My favourite things: Creative inspiration by guest designer Debbie Burns

Hi! My name is Debbie Burns and I am so excited to guest design this month for Zeus and Zoe.  Thanks Marivic for inviting me! I am currently on the design team for Berry71bleu, sister site of Zeus and Zoe. I live in Maryland with my 
two children ages 23 and 26 and one precious dog. I started scrapbooking 13 years ago after I received a completed scrapbook album "all about me" for my birthdayI took one beginners scrapbook class and the rest is history.  I don't really have a defined style, as all of my layouts are different, but I do love to layer and cluster, flowers and butterflies being my favorite. I would love for you to stop by my blog Love Life's Little Pleasures.

I love June's theme, My Favourite Things, hosted by Denise and Norma.  For those of you that know me, I have quite the love for flower gardening.  I love this time of the year.  My flower beds are full of perennials and I fill in the bare spots with annuals.  My favorite annuals are Geraniums, thus the focus of my layout.

Marivic sent me a few goodies to work with.  One being the Emporium Tag die from Couture Creations.  Here I have used it in a few spots.

I also worked with some Magical powder, Ghostly Gargoyle White by Lindy's Stamp Gang.  I mixed the power with some water and lightly brushed it on the little pink roses.

I did some masking on my background, using the Circular Lattice mask by Prima and added some ink, and misting.

Here is a closeup of my cluster:

I hope I have inspired you!  Thanks Marivic for having me!
