My Creative Scrapbook Guest Designer "SO PRETTY"

When I opened the My Creative Scrapbook November Kit & seen the Teresa Collins Friendship Collection.. I knew I wanted to use this photo! It is a picture of my daughter-in-laws bridesmaids & I think it worked wonderful with the friendship theme of the kit . All day long everyone was commenting that they looked "so pretty"... thus the title!!
I wanted to make the layout pop so I used lots of bling & my old standby..black card stock!
I used the Fiskars Sunburst border punch to punch the edges of the background paper. I inked the edges with Distress Worn Lipstick ink & adhered to black card stock. The black letters are Pink Paislee... but seemed a little lost, so I mounted them on pink card stock, then cut & "Stickled" with Fruit Punch Stickles. The "ring " is also Teresa Collins & was included in the kit.

The Friendship quote was cut from the printed paper & doubled matted. I added some gems to the corners for detail.

I did quite a bit of cut work in this. I use Cutterbee scissors.. I highly recommend them!! This was cut from the printed paper & was originally black & white. I inked it a bit with the Worn Lipstick ink & then added the Stickles to highlight!
This was actually a very fast layout & came together so easy! The kit is awesome & I was so honored to be considered... much less chosen!!
Thanks friends for taking a peek!!!
