Okay I'm totally in love with this layout. I worked on it about 4 hours this morning. I did alot of work on the embellishments.

Here is a close up of the homemade flower. I used Donna Salzar's flower technique. She rocks!

The base of the flower is a scallop circle cut from a brown paper bag, then there is a layer of pink tissue paper cut out in a scallop circle shape, both were sprayed with my homemade version of glimmer mist, then there is a doily that I sprayed with Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist and last but not least is a brown button. Yes Karmie it is from an old sweater. =) Layered behind that is a feather that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist and then just some christmas blingy wreath decorations that I got at Hobby Lobby.
Here is a close up of another embellie.

For this I used a tag my sweet friend Karmie Marmie sent me. I covered it with UTEE and Stardust embossing powder to give it that gorgeous sparkle. Then I just stuck a flower on it while the UTEE was still hot. UTEE is fastly becoming one of my favs. UTEE- Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel
Here is the other embellie.

The beautiful flower is also a gifty from Karmie. {Thank you so much} The heart was just plain chipboard. I painted it brown then used UTEE on it to make it shiny and I stuck some pearls on it while it was still hot.

The papers are all My Mind's Eye. I scraplifted the layout design from Aphra at My Scrappy Life.
