May All Your Dreams Come True - "Secret Garden" layout

This is my first layout that I have done that is not "flat". It was done with the March kit "Secret Garden" from http://www.scrapthat.ca/.  I so enjoyed the whole process from fussy-cutting to making the "coffee filter" flower! This flower was made from a tutorial on Lisa Gregory's blog:  http://www.what-a-beautiful-mess.blogspot.com/.  The butterflies and swirly vines came from tutorials on http://www.swirlydoos.com/, a website that she is the design team co-ordinator for.  I have learned so much from her blog and the tips she gives on swirlydoos. 

The jewellery piece in the bottom right hand corner is an old earring that has been languishing in my junk drawer for years. I added it because Emily has always been entranced with my "ring-ears" as she calls them. It is a little memory that I have tucked in for her!  She is my first grand-daughter, 3 years old, and so very dear to me.  I cherish the moments I get  to spend with her, because I get to see the world through a child's eyes again, and it's a whole, fresh new world!
