For this layout I used the journaling boxes included in the paper collection as the basis of my layout. I cropped my picture to 4"x4" and lined 3 journaling boxes in a row. I punched two different pattern papers and tucked them in under the strip made when I placed the 3"x4" journaling boxes and my photo in a row to define the layout.

I made a bunch of roses and posies flowers in colors to match the photo and tucked in some greenery as well.

I made these smaller clusters throughout the page for a pop of color against the pretty neutral background papers. I actually used the journaling box to the right of the photo for journaling :)

Here's another view of the main cluster. I stamped and die cut the die frame included in this collection and fuzzy cut it to get individual branches and leaves and tucked them into the cluster.

For the title, I trimmed the sentiment from the journaling box and added a black frame around it. I finished it off by pop dotting it to give it some dimension.

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Distress a light colored background paper with the distressing tool. Make two peek a boo areas in opposite sides. Tuck in a darker piece of pattern paper. Ink all the edges with distress ink and adhere over another 12”x12” background paper. Punch out two strips of a white cardstock and a dark pattern paper. Add two and a half journaling boxes and a 4”x4” picture across the page. Tuck in the punched borders under the picture and journaling boxes as shown. For the flowers, stamp different size vintage flowers from the Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set and Mini Vintage Floret PreCut Set and die cut them with its coordinating die. Do the same using the smallest two posies. Layer different size flower dies to form a fuller bloom. Add pearls and rhinestones to the flowers’ centers. Stamp and die cut a few leaves from the Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set. Stamp and die cut the Leafy Frame and fuzzy cut the branches and leaves apart. Arrange the embellies to form a cluster on the bottom of the picture, as shown. Add some embellies to the top right corner of the picture as well. Cut out the sentiment from a pre-printed paper. Die cut the metal frame from the Decorative Metal Fixtures Die and add the sentiment over it. Pop dot it and add it over the journaling box on the left. Make a bow out of lace and tuck it in the cluster. Randomly add liquid pearl drops to the cluster. Add your journaling on the right side of the picture.
