Playing with Kaisercraft!

Today I'm sharing a layout of me and my beautiful girl I created for All About Scrapbooks.
I recently ordered Kaisercraft's Finders Keepers Range from the store.  It is absolutely beautiful!
Although I'm not a huge flowery person, I am a big WORD person, and I love that this range has lots of words and quotes - in a hand-drawn font. Perfection!
Also the colours are amazing.
This coral and cream striped paper is stunning.  I love the hand painted stripes, and knew as soon as I saw it I just had to use it for a background.
For those of you who know my work, you know I usually create a mixed media  background. 
Today I decided to NOT do this - I wanted to create layers, just with paper.
So I began.....layering it up.
I recently ordered some of the Cocoa Vanilla Doilies - these look great in the layers, as they add texture and a different shape. 
My other fave thing to use in my scrappy pages are die cut frames.  They create little windows - they don't cover up too much of my background, but add a contrast.
So a few layers using the doilies, frames, Project Life cards, and torn leftovers.
I also added in quite a few die cuts from Kaisercraft.
I ordered the Treasure Chest Kit. 
It contains Project Life cards, die cuts and also these cool printed acetate cards.  Love Love Love!! 
I then added some chipboard from 2Crafty.
I decided to keep the chipboard 'a la natural', as the raw colour worked really well with the tones in the layout.
Of course I couldn't help but finish it with a few flicks of paint!
I tried so hard to just use paper, but I guess it got me in the end.
This layout documents my girl and I.
Everyone is always saying how alike we are - in looks, mannerisms, voice etc.
And well, I can't see it.
All I know is that she is the most beautiful girl to walk the planet.
Anyway, when I saw this photo, I could see it! - the similarities I mean.
So I wanted to scrap the story.
I also created a Project Life spread, which was super easy with the Kasercraft Kit. 
Here's the left side:

So great to have another week in my album!!
