When I was first looking at Crate Paper Bloom collection, I thought...swan paper? How would you use that? And swan embellishments? What do they represent?? Not long after, I remembered that we had been for a ride in the swan boat when we went to Masterton so I was super excited to use it!
I decided to use the scallops again; I had already used this paper for a double spread layout and decided this would be so cute if I used the greens and blues to make it look like waves, then used the swan paper as my background paper. Ain't it crazy! This was such a fun layout to make, and it's awesome to be able to use things that otherwise would stay in the stash. I did actually use swans on the double spread layout I created as well (totally not related to swans), so I think they are almost all used up. Hopefully there is another one left for my pocket pages!
