'Family Togetherness' Layout by Narelle

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Narelle has created a lovely layout to share with you today. I hope you enjoy it.

1.    Trim the Kraft cardstock to 28cm x 28cm and adhere in the centre of the dark brown cardstock.
2.    Trim the striped paper to 24.5cm x 13.5cm and adhere onto the brown paper measuring 25cm x 14cm.  Stick on the Kraft cardstock base, at an angle on the left side of the layout.
3.    Trace a ring on the green paper, lightly ink the edges with a dark brown ink and adhere on the right side of the layout as pictured.
4.    Trim the cream script paper to 12.5cm x 26cm and adhere to the brown paper measuring 13cm x26.5cm, add to the layout in the lower held, on an angle.
5.    Add a 6x4 photo under the blue chipboard frame, and add to the centre of the layout, on the left side.
6.    Select some words from the “Fresh Verse” sheets and mat on brown paper before adhering to the right side of the layout.  Use the Helmar scrap dots under one of the words to add dimension.
7.    Select one of the scalloped borders from the cardstock stickers and adhere to the chipboard frame.  Use scrapdots at the ends where it hangs off the chipboard frame.
8.    Add the chipboard flourish in the left corner below the frame, and re-use the negative pieces from the flourish in the top right of the layout.
9.    Select some flowers from the flower kit and lightly fold the petals to give dimension before adding to the layout as shown.  Add a button with some twine tied through it to the centre of the flowers.
10.    Add a few birds or leaves from the chipboard shapes back and your layout is complete!
