Paper Reverie

I found this beautiful paper at Scrapdoodles! It's from Making Memories and is their line called "Paper Reverie." I love how the brown and subtle shimmer complements this photo of our Hannah. The doilie and "Blessing" cuts are done with my Cricut and I made the accordion medallion with more of the Paper Reverie. The lace border strip is from Little Yellow Bicycle.
I also picked up some of the greys/blacks line from Paper Reverie. There was a huge stack of black shimmery sebra stripe - not normally my choice, but I could see cutting the strips and using them seperately - and I love how they turned out in this layout. I think the scheme looks great with these wintery photos.

Not wanting any of the paper to go to waste, and needing to decorate some (super inexpensive clearance find!) candles, I used more of the line to embellish these candles.
Moral of the story? Every once in a while, choose some papers that you normally wouldn't - you'll be challenged in your creativity and by keeping products in the same line or family, you'll more than likely be amazed at your results!
Happy Scrappin'!
