FANtastic Layout by Narelle

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Narelle, has created a gorgeous layout to share today.
I hope you enjoy it. Narelle has used the lovely Doodle Deux Collection from Prima.

1.  For this layout, the paper pieces have been inked twice, firstly with the "tattered rose" distress ink in quite a heavy inking, and then lightly on the edge with the "Victorian Velvet" ink.
2.  Trim the "one up" paper to 25cm x 25cm and adhere in the centre of the "alpha bytes" paper.
3.  Trim a piece from the centre of the "button-up paper" (grid side), to measure 12.5cm x 18cm. 
4.  Trim a piece 10cm x 15cm from the "doodle bits" (orange side) and adhere to the bottom edge of the grid paper. 
5.  Recycle the packaging from the flowers by trimming the backing piece to 5cm high (with the shaped end), and adhere on the orange paper. 
6.  Using the offcuts of the "one-up" paper, cut a strip 21cm x 2.5 cm and trim the ends to look like a ribbon.  Adhere over the join between the orange paper and backing cardstock.  (see picture)

7.  Adhere to the left side of the layout with foam tape.  Add a 10x15cm photo with foam mounting tape.
8.  Cut some blossom flowers from the "Doodle bits" and "Button-up" paper. 
9.  Cluster the cut flowers, the roses, leaves and Lucerne flowers on the two bottom corners of the photo.
10.  For the top right corner of the layout, trim the shaped edge from another recycled packaging.  Add a piece of the orange "doodle bits" paper that measures 8cm x 3cm, and a pink offcut from the "one-up" paper that measures 1.5cm x 10cm.  Add a cluster of flowers and leaves, and a couple of birds cut from the "Button up" paper.
11.  Finish the layout with a title in the lower left corner.
