A Great Day Layout

As you can see I have a layout to share today using gorgeous, gorgeous Webster's Pages papers from their Sunday Picnic range.  I've used two of the papers from the collection here as I couldn't decide which to use so cut the scallop circle down so that I could use both!  Appropriately the photo was actually taken on a Sunday picnic we had on what was probably the last sunny day we had back in May.
There is a whole sheet of tags on one of the papers and I'm so in love with them!  I have another layout ready to share and one more I'm half way through that have them on too!  The little resin rose in the corner is by Kaisercraft.
 I've added lots of hand cut elements from the papers along with some butterflies and punched flowers.  I'm really loving fussy cutting elements from the papers as it means I get to put lots on without using too many precious embellishments from my stash lol!  Do you hoard your stash??  My hubby shakes his head in dismay as I have lots of gorgeous papers and embellishments and don't use them as I don't want to use them all up and then want them for another project lol!!  I'm getting better though and s-l-o-w-l-y starting to use bits and pieces and I've promised myself I'm actually going to use all the gorgeous Webster's Pages I have instead of drooling on them lol!
 I added some bling to the edge of the picnic basket and some jute twine where the balloons are tied to the basket for a fun 3D element.
 The flower and circle on the balloons were cut from the reverse of the picnic basket paper underneath where the scallop circle is - you should see the back of this layout - it is such a mess where I have cut bits out lol!  The resin butterfly is also from Webster's Pages.
 The gorgeous lace peeping out from under the flowers was a gift from my lovely friend Louise.  The blow flowers were punched from some of the paper with Martha Stewart's hydrangea punch and the pearls in the centres are from Whiff of Joy.
 You can only just tell in the photo but I've added glossy accents to the bottles - love doing that to glass objects on my projects.
 I've also added it to all the balloons to give them a gorgeous shiney balloon effect!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Oh Jane your LO is absollutly gorgeous.
I love ALL the papers and embelishments, just so nice. The photo is so lovely too.
Can see the glossy accents clearly on the baloons what a great idea, are they die cut?
Can you tell me how you did the white letters. It looks like you have stamped "A great Day", but is it with a certain ink.
Have a great day and look forward to seeing more pages. Debbiex
