Life is Good *Scrap Africa* - Creative Imagination IOD Devotion

Hi friends, the challenge this month at Scrap Africa is hosted by Elizna Parsons and the challenge is to use a film strip on your layout or project.  I have had a Creative Imaginations film strip in my stash for ages and I used half of it on this layout.  Please visit the blog at Scrap Africa to see the gorgeous and diverse projects the Design Team made.
Supply list:  Cardstock:  Bazzill; Patterned papers: Creative Imaginations IOD (Devotions); Flowers: Prima: Crystal Swirl: Prima; Title and backgroud cut by Silhouette.

I always found this paper a tad busy so I cut this trellis out of cardstock and layered it over the patterned paper.
I love the effect of the trellis over the roses.  I cut the title with my Silhouette and then gave it a glossy accent finish.
I also cut a smaller shaped die cut to go behind the photos and then layered the crystal swirl, some vines and leaves and flowers to the corner.

Other awesome news is that Scrap Africa is featured in Issue 27 of Scrap Affairs.  The magazine is available at CNA,
