James - D-Lish June challenge

Wow! Amanda has done it again over at D-Lish. I don't buy a lot of  scrapbooking stuff atm as my room is stuffed to overflowing & I am trying REEAALLLY hard to use what I have but every month (when I am quick enough, as they sell out fast!) the D-Lish JAP kit is my little splurge. They are just such brilliant value! And every month I think it can't get any better and it just does :D
I have already finished 2 lo's using my kit and a third is forming quite quickly in my mind. This one is for their challenge...
This is a photo of my grandfather as a boy and I thought the colours were perfect for a more masculine lo and I could still use the flowers. I also used up some more of the Basic Grey papers on my desk. (You can't really see it in my photo but there is also some grey stamping in the background) Personally, I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.
Anyhoo, thanks for looking & have a great day..Jx

  3. Beautiful! The b&w photo really shines and the flower embellishments add just the perfect touch. I'm a fan of the paper strips too.

  5. I still have a bit of that BG weave paper. I love how you chose to use it! Your clusters, splatters, stamping, stitching and sequins really make the page come together. I agree, it turned out great!
