dont ask, dont tell ...

I am not one to ask people how my layout is shaping up when i am creating ... i mean i do, now and again, but not very often ... and very few people ever suggest changes to something i am working on ... i guess i just like to scrap to the beat of my own drummer and most of my scrapping buddies seem to recognize that ... Except the divine ms g aka Hayley ...

So I am working on this layout ... for my darling daughter (looks so much more caring than dd) and using pink, black and white (which are my sweeties fave colour combination ever) ... and i think i am finished ... but i doesn't quite look like a me layout ... and Hayley says "how firmly is that lace edge of the paper attached?" ... well good enough i tell her. She then asks if I have any white tulle ... well at home i tell her (not my brightest day) ... "well i was just thinking" she says "that it would look really cool and more like a you layout if your kind of gathered white tulle under the lace edge" ... TADA ... i have one of those wow, the heavens open up with brilliant light and the gods are suddenly smiling down on me ... well me and Hayley moments ... Brilliant call Hayley ... so off to grab the tulle in the shop ... 3 yards latter i am busy stuffing it under my black lace paper ... and now the layout finally looks like my style ... only it took Hayley to make it look like my style ... so now i think i can start using all of that black and bright pink paper i have been squirreling away because my sweetie loves it so much and i am afraid of it so much.

It just seemed like the perfect Jo touch, besides...great minds think alike! Yes that was a snort of laugher you heard from afar. Loved scrapping with you. It was good chi that day.

Certainly looks like a "Jo layout" to me. Love the tulle...Hayley was right on with that one, the perfect addition to your page. I've never used tulle on any of my pages, it scares me, but after seeing this one, maybe I'll give it a try this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!
