I got to work with some stunning papers on this layout. My Mind's Eye always comes up with beautiful papers, but this time, they really outdid themselves. I got to see the whole collection during CHA and was so happy that HK Memory Chest (HKMC for short) brought them into the shop, that I got the whole lot of papers. I wasn't quick enough on the embellishments and the chipboard was all gone by the time I got there.  These papers are just so versatile. They come in two colour palletes, blue and pink, with modern prints, as well a shabby chic look so you can mix and match.

How pretty is this paper? I cut a hole through the top piece and layered the back with the green piece to give it some contrast. From there, I layered on the the frame and photo before adding the hexagon cut outs and bling. I wanted to add a few more romantic accents in the chair and chandeliers and finished it off with a border of liquid pearl dots.
 I backed the music paper onto grungeboard before die-cutting the butterfly. On top of that, I added Glossy Accents and Perfect Pearls. The edges are rimmed in Smooch ink.
After cutting out the hexagons, I distressed and inked the edges. I then ran a couple of them through an embossing folder to give it some texture.
For the title, I crackle distressed them with Crackle Accents and used a white marker to give it more depth.
I still have lots of the same paper line to work with for my next project and I can't wait to do a page for my hubby's birthday layout late next week.
