Worlds Greatest!

Good morning crafters!

I hope you are all well. Today i want to share with you, a layout i made of my fabulous Mum and Dad mashAllah.  I took this photo of them last summer when we visited a Heritage Park and when i saw it, i just knew that it was going to end up in my scrapbooking album!

Anyway, the paper i chose is from Echo Park Dots & Stripes collection (Peony small dots) and the colour is a perfect match for my Mum and Dad's top and shirt.  I dont think they realised at the time that they were matching! The tree with the two little birds is from Dusty Attic and i coloured it with Tim Holtz distress inks and added some pink pearls for a touch of glamour.  The die cuts are from Tim Holtz.  The flowers i made using a Sizzix Bigz 3d flower die and the tags were cut out from another Echo Park paper which i think is called This and That. Oh and the title is wooden words from my stash that i coloured with distress ink.

That's it! What do you think?
