Sisters 12x 12

Dreams do come true and I have a photo to prove it: my girls hugging and looking like they really like each other!  If I  wasn't the one taking the photo I wouldn't believe it, I would think it was photoshopped. This photo was taken about a year ago and is a favourite so I had to pay tribute by giving it it's very own page.  I looked at their outfits - pink and purple -  and decided on the Lap of Luxury DSP which has a colour scheme of Concord Crush, Very Vanilla, Basic Grey and Pretty in Pink.  I do really love this paper, it kind of looks like fabric.  I went with Pink Pirouette instead of Pretty in Pink because it matched Lila's shirt better.  I used nearly a whole sheet of paper for the background (told you I wasn't hoarding anymore) and then some strips of DSP and Concord Crush across the page under the photo.  I wanted some happy flowers so I went to my Island Floral Die and my Boho Blossoms and Fancy Flower Punches and layered them all together with buttons and brads.  I thought the flowers looked just a little plain so I decided to stamp them in versamark with the large stamp from the Style Beautiful set, just to add a bit of interest - it made all the difference.  You can see the what I mean in the 2 close up photos below the main one.
