Good Times


Ahhhhhh!  It's finally FRIDAY!

I have a layout to share with you that was submitted at Sketches 4 All for their April Buttons, Bling and Banners Challenge (Apr BBB).

Since I love these three requirements, I decided to play along.  Here's what I created:
This is Andrew and I in Miami quite a few years ago.  And because we happened to be there on my birthday my sister in law was determined to celebrate.  She got me a beautiful photo frame (which I'm holding but doesn't show in the photo) that says, "Good Times."  That's what we had while visiting... good times!

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, K&Co.
Paper Doily
Glitter Gems: Home Made
Glitter Chipboard Butterflies
Swirly Bling
Pearl Color Mist: Wilton
Lilac Color Mist: Home Made
String Pearls
Title Sticker Letters
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Sketch: Page Maps (Dec 2007)

For my banner I layered pp over cardstock and wrapped the banners around string pearls.  The banner was misted with a lilac mist.  I used a border punch along the top and added ribbon over that.

The flowers were misted the pearl mist.  Swirly bling shoots out from behind the large flower.  Buttons are to the right and below the flowers.  My sweet glitter gems are the centers of the smaller flowers.

I added another large flower to the left of the photo.  

The doily was misted with lilac mist and pearl color mist.  

A closer look at the flowers/gems... and the sweetest butterflies ever!  They're chipboard, glitter and bling... what more could I possibly want!?!  :)

Here's the other butterfly.

A better view of where I added the buttons.

I was trying to get a better photo of the shimmer in the mist... oh well.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
