Happy...With You - Molossi Chipboard DT

Can I say again how much I love the Molossi chipboard that arrives in my DT package each month. Suzanne and Josh do an amazing job choosing stunning chipboard just perfect for the style of layouts I love to do and I appreciate it so much!

This layout features their Decorative Arch -SMALL chipboard. It is so intricate and worked perfectly with this photo of my husband and I getting married under an arch oh so many years ago (could it be... 18 years this July, wow!!) I piled on the flowers over the arch and added some broken jewelry chain and beads and some gorgeous lace I had in my stash. The paper is from Maja Designs Spring Basics.

The beautiful butterflies are from my scrappy friend Lisa Novogrodski's Etsy shop.

The Couture Creations Jasmine Dream die is a perfect leafy flourish die, I love to cut up the stem into pieces to add leafy accents to a cluster.

I based this layout on a gorgeous sketch at Purple Pumpkin:

My layout took a life of its own, and I ended up using the flowers and lace and distress inks to echo the background of the sketch...I hope you like it!!

I also incorporated this weeks CSI challenge for this layout:

I used all the colors, for the evidence I used lace and flowers and distressed the edge of the 12x12 paper with distress ink...I used jewels aka beads, chain and cameo from a broken necklace, a wood banner and gold. For my testimony I documented our wedding and the fact that we are still laughing together after nearly 20 years knowing each other!

And exciting news I found out today that I made it 
to the second round of the May Arts Design Team!!
