It's a Lift!

Hello lovely people!!

This is a scheduled post, so as you read this, I'll be either splashing around at the beach on the Sunshine Coast, or laid back at the day spa... probably snoring!  lol   We were so looking forward to this break away that I'm sure coming home is going to be a little tough!  :)

Anyway, back to business.  It is my turn to pick a layout from the Boxx Gallery ... and shamelessly lift it!  I couldn't go past this stunning page by the gorgeous and super talented, Heather Jacob.  I just love the white on white with a touch of cream and golden tones.  I've wanted to do something like this for ages and this gave me the perfect opportunity.  I also loved the layered strips of punched paper and the white chippy element on white cs... and of course the stitching (duh)  :)

I've also had this lovely Dusty Attic peacock feather for ages and just didn't quite know what to do with it.  I had seen it used so well by other amazingly talented ladies, that I just didn't know how to do it justice.  I love it white with the little metal detail in the head of the feather.  Even in this plain colour scheme, I think it still manages to stand out.

Thanks for popping by... try not to think of me sipping mai tai's by the pool!  hehee

See you soon,

Another fabulous FABULOUS layout! I think you've truly done the white feather justice to its reputation (because I do know exactly what you mean!)
I instantly needed to Pin this :-)
Hope you're enjoying your break.
