Another Layout To Share

This one is for the July 15th Challenge over at Scrap A While. I SOOOOO LOOOOVE Beggahuna's sketches!! Challenge was to use her sketch, use the color purple, use metal and distress. Hope I did her sketch justice ;) I used a metal flower embellie, distressed edges using my wonderful Zutter Distress-It-All, loads of purple flowers and paper and made the pearl flourishes myself. I punched holes in the shape of the flourishes using my flourish template I bought from Oriental Trader and then put pearls over top of my holes. The transparancy butterfly was purchased from Gabrielle Pollaco at her Etsy Shop. I added pearls and gems to it but it's beautiful on it's own. I made the purple crocheted flowers, myself ;)

Tomorrow is Brooklyn's pageant so wish us luck. She has been practicing (although she hates practicing but loves winning) but this will be the first time she has to make an announcement on stage. Very hard to get a 5 year old to talk slow when she's

Happy Friday!!!

This page is GORGEOUS Nikki!! Love the circle trim!! You're sweet to share my etsy link but I haven't opened my shop up for almost a year now because of some acute shoulder/arm pain I've been dealing with :)

So nice to see your work!
