though some pretty paper doesn't hurt... ;)

Papers from Echo Park, Cosmo Cricket and Amy Tangerine; Thickers from my rather depleted Thickers stash...

This post was brought to you by Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party and the Fifty Four Forty or Fight quilting pattern

I love the design of this page - it's really fab. The colours are so cheerful and the whole page looks happy - just like the smiling faces in your photo.

I laughed at your comment about your "rather depleted" thickers stash!

Cheri said...

You are absolutely right. That photo stands alone.

Beautiful! I was a little afraid of the quilt prompt, but after seeing your page it looks like it's worth making the effort.

Great picture. And FANTASTIC page. I admired the quilt prompt and then deleted it - LOL!

Lovely photo and a great effect with the patchwork.

Stunning, did you do the patchwork or was it on the pp, either way it stands out beautifully and enhances the photo

There is something I love about the fact that you are in the middle of a star looking outwards.

Maybe you should take up quilting, this is lovely and I love that it's bright, of course the photo is the very best part. And why I wonder is your Thickers stash getting depleted lol
