This is a 12"x12" layout I did of my grandparents. They are my father's parents and this was taken at their 50th wedding reunion. That was quite a few years ago and they are still together. All the patterned paper is from The Rustic Stack by DCWV and all the solid paper is from The Shimmer Stack by DCWV. The piece of floral patterned paper is cut at 11 1/2"x9." The yellow patterned paper is cut at 11"x7." The circle is the same patterned paper as the 12"x12" background, it was cut using George and Basic Shapes at 9." The photo is 5 5/8"x4." I matted it twice, with pink patterned paper and the same yellow patterned paper as the large rectangle. The mats are 1/4" larger than the previous layer. I used Mother's Day Boquet for the flowers. The yellow one is made with layers that are 3," 2 1/2" and 2." I used some rust colored pearls for the center of the flower and pop-dots to adhere it. The blue-green flower is made with layers cut at 2 1/2," 2 1/4," 2" and 1 3/4." I embossed it with the Textile folder, used pop-dots to piece the layers together and a large gold pearls for the flower center. The orange flower is made from layers that are 3," 2 3/4," 2 1/2," 2 1/4" and 2." I embossed it with the Victoria folder and used some pale blue-green pearls for the center of the flower. I used some blue-green paper for the title, which is cut at 1 1/2" using Stone Script. I cut the leafy vine from Cindy Loo, at 5" and the fit to length feature, it is also cut using the same blue-green paper.
