I always matt or define the edges of my photo's but because I thought this collection to be quite graphic I thought I'd try something different!I started with a pink cardstock base and after placing my photo's where I wanted them I then cut the patterend papers to fit right up to them without leaving any space. At first I was going to place my title across the middle but thought it looked so much better in the space it is now!I painted the ScrapFX flourish with Adirondack Dabber & the bloom centres are Kaiser Rhinestones

This layout was quite quick to create.I started off cutting a large peice of orange cardstock & placing it off centre to the left. Then cutting several strips of various papers from the collection & framing my photo's. Note how I framed the right side of the photo's using the orange on the aqua. The circles are punched using a 1 1/4" punch & are raised using 3D pads, the centres of the blooms are Kaiser Rhinestones.

This photo of DGD Olivia just had to be showcased with not much else on the page, but I still wanted it to be a bit girlie.I handcut the shapes from the patterend paper, (I love the lace effect this created) before placing on the black background.The fancy corner was then cut from one of the elements from the die-cut sheet & I used 3D pads to create some dimension, I finished off with my title using Pink Paisley Holly Doodle aqua & white alpha stickers, a few strips of patterend paper & another die-cut shape holds my journalling & is tucked under my photo.

5. Add a glitter strip down the edge of your Blissful paper, if you don't want to use all of your stip cut out two small sections to cover the areas that you want.
