Scrapbooking - pic of the week

Here is my 'pic of the week' in a scrapbook layout. This is an 8x8 size layout; such a fun size to work with, especially if you have just one photo!

I've used the colours from our clothes to decide on the colour combo: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac and Basic Black. I hardly ever use purple colours, so this was a nice change.
I'm giving you a sneak peak at some new stamps from the Spring Mini (1st Aug) - the leaf and butterfly image. They are just beautiful.
I've used the leaf image on the Lilac to stamp up a background. Onto the strip of Whisper White, I've used the Friendly Words wheel inked up in Amethyst. I got some new ribbon yesterday, which I picked up from a local store - here I've used the black stitched ribbon and I managed to tie it into a bow, then finished off with a half pearl.
For the butterfly, I've inked up in Amethyst, then rolled the edges into Lilac. Then with my SU marker pen in Sage Shadow, I've applied some ink to the leafy parts.
I've completed the page with some purple brads. It's quite a simple page, but I'm really pleased with it.

Early next week, I'll be back with another favourite pic!

This turned out so beautiful, Chantelle! I hear you about purple - I just made some purple cards (lovely lilac) for the first time since I don't know when, but it was nice to work with it again! I also love the black ribbon. Beautiful work!
