Today I am here to share this month’s challenge over on the Flourish with a Bling blog.

I have love Flourish with a Bling since their beginning so of course I had plenty of older layout to choose from.

A quick simple layout

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well.

Today I have a lovely quick and easy page to share with you all. Sometimes a photo calls for a simple layout and when I found this 5×7 printed photo, I simply knew that was the case here.


I have created this layout using some simple white cardstock and the fabulous Scrap Cake Bright Side of Life patterned papers and an oval doily.

I seriously love this collection and although it is probably classed as an old collection, I just cannot stop using it! I think I will cry when I run out of these papers.


To decorate the page, I have simply machine stitched around the edges of the patterned paper, then finished off with some precious Melissa Frances Shabby Resins and a gorgeous Prima Flower Vine.


The fabulous title is one of Heidi Swapp’s gorgeous title stickers. Isn’t her font just fabulous? I love her handwritten style and I especially love all her products she has released using the font.


Well that is it from me today, I hope you are all inspired by this layout and I cannot wait to share more with you tomorrow. Don’t forget to head on over to the blog post here and enter to win my fabulous new blog giveaway prize!!

Until next time, happy scrapping!
