Always Live a Beautiful Life Layout

Always Live a Beautiful Life Scrapbook Page Layout With handmade cloisonne flowers in pink and gold against kraft background with metal embellishments, gold clock, music note, key, sparkle glitter leaves, birdcage, Prima marketing flowers and leaves.

Hey paper peeps {okay that was kind of lame, but it was just Easter and Peeps are ubiquitous at this time of year}! If you've been around here before, you know I like to mix up challenges {using a standard size 2 pewter cauldron} and see what happens. So I chose a couple new challenges I haven't had the chance to join yet.

Creative Embellishments: From their inspiration image, I fell in love with the magenta pink color (didn't take much convincing for this pink-loving girl). Since the twist was to add a flower, I twisted the night away and used a couple ;) That's what spring is all about...waiting for those first sprouts to unfurl their petals!





1-2-3 Challenge: Use a color, a word, and a technique (Pink, Beautiful, Hearts)

1-2-3 Challenge - April 2017

I know, poor Zae--again. He is so often surrounded by pink and flowers. I figure I can get away with it with his baby pictures. {he seems to make up for this femininity by being every bit a boy who loves dirt and trucks}

These flowers were inspired by a necklace my dad gave me years ago. When I was a little girl, my favorite flowers were pansies. I just loved their happy faces. One year he gave me a necklace made from a real pansy with gold cloisonne work.

I've been all about gold lately. My last haul was gold thickers, gold embossing powder, gold glittery things... It was like opening a treasure chest, and probably more exciting, if you're a papercrafter!

Thanks for stopping by, "Peeps" :)

  14. I like this place. I was here the other night, I've been there for about four or five hours and found the prices reasonable on all fronts and the staff to be so friendly. I would be the perfect person to have on an infomercial for these LA venues if they ever had one.
