More Challenges!

While I'm at it, I'll post a couple more layouts I  made for The Paper Variety in the past couple of days.

The first layout is for the challenge: "Use your favorite embellishment (mine is flowers)":

Supplies I used:
DCWV pink cardstock, Making Memories Love Notes "Lace Love Notes",punchout title, word, jornaling spot, and border from Colorbok's Flea market Punch out pad, wooden dowel rod, star shaped Grungeboard that I painted with Picket Fence Crackle Paint, flowers,stick-on pearl, and sheer pink ribbon.

The journaling reads: "Natalie, you made the prettiest Barbie Fairy Princess around!With a sparkling crown that I made just for you, and a wand that lit up, you were all set to grant wishes!"

The second layout is one I did just for me, with some of my favorite photos from my honeymoon:

Supplies I used:
Light green cardstock, Teresa Collins Noel "Sheet Music", Basic Grey Porcelain "Arabella", Making Memories border sticker and small journaling spot, American Crafts Thickers (letters, swirl, scalloped circle) and a Vinyl Music note from AC also, ruched green ribbon, journaling spot from the Colorbok punchout pad, a white paper doily, and a die cut piano from th Stamping Station that I have been saving forever (like 8+ years).

The journaling reads: "A Real Piano Man: Every time I hear the song, "Piano Man", I am reminded of this night on our honeymoon, and ending up here, at Silky O'Sullivans. We sat and listened to music, I drank my first hurricane,and we even had a brush with celebrity, seeing John Mcnamara, and a woman named Suzanne who was in charge of ESPN for the area. One of my favorite honeymoon memories!"
