Shabby Chic

Shabby Chic, is the new theme I set the Paper Flourish Scrapbookers' Club
These are two of the layouts I created as an example of the theme.
Because I am a mother to two teenage boys, if I want to scrap a pink and girly layout, I need to scrap photos of myself and of course I needed to scrap one of my boys!
Here is the definition I put up on the Scrapbookers' club blog (according to Tracey)
Shabby Chic by definition is showing signs of wear and tear but with class and style J
Shabby Chic layouts generally use soft pastel tones, with a hint of floral embellishments for a soft finish, however you can use this style for male themed layouts too. Shabby Chic often incorporates vintage elements to bring out the worn or aged look.  You will also see a lot of butterflies used in this theme too. We are all haberdashery experts now, so keep this theme going and add in some stitching to bring some style and class to your layout.
