In Vogue with Pink Paislee's - Vintage Vogue

Hi all :) Gems here. 

This month I got to play with the gorgeous Pink Paislee - Vintage Vogue. The girly tones are perfect for scrapping photos of my daughter and I got to work straight away on the first of my layouts....

Ashton is an avid reader and can often be found with her nose inside a book. One afternoon I popped into the kitchen and found her reading the Secret Garden and decided to snap some photos to record her love of reading. 

Purple is a colour I usually avoid in scrapbooking as I find it difficult to work with, but I challenged myself to create a layout using purple as one of the main colours, and I absolutely loved the challenge I set myself, and I am happy with the results. 


My second layout I created using the range was....

Ashton was a flowergirl for my Brother-in-law's wedding back in July and I thought these pretty, feminine papers were perfect for photos taken on the day. 

I will be back tomorrow with a couple of cards I created using the same range and a gorgeous, extremely versatile product I adored using! 

Below are the products I used.......(Simply click on the picture to take you to the product in the shop)

Gorgeous as always Gems. I'm not too fussed on purple either and I struggle to work with it, but I love how you've used it here - giving a hint works lovely.

I only like Cadburys purple, but agree with Helen, that the purple with the green works really well on this LO.

Gorgeous works. I have to add, I don't like purple, hardly use it, sometimes I might wear it but could be persuaded by your combo of purple and green.
