The Paper Variety {Movie Inspiration!} It's a Gift Layout







After two very LONG posts yesterday (catching up after the Blogger shutdown) I am flying in here with a quickie!  I am probably too late to be considered as a Spotlight fave at The Paper Variety as I am meant to have my layout linked there by "Sunday Evening" but not sure of whose Sunday evening...I am hoping they mean Sunday evening EST or even better PST or MST - American times - as hopefully then I am okay then...

***I am also entering this at The Shabby Tea Room as I ruffled it up for their latest challenge***

So the challenge was to create a layout inspired by a movie title!  Here's my inspiration...


And here is my layout.


Almost all Basic Grey Curio, with the pleating done using Studio Calico's "Fabrips" (sticky-backed fabric strips - fabulous!)  I will put this one up again later in the week, together with all the close-ups & supplies list - I was really happy with how it turned out & I got through it pretty quickly too.  That seems to happen when I am using the fab sketches from Inspired Blueprints - they are brilliant!!!

Wishing all my bloggy friends a wonderful week - work hard, create something every day, I know I will :)

Love the muted tones and 'softness' on this LO, even tho it's masculine one, it's still 'pretty'. Does that make sense?

Great going Helen x
