Once Upon A time.....

Saturday saw our monthly crop at Cardinal Colours....and I had big plans for making 2 layouts and a couple of cards.....well, I only ended up in making one layout,it took forever with lots of faffing and playing around....but you know what? I LOVE it!

Its based on only 2 sheets of cardstock( unheard of for me LOL) The back one was a bright yellow and I sprayed it up with 2 colours of Shimmer Mists. The front sheet was a sheet of Bazzill Bling, which I wet under the tap and then scrunched up in places before allowing to dry.

The photo is of me and our youngest girly, Chloe, when she was 20 mins! how the time flies!!!

This page is soooo sparkly in real life, with lots and lots of Shimmer Mists and stickles and bling. I used my MS punch for this corner which I Stickled and added a gold filigree finding and some paper roses.

The title was cut on the cricuit in black bazzill and then Stickled( gotta love those lovely little bottles of sparkliness eh ;) )
The doily in the background and the chipboard swirls were all given a liberal spraying of Shimmer Mists( my new addiction I think :) )

I made this embellie by using an embossing folder on some mirri board, painting it with cream acrylic paint and then when dry i rubbed as much off as poss.....I LOVE it!

I popped another gold filigree finding under this torn section and finished the page with the addition of lotsof blossoms....some handmade and some bought ones and also printed out some butterflies and Stickled them before adding them to the mix.

If you haven't yet tried Shimmer mists I can highly recommend them....the only problem with them is....just which delightful colours do you choose?

Warmest wishes Anita..xxxx
