Inspiration from Resident Guest Designer - Melinda Thompson

Hello everyone,
Its Melinda Thompson back with you today to share  a layout I created with
 some beautiful 2Crafty Chipboard pieces.
"New Life"

We are expecting our 3rd precious baby this September.  This photo was taken when I was
 18 weeks (currently 21 weeks along now!) and we are all so excited and
 can't wait to meet this little one.

I fell in love with these gorgeous Polaroid Frames and thought they were perfect to frame
 and outline this photo.  I have inked it first in some pink versa mark ink and then wrapped
 washi tape over the top.  Love how the pink comes through the tape and ties in with the
rest of the colours in this layout.

I have also used 3 butterflies out of the Butterflies pack.  Simple methods used here...I have
 inked them all over with a darker Turquoise Ink and then went around the edges in a
 lighter blue ink to add depth to the butterflies.

For that something extra to add to my layout,  I used a cute Tiny Film Strip which I just
 cut in half so I could add a piece to the top of my layout and a piece to the bottom. 
All I did here was just inked it in black ink.

Hope you have been inspired today and I look forward to sharing
 more of my work with you later on.
