Number 1...

....of what will be four layouts using the same photo. One for each of the cousins. I have taken this from Sarah's retreat layouts as I loved the version that was taught there. I think it was Tracy's class. I have used some French papers and a photo taken in Liverpool just before my niece left to go and work in Japan.

Ok so Merly Challenge wants inky  this month so that's what I've done. I've used one of the Pickled Pear papers as my background and sponged ink sprayed onto a messy mat through a Prima mask. Then I used the matching stamp with the same ink pressing the stamp into it. This didn't work too well and made a bit of a mess so I used the sponge to ink the stamp. I inked  the matt -another Pickled Pear paper to make it the right colour. 
The girl stamp is another Prima stamp and I picked up brown distress stain with a paintbrush for the hair and the same green ink as before for the matching shoes. Her dress is also from the Pickled Pear collection. The flowers were white but I matched them with the afore-mentioned ink.
The photo is of my gorgeous niece-the only chance I get to scrap a girl and use a bit of bling.

I hope this is inky enough!!
