Serenaded by Nature

Serenaded by Nature created by Pam Boudreaux
Memory Mania Masterpieces Pages, 28 & 48

Wow, these photos take your breath away-AWESOME!!!
Pam used the left side of p. 28 & right side of 48 substituting embellishment for photo. Pam incorporated a trend from October CK, page. 29 placing a title over stickers on tag & pulled together with raffia. Pam painted the raffia green to look like a weed. Another trend we've seen used alot lately are "leaves" (October CK, p.102). She punched leaf die cuts, stamped a dotted pattern on them & chalked them.

Great job Pam, I loved the PHOTOS, dimensions of the title, the pocket for journaling, Sassafrass borders and the way the whimsical stamps added serenity to the layout. Great job!!
