My first 12x12 layout using Basic Greys Curio papers

So, I recently went to my first crop/class  and made my first layout-this is where we went as far as in the class-
 AnnaMarie showed us how to make these box flowers using the design paper...
 Folded back corners using brads from the collection and faux stitching...
This is what I brought home...
 I then made a second smaller flowers and titled the layout "A perfect memory" using stickers I had from the collection...
 I added a quote "Today I marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love...."
 I added a few more stickers and the photos are of my Uncle and Aunts wedding 40 years ago-I printed them in sepia to match the papers...
 I then bought this 12x12 layout frame and painted it a light cream colour...
I gave this to Seamus and Tessie for their anniversary present! Happy anniversary again :) x

I'm going to enter my finished piece for the by the cute and girly May challenge which is "Anything goes" CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS
