Hi! Jo here!! I have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Sydney catching up with friends and family and celebrating my younger brother’s wedding.  One of the wonderful things about this visit was being able to sit around with family and reminisce over old photographs and fun times gone by.  I was therefore thrilled to find this wonderful chipboard title from Molossi on my return, just screaming for me to pull out photographs from my own childhood and scrapbook.

I’ve kept the treatment fairly simple for this layout as the photographs already had plenty going on and I wanted space for handwritten journaling.  I’ve simply used a sheet of white cardstock which I added faux stitching around the outer edge to.  The paper is from Kaisercraft and I’ve used a Martha Stewart border punch down the right hand edge and then inked the entire sheet.

One photograph I’ve cropped slightly smaller than the others and this one is actually mounted on foam tape, the other two adhered directly to the patterned paper.  Die Cut stickers from the same range of papers from Kaisercraft is mounted on foam tape with some organza ribbon tied around the base, the branches and birds simply adhered direct to paper.  Add some flowers and bling from Kaisercraft and a flower paper clip from Bella and a few snippets of ric rac and the basis of the layout is complete.

The chipboard title,  Still Your Daddys Girl , from Molossi needed little attention as the beautiful differing fonts make it stand out on it’s own.  I’ve simply painted this in black acrylic paint and adhered to the top right of my layout.  I think you’d agreed it is the first thing your eye is drawn to and hopefully tells the story of the layout.
With a fine black marker I have then handwritten my journaling in the bottom right corner of the layout.

Your Still Daddy's Girl
