DeLovely goodness :-)

My DT pack from Handmade by Suzanne this month was full to the brim of DeLightfully DeLious Cosmo Cricket DeLovely goodies!!  (LOL .. sorry, couldn't resist)  I was over the moon as I think this range would still have to be one of my all time favourites so far.  I adore the colours and the whole bright prettiness of it all as well as all the fun elements :-)

So,
Life is lovely:
 For this page, I got border punch happy and punched heaps of strips from one sheet of pp and using both the A and B side as well as some plain cardstock I had fun creating this background.  I have had this idea floating in my head for a little while now.  The punching took me forever, so I'm glad it looked OK in the end :-).  Those gorgeous flowers are from the lovely Taryn who I met the other weekend... thanks Taryn :-).  The doilies are from the other weekend too... oh how I love them!!!

How could I not have a page with a title with the word "Lovely" in it LOL!  These alphas are on the sheet of cardstock shapes... cute aren't they :-)   
 Journaling with the Cosmo Cricket tiny type alphas .... love them. 

Pinata time:

 The chipboard shapes in this range are so much fun to use and make embellishing a breeze.  I have used the border strips and some flowers.


 
 The Cosmo Cricket tiny type alphas include some word stickers ... fun!!!  The pearls are one of my fav products in the HBS store :-)
I have cut out some flowers from the pp and put them on top of the chippy ones for some added depth.  Also available from the store ... cardstock, glimmermist, Sassafrass Lass banner stickers, Thickers.

Don't forget the sketch challenge this month!!  A fab voucher up for grabs :-)

I've already told you that I love the first layout so much at the forum at Suzanne's , but looking at it again I'm loving it all over again! The background with the punched borders is DIVINE..i can only imagine how long it look you LOL..You matched the colours so well with the colours in the photo! And you are all so cute, matching with a bit of blue on your clothes.
The second layout is gorgeous, love the cluster of chipboards on the one side. You have made those flowers stand out.
Well done!!
