A RANDOM WINNER WILL WIN A $25.00 GIFT VOUCHER TO THE STORE. 

and here is a bit of inspiration from me -

"# HAPPY"



the challenge this month is to use your FAVOURITE CE chippie on your project. well, the thing is that i LOVE them all! but the thing i love most about them is the way they compliment each other  on any type of project no matter how many different sets you are going yo use!

for my layout i used WEBSTER'S PAGES modern romance paper line. to alter my background i used TIM HOLTZ' layered stencil "hearts" and modelling paste. then i used RANGER INK "lemon drops" paint dabber with CE paint splat trio stamp to add more colour to my background.

the amazing butterfly is from CE flourish dragonflies chipboard set. i altered it using a pink embossing powder and then i added a second layer of a glittery one.


for my title i used one of my personal favourites  - the social hash tags chipboard sets. i altered the word happy using pink embossing powder. then i added another chippie on top of it to embellish my title. i used CE flourish 4


here are some more close ups of my project:



i hope you enjoyed to day's post!
