All Grown up & Loving Life

This month the Design Team were given the remit of creating projects using hand-made embellishments.  I loved the fab new Glitz Design 'Pretty In Pink' as soon as I saw it and couldn't wait to get started on some layouts using just paper and a few things from my stash to create my own embellishments.

I decided on Glitz Design 'Pretty In Pink' Roses and Polka (reverse side) for this layout.  I hand-made the toothpick flag and bunting to co-ordinate with the layout.  The 'toothpick' is actually a cocktail stick to which I added a flag shaped piece of co-ordinating 'Roses' patterned paper. 

The bunting along the bottom of the layout is made from triangles of left over pieces of patterned papers and some string.  They are both easy to make and cost hardly anything as I had the other items in my stash.  The base card is Bazzill French Vanilla (a fave colour and a stash basic).

Leave a comment on this post today and (if you qualify) I will enter your name into the blog candy draw.  Up for grabs this month is the equally gorgeous MME 'Love Me' paper collection kit.  Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

    It pays to keep all the bits and pieces as they always come in handy , and what better way to use them all up.
