At long last (maybe a few weeks later haha), I now have it and it is just os lovely as I imagined. It is a really versatile range with lots of florals but also lots of plainer pieces in the patterned paper. I love the floral ephemera packs and the gold...the gold...the gold....I have never been a gold fan until this year and now I can't get enough of it!
I printed out this photo ages ago of my mum and her sister in a studio shot because it was a definite 'to do' photo and choose the spots 'Bookmark' as the background page because of the smocking on their dresses. My grandmother made these dresses for the two little cuties, and I wish she was still able to smock and sew but at 91 it's a little beyond her now. Lucky for me my mother still smocks and maybe I should get her to teach me (though if it is anything like my crochet learning skills we are in trouble).
Then the fun bits, selecting the lovely flowers from the flower ephemera pack! There are card, vellum, gold foil and even GOLD FOIL EMBOSSED(!!) flowers in the pack. I also chose a floral piece from the chipboard set.
