The G45 papers were featured in the July 2009 Limited Edition Kit at My Creative Scrapbook .
Cosmo Cricket Blackboard flowers were used to help bring some dimension to the layout. I then added small Retro punched flowers with bling centers to the Blackboard. I love the Blackboard products. I think they were a great find & I have used over & over again. I cut G45 "buttons" from Buttons Ala Mode paper & adhered to paper disc & placed in corner.The Fashion Fades letters are Heidi Swapp "She" letters & were originally pink. I painted them with Ranger Pitch Black alcohol ink. The punch edged photo mats are made from the papers used in layout & the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch punch. ( Ohhh I love her punches! )

I used the great July 2009 Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook that featured the wonderful Traveler line from My Little Yellow Bicycle. Perfect for what I was trying to convey! I also wanted to drift away from flowers... I need to NOT do flowers all the time!!
I covered various sized chip circles using the "Cover old chip" method & adhered randomly. I added buttons & stickled the edges with 3 shades of Stickles-Lime Green, Dark Blue, & Cinnamon. Wahhlah.... done!

The flowers were made with the kit included papers, card stock using various dies & punches... & one layer of silk. I then distressed all layers & attached with a brad.

The inspiration for this layout is my adorable niece Anna. Anna loves to pretend. She is quiet when she pretends & usually whispers. I wanted to convey a dreamy sort of quiet feeling in the layout & the Basic Grey Wisteria papers were just the ticket! They were featured in the June 09 Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook.
The flower base is the Basic Grey Wisteria chipboard stickers. I added a couple layers of punched flowers, using various punches & dies to give them some dimension. I used the papers used in layout & lightly distressed them with Distress Ink-Faded Jeans, Milled Lavender, & Scattered Straw. Green jeweled bling was adhered for center.
I punched those pretty papers with a Martha Stewart border punch & distressed it with the Faded Jeans ink. The leafy vine is from the Wisteria Chip pack highlighted with Stickles eucalyptus.
