Celebrate Layout {Berry71Bleu} Studio 75 Poland

* Copied over from the Berry71Bleu blog where I posted on Monday *

Hello there!  Helen here with my monthly project
for Berry71Bleu!  Isn't my tag just the cutest?!  Just
like my little girl {well she is a 'tween' now so not so
little any more!}.  Here's a look at the tag I was sent.

I used the beautiful "Summer & Latte" papers from our
Polish sponsor this month, Studio 75.

All the chipboard that you see on this layout also 
comes from Studio 75.  See their blog HERE.

I embellished with die-cuts from Pink Paislee 'Soiree' collection,
which really helped bring out the colours and add some 'zing'!

I used the new Donna Downey for Prima 'Poppies & Peonies'
stencil on my white cardstock base & hand journaled my story.

I used 4 different patterned papers from Studio 75 on this layout.
One to matt the photo, one as a punched strip, one as my base &
one for the border around the layout.  I inked all the edges to give
some depth & a bit more variation as the papers are beautifully subtle.

I used a metallic pen to doodle the circles around the edge of my
white cardstock and a thick 'Creative Memories' pen to create the
dots around the border of my photograph.  I hope you enjoyed my
page today & that your week is going well for you so far!
