Today I found a great idea for making your own borders for down the sides/along the bottom of your pages. I have made a few of these myself over the years but these are very nice for pages and they look great. Hope you have a try at these lovely border embellishments.

Goodmorning Everyone,

This page has been scrapped with the beautiful Prima Time Traveller Collection. This collection of paper and embellishments is beautiful. Of course the Papers used are from the collection as is all the flowers. I also used Kaisercraft black pearls, the new Kaszazz Bow Maker which is great and comes in the large size I used on this LO, and a smaller size for cards, very versatile. Cameo by Websters, and Chalkboard Charms by Melissa Frances, a white doilie which I cut in half and sprayed with a Lindy"s Spray Ink. The chipboard word Love I painted with a light green paint and then sprinkled Black Embossing Powder over it randomly and then heated with my heat gun. I added small amount of Burlap and muslin which I sprayed with Lindy's Spray Ink, these pieces are coming out from under the flowers.

The beautiful bow made with the Kaszazz Bow maker.

A close up of the arrangement of flowers on the side of the page.

Thank you for stopping by and looking at my page.

Hi Everyone,

I have just returned from holidays. Went down to spend time with my Dad as he turned 86 this month. He is still in the very best of health good on you dad. Yesterday my Australian Scrapbook Ideas arrived and in the Your Designs Section was my first page to be published "Memories". I was so excited my very first published page. For anyone who is interested it is in on page 12 of the magazine. Thought I would post a photo of the page........

Two more pages to go....... Hope to get my mojo back and will be posting a few new pages shortly. My monthly kit from Scraps of Elegance should arrive within the next few days. Will give me all the inspiration I need. Until then.
