"Lady in Red" layout - SIWAS

Back again!

This time I am showing you my layout I have created for the 2nd song for the month over at Scrap it With a Song, "Lady in Red" by Chris De Burgh.  To see all the details and all the other fabulous creations, please click here.

I really love this song by Chris De Burgh. It was hard to choose which part to use, but eventually chose this picture and the chorus line "it's just you and me" stuck out.
This picture was taken on New Years Eve 2012 before our celebrations to ring in 2013.  Our friend Colin Worley took this photo (and many more of my family) on the evening.  He's on Facebook (PhotoCol Photograhy) and is based in the Redcliffe area (Queensland, Australia).
Materials Used:
Paper/Cardstock - kaisercraft; bazzill
embellishments - kaisercraft paper blossums and pearl flourish; green tara paper blossums; leaves and pearl stamin (unknown); "eyelash" ribbon; muslin; black lace; A2Z Scraplets; black embossing powder; mini letter stickers (unknown);

I really like the "After Five" collection by Kaisercraft with this photo.  I used one of the "journal block" pages and cut a couple of the blocks out to piece together my page.
I used black lace under one of my layers and punched a piece of paper with my scallop border punch.  I like layering my papers and embellishments to give my layout dimension.
With my title, I mixed the fonts/mediums used. I used some mini letter stickers that I have had hiding in the bottom of my drawer for AGES for the first part and the "You and Me" is an A2Z Scraplet that I inked with black Versaink and embossed with black embossing powder.
I hope you like my page.
Until next time, happy crafting!
