Hi ladies, Cathy here with a LO to share.  I love vibrant colours and red is one of my favourites.  As I was looking through my stash, the Belle mixed flowers pack jumped out at me and was the inspiration for this LO.  I have used a mix of products from the Spring and Winter 2013 collections.

Be True To Yourself

To draw the eye to my photo I have clustered some of the flowers from the Belle pack with a beautiful white Camelia, Krystal flowers and medium light green leaves.  I am always on the lookout for jewellery items which I can recycle and have used a gorgeous rhinestone flower recycled from a necklace which I purchased at my local op shop to alter the folded fabric flower.  I just removed the pearl centre from the folded fabric flower and replaced with bling flower which I adhered with a strong quick drying glue.

I created another smaller cluster on the right hand side of my LO, which flows into my title.  I cut down the Believe flexible word to make the word “Be” and used the pretty lace heart from the Hearts and Butterflies Lace pack to highlight the words for the rest of my title.

I love the MHC frames as they can be used whole or cut down into smaller pieces, which I have done here on my large and small clusters.  I cut the white Ornate Scallop Frame into two, one piece slightly larger than the other and backed the inner circle of the frame with pp.  Just use a pencil to trace the inner circle onto your pp, then cut about 3mm around the penciled line.  Adhere with glue to the back of the frame.
