When I was sent these American Crafts Dear Lizzie Enchanted papers to use I was instantly drawn to this gorgeous varnished accent paper. I loved the pattern and wanted that to be a major part of my page, so I decided to use it as my background paper. Leaving it whole was a bit too overpowering so I trimmed it slightly and then cut it into three sections, letting the pattern continue after each gap. I used the sewing machine to add some stitching around each section to add some extra detail. I kept the rest of the page very simple and tried to keep everything contained around the photo. I am not a great one for adding journalling to my pages partly as I don’t like seeing my own writing but also I don’t always know what I want to say so hidden journalling always works well for me. On this page I have got Emily to document her thoughts on the memories this photo brings, I really like getting the girls to journal on my pages (it means I don’t have to do it!!). I think that in years to come it will be lovely to have their thoughts documented.
