Hello my fellow crafters!  Can you believe it's November already?!  Where has the year gone? 
I created this layout for Simply Renee Inc.  There are a few items on sale over at clipitup.com, so go check it out!

This layout was inspired by the Prima October BAP Sketch.  It is filled with Prima goodies... papers from different collections, flowers, masks etc.  The photo is of my daughter a few years back on her first day of Pre-K.  She looked like such a little diva in her denim skirt and matching hat.  She LOVES to dress up and is a major girly-girl.  But her personality is far from that of a diva's.  That is why I named the layout, "Exquisite Diva... With a Heart of Gold".  She is the sweetest little thing.  :o)
Thank you Mistra for helping me with the title. <3

 The beautiful bracket that surrounds my layout is a chipboard element created by The Dusty Attic (Bracket Frame Set DA0326).  I painted and inked the bracket and adhered a piece of Prima paper to the back of it.
 Sigh... don't you just love flowers?  LOL.  I am definitely a 'dimensional scrapper'.  I love to add layers and layers of gorgeous product on my layouts.
 This Baroque Frame (DA0542) is also a chipboard element.  I adhered decorative pearls to the flourishes for added interest.  The frame itself was inked with pigment ink and randomly embossed with opaque white embossing powder creating a lovely texture.
 To create this stitched flourish, I used a Prima stencil and masked it using pigment ink.  I then covered the masked area with clear embossing powder.  To add texture, I poked holes along the design and hand-stitched the flourishes with embroidery floss.
 This is the top of the Baroque Frame.  I think the pearls add such elegance to this beautiful chippie.
 If you haven't already noticed, I have a slight obsession with eyelets.  LOL.  So of course I had to add a decorative corner to my bracket using eyelets.
 The chipboard portion of the title was painted white and covered with Donna Salazar's Fairy Dust Glitter.  The word 'Diva' is made up of Thickers foam alphabet stickers.
 I created this tag out of patterned paper.  I used an embossing folder to add texture, and I stitched a border around the tag.  

Thank you for stopping by to take a peek at my layout.  Have a beautiful day and enjoy the rest of your week!
