Hello it's so nice to see you again!  I want to let you know I am so very excited to share my layout with you because I truly love it! It's hard to not love it because it's of my lovely Isabelle. Oops I got a bit sidetracked! Let's talk about  Ella's Pink Scrapbook Recipe Challenge: Cardboard, Journaling, and Circles. Here is my creation:


I call this Abstract Shabby Chic. I pined for what seemed like hours over how to dress up those corrugated cardboard circles. Finally I and settled upon these flowers.I distressed them with white ink to create the feel of these great Basic Grey papers and all the distressing of the edges. Can you believe there was a time I actually pooh poohed Stickles?  I just didn't know any better, I swear! Well as you can see I really laid on my Diamond Stickles rather thick on that awesome green ribbon. Mental note to self:  Stickles should be the very last step in creating anything!  I know you all are nodding in understanding of the grief I caused myself by not following my own rule!  Please be sure to check out the rest of the super chic design team. See you soon!
