Sleeping Beauty

The second in the series published in Australian Scrapbook Ideas, Sleeping Beauty. When the kids were young I always used to sneak in a night and take photos of them sweet and peaceful, as if to remember them this way instead of the rascals they were during the day. Not really, it was just that I had three children in three years and it was a bit intense sometimes to say the least, you just have to give into it, as there are more of them than you  lol
Out thinking three pretty smart kids can be a challenge I can say! even now as they all go into teenage years.

This layout uses Graphic 45 primrose paper, and you find sleeping beauty just where you would think, behind gates and wrought iron, along with vines and briar roses. I have stitched around the edge and while stitching captured bits of fluffy fibre, to add the layered look. I actually reminds me of a big brass bed, lots of soft layers and the intricate iron work lol. All materials and instructions can be found in issue 17
