Hello my fellow crafters!  Today I have a shabby layout to share that was created with a combination of Donna Salazar's Antiquities and Spring in Bloom Collections.  I love how the different papers can be mixed and matched.
 For the background of my layout I used a sheet of Donna's Corrugated Board.  I painted and inked it and cut out a diamond-shaped hole in the center. 
 I really enjoy creating my own flowers.  These flowers were made using Donna's Carnation Creations Die.  Click HERE for a simple tutorial on how to make this flower.
 Along the inside of the cut-out center, I tucked away torn pieces of The Crafty Chronicle.  The Sweet Pea Frame (DA0573) is a chipboard element made by The Dusty Attic.  To decorate this frame, I first coated the chipboard with Donna's new (and completely amazing) Mix'd Media Inx.  Then I inked the chippie with Green Olive Smooch Spritz and dabbed white acrylic paint on top of it.
 The white embossed texture you see beside the photo was created with Clearsnap's Design Adhesives.  You simply peel and stick the Design Adhesive to your project and coat it with whatever you like- glitter, embossing powder, etc.
 I have a slight obsession with lacing LOL.  I used tulle to add a softer feel to my layout.  You can find a tutorial for my lacing technique HERE.

I used a Dymo Caption Maker for the journaling.  I love the embossed texture of the letters.  The journaling and title were inspired by Mandy Harrell!  Thanks Mandy!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful week!
