Pretty Girls

On the Paper Paradise Forum, Tracey set a challenge using this month's Paper Paradise Kit!!
Check out Tracey's blog for more ideas on how to use the kit! She managed to create 4 pages from it!

I loved the way that Tracey had cut out flowers from the pp in the kit and couldn't wait to get started!!! I read the rules of the challenge and Tracey set it so we couldn't lift her page, oh noooo!!! I have never worked with such bold patterns before! We also couldn't add anything to the kit!!!!

I remembered a sketch challenge on CIS (Crafting In Style) CISter's Stylish Sketches Blog, so I decided to use that sketch!

This is what I came up with!

First of all I have used 12 photos in my layout and I promise this will be the last time that I use these photos, it has to be, or I will never get any other photos scrapped! LOL

I inked all the edges with black ink!
I used the salmon Bazzill for my background paper! I used one sheet of pp, I traced around a Bazzill 12x12 scalloped sheet of cardstock.
I used the creamy coloured Bazzill, I traced around a woodware chipboard scalloped boarder to get this shape. I then stamped some flourishes to create a background as it was too plain! All cardstock and papers have been inked with black ink.
The title was glued down and traced around with a black marker to make the title stand out!! And no I didn't get extra letters in my kit, the second T was made by cutting the bottom of the J off and the second R was made by cutting the bottom of a B off!!!
On the flourishes all I done was inked them!
As there wasn't enough brads in the kit to put into the middle of every flower, I used a circle hole punch and punched out the centers for the flowers out of the scrap pieces of paper and cardstock! I layered some of the flowers and stuck some of them straight on to the layout.
For the journaling strip, I gutted the back of the cardstock. I then printed what I wanted off on some ordinary copier paper, then cut the salmon cardstock to size, used masking tape and stuck it over the printed words, ran it through the printer again! I then cut the card stock more closely to the words and inked the edges. I used 3D foam pads to add some dimension to the page.

Hope my extras are allowed
