Ring Bling


It's Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop time again and I am sure Lisa and Valerie have already made you squeal with their wonderful creations. The challenge this month was to be inspired by jewellery.
About 10 years ago, Mum bought me and my sister a Clogau Gold Tree of Life ring each and it hasn't been off my finger since. 
Over the years so many people have commented on how beautiful it is and maybe one day I'll actually scrap the story of the ring but today I am using the design to inspire my layout.
"Inspired by the story of the great Tree of Life, this ring features a beautiful intertwining filigree design. Incorporating wild vines, leaves and berries the Tree of Life ring symbolises the natural beauty and evolution of all life."

Instead of leaves, I have intertwined the hearts around our photo...
...added a few gems, mini hearts...
...and the journalling along the twine reads
"I am always grateful when we are smiling together"

Want more inspiration? 
Bridget is next on the hop list before finally landing with Jemma.
Thank you for hopping by today - maybe next month you too could join in with our hop - watch out for the post on the 4th of the month...

A perfect interpretation of your pretty ring with the bling and twine twisting its way across the page. The fluttering hearts are a wonderful touch. A reall lovely page.
