Sketches with a Twist March

I have some exciting news to tell you soon so watch this space.............................
Now on to my design for Sketches with a Twist for March, I haven't got photos on this layout as its for my Niece's Baby Album so I hope that's okay.
This is what we had for the sketch and we had to use 3 identical embellishments somewhere on the layout.
I have used my Cheery Lynn Die Dainty Dutch Die  DL 141 from Scrappy-go-Lucky, for the Chevron which is the bottom part of the layout, I would have just said the zig zag shape but it does have a proper name. Its a very simple layout as I don't want to go over the top when its not for me, and I didn't want to take away from the intricate details of the Cheery Lynn Die.
I have cut the die out and then cut it in four to give me the triangle shapes then just placed them on the page to fit and there you have it my own Chevron pattern.
And I actually have 3 lots of three embellishments on my page with the blue Card Candi form Scrappy-go-Lucky.
The blue in the middle of the circle is from the middle of the Dainty Dutch Die.
This is just an extra page for the album so I can put the two together
I hope you enjoy looking at my Layout as much as I enjoyed making them.
Cheers Shelley
