I can't decide which stand alone dies I love the most - they're all so fabulous! 
The Lacy Panel behind my photo is pretty cute.... 

But so are those leaves and flowers from the Jumbo Garden Picks Layering Die Set!
And look at how versatile the Happy Holidays Script Die Set is! Clearly, not just for seasonal sentiments!
Love it! 

Such a soft & delicate page with these beautiful Die Sets! 

My second project is another super pretty scrapbook page titled, 

"Beautiful Moments"

Beautiful indeed! 

Let's take a closer look....

Isn't this just divine?!!
The Watercolor Garden Layering Die Set is errrrrrything! 
Seriously, those florals are to die-cut for! 

They really do layer perfectly together! 
And how about those amazing Linear Pathway Alphas! 
So many creative possibilities with these lovelies! 

Just exquisite! 

And how about a lovely lil Christmas Card to finish with?

"Happy Holidays" 

Oooooh! I am loving this! So rich & warm, & elegant for Christmas!
Here's a closer look at it...
