October's Word Picture challenge

Brought to you by the lovely and talented Kelllie Harrison!!! This is a beautiful page that I'm sure you'll all love.

Materials List
1 landscape photo 10x15cm
1 cardstock or patterned paper for base - 30x30cm (Paper A)
Patterned paper/cardstock pieces:
Paper B - 15.5 x 15.5cm
Paper C - 10 x 25cm
Paper D - 23 x 12.5cm
Paper E - circle 16cm
5 hearts (approx 3cm)
Assorted flowers to embellish

Before you begin- draw a thin line around each piece of paper/card (including the base) in either a black pen or a white pen (darker coloured papers) approximately 2 to 3 mm from the edges.

Paper placement
Place paper B approximately 5.5 cm from the top of paper A and 8.5 cm from the right of A.

Place paper C so that it is centred vertically and approximately 2cm from the right of A.

Position D so that it is almost centred horizontally – it should be closer to the left side of A. It should be approximately 4.5cm from the bottom.

Place your circle E so that it is almost on the edge of the right side of A and about 1cm from the bottom of D.

Attach your photo so that it is centred on piece D.

Add the 5 hearts to the bottom left hand corner of D.

Your title goes on the top right corner of your photo.

Journaling should be added to the right side of the photo of piece E

Embellish with your flowers.

Inspiration for this month....

The inspirational team have done it again!!! Here are their fantastic takes on this month's challenge. Thanks again to the talented Deb Hosking for a wonderful challenge!

On her layout, Deb has created an amazing border using wavy cardstock and doodling dots! What a fantastic idea!

Sue-Maree has lots of interesting borders on her layout. There's some lace, border punch, decorative edge on patterned paper, rub-ons....have I missed any???!

Kellie has patiently used her scissors and cut out a decorative border from patterned paper. Little bit of work but I'm sure you'll agree it was well worth the effort!!

Thank you ladies for such wonderful inspiration!
I hope we have given you some great ideas for your layouts. Looking forward to what you come up with.
You have until midnight on 30 September to get your entries in. Don't forget to tell your friends!!!
