My Loves

I've done Elsie Flannigan's #5 Challenge on UKS. The challenge was:

Embellish a floral accent "No matter what your page topic, I bet you can find a place for a flower accent in your design. But take it up a notch. Embellish the center of your flower with a mini clock, a tiny thread-tied button or patterned paper. And don't be afraid to turn a large flower shape into a photo frame" Elsie Flannigan.

Here's my take on the challenge.

I have cut a purple flower on my Xyron and inked the edges using a dark grey brush marker. I added a purple flower ribbon brad which I knotted some purple organza ribbon through. I 3D'd some silver peel-off butterflies and stuck these on to it too.

To finish the LO, I used:

Purple Bazzill
DCWV Textured Paper - Gigantic Paisley from Charmed Cards and Crafts
Yellow Roses
Purple Organza Ribbon
Purple Paper from The Paper Cellar
Purple Brush Marker
Diamond Stickles

It's unusual for me to do something so personal and only the second LO I've done of me on my own. Here's the other one I did. I stamped the background and simply added torn paper, green card, a brad and a gem. The 'special day' was kindly given to me at a crop.

Well done! It's nice to see a personal LO -so often they are of children and pets. This makes a change and is lovely reading.
Thanks for your comments on my shaker card! I love making them cos I love glittery bits, but when I put them on a card I make a ham fisted job of it, but like this I can go mad with the bling and it works! Tip: I save the plastic bags that stickers etc. come in, slip in a backing paper (stamped or not depending) then fill it with shiny bits too my heart's content! So its's super quick, clean and easy.
Bon dimanche!

Sarah what beautiful Layouts, I love them both. I could just about read the journaling on the top one and really like how you said "I love being me" What a great sentiment, and something we should all learn to do.
