Adore You

Howdy fellow bloggers! 
Have you had a great weekend - we have had such beautiful weather
here in Dallas, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it!

Today I want to share a layout I made with some of the new 
Authentique papers I got from The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie.
This is my second project with these papers and I am just loving them!
I am so loving that floral pattern- I need more of it! 
This fabulous piece of chipboard is from Dusty Attic. I painted it with Viva Decor 3-D Stamp paint, highlighted with Viva Gloss Gel pen, and added some sparkle with metallic embossing powder.
For my chipboard letters I used white acrylic paint and highlighted the edge with my Rose Metal Gelato® - I think that one is my favorite color! For the heart I used Gelatos® in Rose Metal and Gold.
 The punch is Martha Stewart, flowers are Maya Road, stick pins are Maya Road and I have gussied them up a bit with crystals and beads, the ribbon is Stampin' Up.
Here is a closer look at the chipboard frame. I have been hoarding this piece for a while, but I finally broke down and used it. I love this piece and I may have to go buy another one!  The journal spot is October Afternoon.

I am linking up at the following challenges:
Divas By Design - Girlie
4 Crafty Chicks - pearls (I used pearl pins)
Pile It On  - Hearts
Get Creative - Sketch
