Attic Charm layout and Video Tutorial

Hello my scrapper friends!  I hope all of you are good. I had a hard week with lot of inflammation and body pain but my dear friend Edna came to stay with me, she's always there in good and bad times and it was so good to me because I'm feeling better!  We have a great time together ! :)
Well, let's talk about scrapbooking , lol... I received the new Attic Charm collection by Blue Fern Studio, Oh wow,it is a gorgeous collection and the flowers are so pretty . I created a page with it and made a video tutorial that I hope you have time to watch the video.

I worked with the Mercantile and Calling Cards papers from the Attic collection in this page. I love the feminine look of the Mercantile paper.  The pretty bride is the daughter in law of my friend Edna. I'm not going to explain how I worked the background or the chippies because everything is recorded in the video.

These are the new Attic Flowers from the same collection.



 The title is one of the new chipboard by Blue Fern called Remember Moments.

I draped the Miss Olivia 01 paper and cut out one of the butterflies from the Miss Olivia- paper strip.
