This is a loaded layout.

Lets see if I can remember everything:

Firstly this is my kiwi jack layout. A lift off the lovely Roo.

I had to use the crown thing, I cut round my photo and even scrounged up some note paper from the kids stuff – couldn’t do much about the words at the top of the note paper – except choose the pink or the blue words … just as well they both matched the layout!

Secondly I also did this layout because Tam over at Scrap of Faith issued a Sunday challenge to do a layout using three of her favourite things – the colour teal, a bird and hand stitching. The deadline was Monday evening – so it’s thanks to that challenge that I got this completed so quickly. And hence the reason why the bird replaces the flower in the whole ‘jack’ scheme of things.

And thirdly this layout – being a layout of myself – is a rather late attempt at the whole ‘scrap a layout of yourself with the word beautiful in the title’ thing. Ann kindly cut the beautiful word for me using her cricut. I’ve had it sitting on my desk for ages – waiting for ‘this’ layout.

And the topic – the princess thing – it’s a God thing. It’s kind of a popular Christian topic at the moment. You can buy t-shirts that say ‘I am a princess – my father’s the King’ Not sure if you can read the journaling – but it say’s that I don’t always feel like a princess – in fact right now I feel (and look) rather like a frumpy mummy but it’s about knowing that I am because God says so.

Oh and a couple of other things – note the flowers on the pink background – lifted from one of Neens dt layouts, using the heidi swapp mask and the white ink. And I also borrowed an idea from Jo – inking the embossed Elsie paper so that the patterns stand out more.

When I took a photo of this layout on Monday to post in the scrap of faith gallery it looked slightly different. I decided after I’d taken the photo that I wasn’t quite finished and it needed a bit more! So this is a slightly different version. There is one other little detail that I’d like to add – but I’ll have to buy one first – and that is to add a tiny little crown to the ‘e’ in princess. Maybe a metal one like Meg had in one of the previous SE kits – or maybe a bling one … I don’t know …

So there you have it – one very loaded layout!

  3. And what a fantastic lo it is too, love allthe elements on it and to it.

  4. This is so pretty! I love how many details you have in there. And for one layout to meet so many requirements: go you!!

  5. THIS ROCKS MY SOCKS OFF!!! Especially the title and journalling and the whole sentiment of it all. Of course you know I am a believer and a fellow princess & child of the King! Woohoo! I’ve got a shirt my sister got me from Hillsong that talks about being a princess and warrior for the King – love it!

  6. WOW!!!
    Beverley, this layout is just amazing!

    All of the diferent details are so cool!

  7. Just loving your layout too Beveley. Everything about this layout is eyecatching. As Sheri Sherperd says on the cover of her book ” His Princess” It’s hard to look at our lives and think of ourselves as royalty. But the truth is, God is our King and we are chosen by HIM. Love the expression of this in your layout Bev.

  8. This is fabulous Bev, and I love how you have combined 3 challenges in one – very efficient!
