Layout for the Color Room # 64 "Beauty Blooms From Within"

This week we are not required to create for the challenge reveal at CCG due to the DT Call .
You can read about that in the yesterdays post. Just scroll down a little bit...

I am using the beautiful kit that Erica sent me from Your Scrapbook Stash and this month it was full of "The Girls Paperie" goodness. I just adore everything she sent me!!

The papers and gorgeous embellishments that  I received turned out to be quite perfect for the challenge at The Color Room this week.

This is my take on the palette # 64:

The layout is done on a base of stitched layers. I love the look of it.
And here is the current palette and sketch. I  did not use the sketch this time, but many times I find it is such a great way to get started!

Isn't this gorgeous.? The colours just scream Summer to me...

Here are some close ups of my layout:

I used the Kitsch Market trims to embellish my layout. I also had the Vintage Whimsy Glitter Charms.
All the contents are just so adorable and perfect for a girl's layout.

I used the narrowest of the Trims to fasten the little charm in the shape of a tiny little cage. The other shape is a clock face and you get six altogether.

The red glitter trim at first reminded me of Christmas, but I decided that I was not going to wait six months before using it, I chose to use it now and add some whimsy to my page.

I did a lot of layering and stitching of my different layers.
I love the look of the stitched upturned slightly distressed papers.

In this picture you can see what the red glitter trim brings to my layout. It puts a smile on my face at least!
The lacy border was made using a Martha Stewart border punch.

I took so many photos of my layout I don't really think you need to see them all, but for those who made it all the way to the end here's a small collage of the different corners of my page.
As I know that "The Girls Paperie" will not continue as a brand and part of Advantus I am now off to hoard some more of their products. :-D
Hope to see you soon again!!
