{a layout to share!}

I have a layout on the Paper Bakery blog today, made with the June add-on kit.
 
To make the cute flower, I used the Pink Paislee scalloped ribbon from the kit that I misted with a turquoise blue color, then I just kind of twisted it in a circle and glued it down. I had a piece of twine sitting on my table that was left over from another project, so I just layered it on before adding the scrap of yellow fabric to the center  Quick and easy, and I love the look!

These super cute wood people are from last months kit, but they worked perfectly with this page of my Mom and I, so I added them along with the operators checklist (included in the June kit!) to complete my Dumbo layout.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Wow i love the flower so cute and apparently deceptively simple. What did you do on the edges of the yellow paper? Looks like tearing but still different.

Everything in your layout is so beautifully coordinated. I can't believe you made the flower with ribbon and scraps.

Great layout out and your flower is superb! I really wanted to make the best of Indigo Bleu and sort of brighten it up when I used it last week. The way you used Tweed as your base really does that!

I am so inspired every time I stop by your blog. The flower is amazing! I never would have thought to add in the twine like that. Always inspired!
