Your'e Amazing !

This month over at Challenge Heaven one of the challenges is 'Your'e Amazing" in the title, and to use chipboard on the layout.  
As DT for July here is my sample:
 I used the fantabulous Pink Paisley - Botanical Gardens Range and spruced it up with some Vintage Lace, flowers and a little imagination.
 One of the papers had this gorgeous fairy right in the centre of the paper, so I cut the middle of the paper out (around 8.5 x 8.5 " square), rotated the left over frame and then stuck it back down more over to the left, this left a gap in the top and left hand side, so I improvised with a strip from another sheet and filled the gaps. :)
No cardstock used here:) sometimes the patterned paper is just to gorg to not utilise!

 I arranged the flowers with some cheesecloth and vintage lace tied together with cheesecloth scraps. They were inked with my favourite Victorian Velvet distress Ink,  The chippis is a scrapware piece and this was spruced up with some Smooch ! :) (gotta love that stuff!)
 The fairy images are from the Pink Paisley papers range,  the transparent bird is Tattered Angels Glimmer Glass and the Journaling spot is also Tattered Angels.

I just love the Bruno Mars song your Amazing,  and this was so appropriate for my baby girl, I sing it to her and her brothers all day long, usually the same bit over and over again!  
"When I see you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while, because your amazing, just the way you are"   and I have a wonderful singing voice ! hehehehehe not !
I have promised the boys a page with them on it and the same journaling, but as I am the only one of the DT at Challenge Heaven with a girl I kinda feel obliged to do girl pages ! :0)

 I added a hand made netting circle with a vintage button in the centre to the top right corner, and placed some cheesecloth behind it to soften it a little (and also to hide a destraction in the photo!:))
The embossed corner is another  Tattered Angels goodie with a swipe of Vintage Pink DI :)   There are also one in each corner of the layout. I kinda like how they give it that victorian look.

At the bottom of the page there is a Victorian Lace Border punched edge and some vintage lace underneath to give it a bit of a lift.  In the above image I have also rolled back the paper a little and snuck some vintage lace behind to give a bit of extra look .
So thats me done!  TFL    XXXX
