Scrapbook Challenge- use purple



I've been hoarding these Stampin' Up papers because they are so gorgeous and have been afraid to ruin them.  I think I did them justice. I am pleased with this layout. 
 I used the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge cutting the frames at 5 inches, the E is cut at 3 and the owl is cut at 4 inches.
I used the same technique as did on my Hello Kitty page a few posts down, the green strip is the back side of the purple flowers.  I cut a 1 1/2 inch strip from another piece and glued it on top of the seam. I like how it turned out, looks pretty fancy. 
 The flower is from my stash of flowers that the manager at Joann's lets me scrounge off the floor, I know it's pitiful but I can't afford the prices on the silk flowers these days. I used some purple twine to tie the frames.
 My beautiful owl; she has a hunter green layer and the "color' of her eyes is the hunter green.  I cut an extra eyelash piece and chest feathers from the dark purple and used a tiny hole punch to cut dark purple irises.  I used the heart from her chest piece and made it her beak.
 I tried and tried and tried to get this picture to lay the correct way so tilt your head to the right please so you can see it. lol

lovely layout Marji... the frames are beautiful! I too always have a difficult time taking pics of my 12 x 12 layouts especially the double layouts. I don't know how people do it. Anyway, thanks for sharing your lovely layout with us! That owl is super cute!
