To give the layout a fresh feel, I started by trimming a quarter of an inch off of the edges of a sheet of the #03 green paper and I matted this onto a piece of white cardstock. I machine stitched round the edges with white thread, which is something I often do.
I then backed an autumnal cut file from 'Confession of a Paper Addict' with scraps of paper from the collection. I choose the papers which had orange, brown, maroon and yellow tones in them which again picked up on the colours on my photos. Papers #09 and #07 were particularly good for this as they have lots of colours in them.
The acorns in the cut file were filled with gold and copper sequins.
My two 6"x4" photos were matted with more white cardstock and attached to the layout and yellow pieces of patterned paper were also placed under some of the the photo corners. I used some gold and white foam alpha stickers from my stash for my title.
Printed mini acetate doilies were tucked under the photos too.
To completed the layout I embellished with die cut flowers from the Floral Cardstock Embellishment pack, sequins and a few splatters of gold ink.
The Truly Grateful collection as well as lots more lovely goodies are available in the shop and can be found on the brand new website which is a treat to visit.
