Oh my...I dug into the Melrose kit. I thought I loved gold, but now I'm obsessed with it. And the kit is filled with so many of the newest products that just make you drool. Sometimes when I see a really pretty pattern paper, I find I want to hoard it instead of using it...so I challenged myself to use this beautiful background paper with the doilies from Maggie Holmes' Crate Paper line as the jumping point to this frilly layout.
Other than being frilly, I kept it simple. I cut banners from the gold polka dot vellum, and that inspired more banners to layer.
I also love this photo, and wanted it to take center stage. It was just me and my daughter for a few days and those are sometimes my favorite days. I had wanted to scrap it after I took it. And this was the perfect kit for it.
Have a great week and hope you are enjoying this kit!
