The Gala layout

Remember that She's a Sassy Lady guest designer post that I did a while back? The one where I showed you how I add more pictures to my pages?

I used Fabulous Finds "hinges." You can click HERE if you missed that post.
 This layout has been sitting on my door for weeks, and 90% of it has been done! Well, I finally found a couple of minutes the other night and finished it! Drum roll please............
This is definitely a more clean and simple layout for me, but I like it! 
I used my Gypsy to plan the layout and then moved the pieces to different tabs in order to cut them by color.
I also used my gypsy to weld the letters (from Lyrical Letters) together for the title and the date.

The flowers and border are from the Gypsy wanderings. I cut multiple flowers so that I could layer them for more dimension. I also added a little bling to the middle of each flower.

On the second page of my layout you can see that I was able to put "5" pictures just on this one spot!

For my journaling I made a text box in Word, changed the background to black, and then changed the text color to white.

Paper Recipe:
*The Black and the White shimmery background paper-Recollections
*Silver shimmery-Recollections
*Pattern background paper for the "small picture holders"-Me & My Bid Ideas paper pack

Sorry it took so long to post this LO, but I hope you enjoyed it! Have a great day all my crafty friends! ;)
