Beautiful. The title of this page could not be more fitting.  You know I love orchids and this one came to join my collection as a Christmas present.  It is simply beautiful.

I put this layout together using the cut apart sheet in my counterfeit kit.  I like the look of the thrown down pile of papers with the photos on top - it's amazing how hard it is to get the random thrown down look!!

I added some rub ons (also from my kit) and used up the last of my white seam binding from Crafty Ribbons.  I think I need to place an order soon!  (Uh oh!  There are 124 colours to chose from!!)

Lastly I added a snippet from the cut off strip from the bottom of one of the 12x12 papers and a gorgeous bird wood veneer.  I wish I could remember where it came from.  I don't remember purchasing it so it was either part of a give-away or a freebie with a magazine.

Linking up at Inspire me Mondays and Counterfeit Kit Challenge.


  1. Beautiful Orchid and a beautiful LO.

    Hope you've had a good start to the week. Sue

  2. I totally get how much you have to fiddle with the pieces to get them to look random - this looks fabulous!

  3. :) Great job with that "thrown down" look! :) Love how you wrap it up with a neat little bow! Great page!

    I love orchids too. I had a pretty large collection before I became pregnant with my eldest son. I gave them all to a fellow member of a local orchid society that I belonged to. Good thing because I seem to struggle taking care of my two hardy house plants these days! :)

  4. Beautiful layout, love the bird chipboard. I agree it is hard to pull off the random thrown down look. It you did it
