Natural Beauty

This is now my new favorite page! I seem to be doing that a lot lately! I used a lot of "stuff" on this one but all of the papers are by My Minds Eye and once again, I used three different lines and they all coordinated beautifully! I used Lost & Found, So Sophie and Stella Rose on this one. Again, I love how most of their lines will flow seamlessly with several of their other lines! I feel like I get more mileage out of my papers that way!! I definitely don't get rid of MME scraps!

I used metal accents from Making Memories, crochet doily and some of the flowers are Prima, the rest are Recollections.  Flower brad in center of largest flower is MME Lost & Found.  Bird and Butterfly are Recollections. "Beauty" quote is a sticker from DCWV. Bling by Jolees, dewdrops and glitter tape at the bottom by Recollections. Glitter Chipboard letters by Recollections. Calendar tag is Maya Road. Adore ticket is Tim Holtz. Paper doily under circle photo is Wilton sprayed with Patina Glimmer Mist.  Under that is a Fancy Pants glitter cut transparency but after I finished embellishing you can hardly see it!  ITs there though...right under where the bird is you can see a little bit of a blue flourish which is what I was going for...although I was hoping it would show more. Metal frame is Making Memories. Onion grass from Michael's. Sketch by Beggahuna. I THINK that's everything!

I am submitting this to the monthly challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous - use 7 storebought flowers...I think I covered that!  Also to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge at The Paper Variety - Make a layout, use a bird and use scallops (on the doily).  I actually had Tic Tac Toe twice as one option was Use Spring colors, scallops and 2+ flowers.  And finally to Scrap Whispers Challenge 93 - use only head shots. The funny thing is I used the transparency that you can barely see for a challenge as well but I didn't write it down and now I forget who is doing that challenge this week!  ACK!
