Jack and Sally and some cool paper flowers!

I regularly check many of the websites I have linked to this blog and on the Cosmo Cricket website last week I noticed that Julie had posted a you tube video demo by Natasja, one of their DT members. In it she showed how she made some paper flowers for embellishments. I thought they were so great and I wanted to use them on the very next layout I made. It just so happened that I was working on another Basic Grey Challenge layout using the Black Tie line and I thought they might just be a fun element to add to the page. So, here is my attempt at Natasja's flowers. I also lifted the torn corrugated paper corner idea from designer Susan Stringfellow.

A little about this layout, we were visiting Disneyland in October of 2008 and while pressing a quarter of the Nightmare Before Christmas 15 year Anniversay, we noticed Jack and Sally hanging out in a back, hidden atrium in New Orlean's Square. We followed them out and got this picture with them. I believe it was a very rare occurrence as we never saw them out again.

Wow, I love everything about your layout. Love the corrugated paper and those flowers are wonderful. I've got to learn to do those.
