Selfies with Mum - by DT Sandra Scott

Good morning everyone, Sandra here with a layout from the My Mind's Eye Hooray Collection from the Shop and Crop Store.
I chose my photos to suit the collection and I was lucky enough to have a few of these gorgeous selfies of my granddaughter and her daughter.  

The photos were so playful I wanted to add some fun on the background so used one of my favourite stencils from TCW with another product that I love and you can find in the Shop and Crop Store - Colour Blast Paste.

I matted my photos with the patterned paper and fussy cut one of the sheets with all those gorgeous circles which I felt blended with the circles of the stencil.  
I layered some strips on the top and bottom of the page to make it feel more grounded.  
I'm loving gold at the moment so added some narrow gold washi tape from my stash and finished with the gold alpha.

Here are the close-ups.

My second layout with the same range was for an adult birthday celebration.

Similar to the first one I layers strips of paper to the bottom of the page including my pink washi tape (loving the bling) and to bling it up a little more I sprinkled glitter on the background under my photo.  

I cut the tags with a die and layered them above the photo as well as fussy cutting some circles for under the photo.

I coloured the wooden embellishments with Brilliance Gold Ink.
