I have always loved silhouettes - the above layout I did a couple of years ago and used a silhouette that my mother had done of me when I was small. (Also notice the Laura Ashley ribbon.) My mother loved cameos, and I inherited 3 absolutely beautiful ones from her. When I worked as an accountant and had to dress "appropriately" for the job, I used to wear all 3 at one time on my jacket lapel - that always got compliments!
The next 2 layouts are ones done with Harlee-Quinnz Designs papers - the purple is from the Butterfly Garden collection and the cool paper with the blue and white pitcher is from the Scents Remember collection. This year has been a bumper crop for Pears, which I love!!!! they are so plentiful, inexpensive, and so delicious. I love to just eat them or make pear/walnut/blue cheese salads with viniagrette. YUM!
For the Purple layout, I used a Prima flower, some flowers from Michaels, a yo yo made from Liberty fabric, an old button card, some funky see through netting, a piece of paper stamped with a Harlee-quinnz mandala stamp, a dictionary page, a jewelry pendant from Michaels, a tea ad, some ribbons, and a little dollsize belt buckle. I took the photo last summer at the Biltmore in North Carolina.
For the Pears layout, I used a wallpaper sample from Anthropologie, vintage lace, Starbucks card, doily, Prima flowers, handmade silk ribbon flower with beads, old MM letters, old Lil Davis letters, and a tag from a jewelry pendant (see Purple layout) from Michaels.
I am off to work - got lots to do today.
