MulltiCraft Forever in Time was the starting point for my “Happy Memories” 12X12 scrapbook layout. Who can resist a jar full of flowers? I was feeling a bit playful in my studio and these charming  MultiCraft Forever in Time bottles filled with flowers were the inspiration for my whimsical vision.

I always like to add in small details and doodles to my…
