2 layouts from Giselle

We have a bit of catching up to do here at A Daily Inspiration! So today we have two layouts from England's very own Giselle Homer. Check out the fab felt in the first layout from Fancy Pants. And notice in her second layout the single upside down chipboard letter that correlates with the photo/theme of her page!
