My "White With 1" D.T. Layout
Love, Cherish, Adore

Hello bloggers. Thanks for stopping by. Today I have got my D.T. layout for "White With 1". Sorry I'm a little late in posting it on my blog. I've been so busy, sometimes life just get in the way!! 
This months criteria is
WHITE  +  POLKA DOTS (any colour)  + TAPE.
Now I have to admit,  until now I have not been a big user of any sort of tape, maybe the odd bit on a boy layout, but I tried to think outside the square!!! So this is what I came up with for using the tape.

Firstly I covered a couple of 2 Crafty chipboard  hearts with some "Tim Holtz" tape. Now I can't take credit for this idea as Tim himself had done this in his class that I attended last month & thought it was a great idea.
Secondly I simply added another strip of the same tape to a strip of cardstock & just distressed the edges & simply added it in amongst my layers. To finish the whole tape thing off I then just lightly inked all these pieces to tie in with my colour scheme. Too easy.

You can see in this pic I have also used some more 2 Crafty  Mini words for my title 
"Love Cherish & Adore" as well as this little lock & key, also from  
2 Crafty. I have given the little 
lock & key a bit of a faux metal finish. I have also used lots of gorgeous Green Tara flowers, of course,  
as well as my bow is also one of theirs. I am very into bows on layouts at the moment & lucky for me, they have a huge selection to choose from. The lace on my layout is also from Green Tara, yummy!!!

Well thats about all for today.  I hope that perhaps I have given you a little inspiration to join in this months challenge & perhaps play along with us over at WW1.
Until next time.
Cheers Di  xo
