I had such a ball having a play with this gorgeous collection kit. The bright colours were perfect for documenting my story.

Here is the layout I created: The subject of my layout is a bit of a 'mushy' story. This photo was taken on Valentines day this year and much to my and my 6 year old daughters surprise my husband came home with two bunches of native flowers. We are such lucky girls to have an amazing husband and male role model and daddy for my daughter. I hope she learns through the actions of her Daddy that there are amazing men out there that will show and appreciate us for all that we do.

Including some detailed images:

The colours in this kit are so vibrant and soooo easy to create a page with. The floral paper had my heart.

I couldn't resist making a feature of that gorgeous floral paper. What a statement it makes!
My journaling is basically just a retell of the story behind the flowers we are holding. Of course this is typewritten and cut into strip form before adhering.



I hope that you were inspired by my layout today, be sure to check out the Altenew store to snap one of these kits up!
