Well what a huge learning curve to re-do my blog and what a time waster... anyhow, it's finished (I think) so it's time to get back to sharing my projects. Last week I posted a sneak peek of my layout for the Greatest View blog using some of the new 'fresh style' flair badges and the gorgeous new 'Chilled Cucumber Soup' collection from Jillibean Soup so today I will post the layout in full.

I don't often use chipboard on my layouts but I'm starting to realise that it's quite a wonderful product that saves so much time, especially when the title work is already done for you. This piece is from Words or Whatever (WOW) and I love that I could use it raw.

Now I know why people have been stamping their dates more than once... because if they are anything like me, they don't get it right the first time!

Another product I've been hoarding are the wood veneer pieces from Studio Calico. This little arrow looked a little stark just sitting on the page all by itself so I added some some thread to give it a bit of interest.
