Two beautiful layouts from Nicole!

Hello everyone!

Nicole here and I am back today with more creations
using the Scraps of Elegance 'Watercolor Wishes' kit!

I chose to scrapbook a photo I took years ago of the Chateau Frontenac based in the Canadian province of Quebec.  It is a very famous tourist attraction and is elegant and gorgeous, even if amid the busy city streets.  I chose the title 
'Just Like a Fairytale' because that is what I remember thinking when I saw it!

This classic woodgrain paper from the 49 and Market 'Heirloom Botanicals' collection found in the Scraps of Elegance kit seemed perfect as the base of my layout.  

I added some brick design stenciling and misted 
the background with yellow, teal and rusty brown.  

Below you can see lots of the gorgeous flowers from the main kit 
and floral add-on.  I misted a few in teal and added a tiny Florence Flask from the Elements add-on that I filled with microbeads and decorated this flower arrangement with some Prima Metal Patina Trinket Birds, also included in the Elements add-on.

I think you will be able to agree that this place looks magical.

Floral Add-On

I am so in love with the papers in the 'Watercolor Wishes' kit from Scraps of Elegance!  It was my first time creating with 49 and Market products and I have to say that I was very pleased.

Looking through my stash for pictures that matched the soft pretty colors in the papers, I found this picture of my darling furbaby and it was so perfect, I couldn't pass it up.  The photo was taken 5 years ago when Sugar was 2 years old and we had just adopted her.  She loved laying down on our keyboard in Yves' office.

I wanted to use many pattern papers to show how beautifully coordinated they are so I layered a combination of torn and punched borders over the dotted base.

I fussy cut some flowers and used a couple of the pretty doilies from the kit.

I picked apart a couple of the larger flowers to make more - that's one of the many ways to make the most of any kit!

Such a sweetie!
