Hello everyone.

It's that time again for the CHEERY LYNN DESIGNS weekly challenge.  The challenge for this week is "Red and Green".  This is a favourite photo of mine.  It is of me and my eldest son Alex.  I think I am getting quite used to getting a project done and on time!  I hope you like this layout I have put together.

I started off using the VICTORIAN ROMANCE FLOURISH and then stacked the flowers up and over.  I made the flowers by using the STACKER FLOWERS #2 with the STACKER FLOWER LEAF #1,  CHERRY BLOSSOM FLOWERS and JUDY'S BLOOMS completed the rest.  

The papers I used in this creation were from Graphic 45 (one of my favourites) Playtimes Past Collection.  Jack and Jill and Life's a ball were the main two papers that were used and then I used left over papers from my stash.

I used the SMALL DRAGON FLY,  cutting the under wings in vellum using the ANGEL WINGS that came with dragon fly die.  I added to small bling for the eyes.

As you can see in this photo I curled the petals up and down in various was to give them a three dimensional aspect.  I did the same with the leaves and then inked all around with Tim Holts ink.  Finally I used half of the ENGLISH TEA PARTY DOILY up on the top right of this layout.

If you haven't already seen these amazing dies head on over to CHEERY LYNN DESIGNS and have a look.  You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stoping by
