Welcome Back Mojoholder

This week's see's the return of Mojoholder after our Christmas break. I have missed creating my weekly DT pages. This is challenge #93. See the sketch & the rest of the design team's versions on mojoholders blog We selected a piece by Becky Novacek. Now you will probably think my design looks nothing like the original but that is all part of ScrapLifting. Taking an idea & working your own magic with your supplies. I was so inspired by the shapes & colours so I wanted a pretty girlie page. The problem with this decision was I had no pretty girlies to scrap... enter teamie Pauline with two adorably gorgeous daughters, Hayley & Iona. I added soft focus to the photo so it drew the eye directly to there smiling faces.
Once the page was together in rough I attached it to the front of a 25cm square deep canvas because I thought it would make Pauline & her family a nice gift. Materials list is below.

Bazzill Basics card, Mauve Ice cut into a semi circle. Paper & heart is Pink Paislee, Office Lingo, Lunch Hour & die cut. Embellishments; K&Co Amy Butler Ephemera, Fabric brad & floral butterfly. Melissa Frances Lace. Basic Grey, Sultry Chipboard swirl. American Crafts, Flair Friends adhesive badge, Cute. Blossoms mix from Prima & Dunhelm. Versamagic Chalk ink Pink Petunia. Papermania flat back pearls. Silver photo corner, unknown supplier. I am quite pleased with this piece & it was hard to part with.
