Girls .....

just want to have fun!

I have made this layout for a Challenge called 1,2,3,4,5 on Pages In Time Forum. I needed to use -

1--- piece of patterned paper
2---photos in your layout
3---(at least) lines of journaling
4---round eyelets or brads
5---letters in one of the words from your title

Most of the requirements are pretty obvious, but the brads are a little lost, there are four flower brads around the big flower.

These are photos from Aimee's 6th birthday party, and as I am very aware of children's photos being posted on line without permission, I have blanked out the children's faces, (except for Aimee's cousin Georgia). Aimee's best friend Milly is in the green top beside her, she was so worried incase Milly didn't turn up and her face was beaming when she saw Milly arrive! I had asked the girls to pose and this is what they came up with!!! The second photo is of Aimee just having a good time, hence the title!!!! Girls just want to have fun!

What I used

Cardstock - Some pink card I had lying around!
PP - Basic Grey - Gypsy - Archangel - Running with Scissors
Flowers - Large pink Bazzill - collection of rose buds Running with scissors!
Title - Silver Glitter card - Running with scissors - Font - cut from Craft Robo
Stamps - Prima Journal Frames - Running with Scissors
Ink - Around the edges of everything - Tim Holtz - Worn Lipstick
Paper Doily - Sainsburys

Definition of beautimus: Something that is both beautiful and fabulous. How cool is that?? I have created this layout from the following sketch that I designed for a sketch challenge that I am hosting on Tracey's Running with Scissors site.

And here is the layout that I created!

Not an exact copy of the sketch, but near enough!!

Close up of the beautiful Prima stamp and Prima bling! I have had this stamp set for over a year! Haven't used this stamp as I had no block big enough for it to fit on. Tracey got in some Rock-a-blocks and in the pack with the bigger sizes, the real big one fit!!! Yeah!!!!

What I used!
All bought from Running with Scissors
Bazzill - black and white
Flowers - Woodware
Prima stamp - Build a swirl
Bling - Prima - Say it with crystals
Crystals - Mark Richards
Title stamp - also from Prima Build a Swirl stamp set

The black flower stickers are from Brigg Garden center and are Anita's
