Hi everyone!

Today I have a layout to share with you that I created using the beautiful 'Willow' kit!

I absolutely love the gorgeous colours and the beautiful florals in this kit, and it was perfect for documenting this lovely photo of my Mum with my son.

The pattern on my Mum's top matched perfectly with the dark teal boho patterned paper, so I decided to feature this patterned paper by adding a strip of it across the page. I also cut the scallop border strip off one of the solid color papers and tucked this under the bottom edge of the patterned paper. I think this adds a lovely detail and finishes it off nicely.

I decided to add my photo, title, and embellishments in a vertical design down the middle of the page.

I love the floral patterned paper in the kit, and it was just calling to be fussy cut, so of course I did! I tucked one of the fussy cut florals under the top edge of the patterned paper. When I adhered it, I only added glue to the centre of it, as I wanted the edges of the flowers to lift off the page. This helps to give them some dimension and movement. I also used the 'Willow' stamp set to stamp the phrase 'Happy Day' three times at the top of the page.

Moving down the page, I adhered my photo so that it was half overlapping the patterned paper. I added foam tape underneath the photo to give it some extra height and dimension. I then layered two of the 3x4 journaling cards, using one of the cute rose gold paperclips to keep them together, and tucked them under the right hand side of the photo. The puffy stickers in this kit are so soft and beautiful, and I just had to add one of the little hearts to the journaling card on the top.

I think I might be addicted to fussy cutting these beautiful florals! I love the way this one looks tucked under the side of the photo.

To create my title, I teamed together the lovely coral puffy alphabet stickers from the 'Willow' kit along with the 'Sophie' alphabet stickers. I often like to combine different alphas in my titles, as I think it adds some extra interest to the layout.

Underneath my title I added some typed journaling, which I cut into strips, and then lastly at the bottom of the page, I adhered one of the lovely branding strips off one of the patterned papers.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! I hope that you enjoyed taking a closer look at my layout. I'll be back next week to share another project using the lovely 'Willow' kit!
