Beautiful Fairy Belle

Hi there, Mandie here to share a layout

I used the very beautiful Prima Fairy Belle collection as well as a touch of Twiddley goodness. This collection is so very easy to work with and as I am not much of a layout person that was good for me.

She Loves You

Detail 1 
Detail 2 - a close up of one of the many shattered china roses I created for this layout
(I will be adding a tutorial over the next week on how I made these stunning little vintage roses)
Here is a list of the materials used
