Laura's romantic layouts and this months challenge!

Good morning!
My hubby and I have been married for over 17 years and he still gives me butterflies....
At a recent family wedding the photographer took this photo...I loved it and when I saw the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios papers in the Scraps Of Darkness 'Our Story' kit I knew that it was perfect for this photo.


I chose my papers, then using my ink applicator and the Prima Chocolate Color Philosophy Stackable Magnetic Ink Pad to gradually darken the outside edges then trimmed and distressed the edges, matted the photo, and added the fabulous ribbon from the main kit.


I created a cluster with the flowers from the floral add on and some from previous kits and a Prima resin heart I altered that I bought from the Scraps Of darkness Store


I love this heart....
I started by misting it with Tim Holtz red distress spray from a previous kit, then I used the Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Marker on the raised edges.  I used the Lindy's Stamp Gang Milk Chocolate Magical Shimmer Powder with a tiny bit of water, then added the Blue Fern Studios Charred Bricks Glitter from the elements add on.  I used the title piece from one of the trims from the Blue Fern Studios paper.


I misted and inked some doilies and added more flowers and one of those sweet hearts from the main kit


I bought this gorgeous Blue Fern Studios chipboard corner piece from the store and misted it, inked it and added the glitter.


I also stamped a bit with the
Ruby Rock-It Bella! Champagne Bubbles Clear Stamp from the main kit.

Which leads me to this months Scraps of Darkness/Elegance challenge:
*create any layout using chipboard you alter
*must be new and created for this challenge and uploaded before March 31 midnight est
*paper only please (no digital)
*please upload your layout for this challenge into this album
*if you create a layout using any of our kits you will receive an extra ballot
One lucky participant is going to receive a March Scraps Of Elegance main kit...here is the fine print if the winner is in the US, it will ship to them free. If the winner is international, they will need to pay any shipping cost over $10.00.


Now here is my second project...
I recently developed some gorgeous photos we had taken by my niece. These photos were perfect for the awesome Scraps Of Darkness 'Our Story'  kit.


These Prima papers are really stunning with the shimmer and colors....


I used the gorgeous 49 and Market Shimmer & Shine Amber Fleur Des Champs Glittered Flowers  & Vintage Shades Yellow Blossoms from the floral add on...They are amazing.


In the elements add on is the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons that match the copper foiling in the paper.
For the title piece I used one of the Prima 3x4' Love Clippings Journaling Notecards from the main kit.



I also used some of the journaling cards under the photo!

Thanks for stopping by!
Laura
