Onwards and upwards: go up, up, up x

For this challenge Jennifer suggested using a stepped or upwards moving layout so this is what I came up with.

For this layout even the title involves using the word ''Up'' in it. This photo was taken many years ago when I went with friends to the Hospital ball. I loved the dress I wore and my friend Louise's dress is a bluey'grey so I used those colours predominantly. I found a patterned paper with doily shaped bunting and cut those out very carefully using a knife. I then put lots of pop dots on the back and put them at the top of the layout to show the upward movement and make it look like a decorated ceiling at a party. I had already used some mists to make blue and red splashes on the cardstock and I added some star shaped sequins as confetti and some little blue gems.

I also found a glittery pink ribbon which I used across the lower portion of the page and as an element block at the top righthand corner.


  1. Gorgeous layout,Jo...beautiful colours...and love that doily bunting.

  2. Love the little flags and such a great topic.

  3. Your cutting is so very neatly done, and the looping banners really pull the eye up the page. rest interpretation!

  4. I love this page! Cool cutting and a wonderfully celebratory feel

  5. Ooh, I really love this one Jo! I will be scraplifting the idea of those big bunting pieces looking like a decorated ceiling, and of course I love the splatters, gems and stars! It's all so pretty and uplifting!

    Thanks for entering the challenge! x
