Playing with my win from C'est Magnifique.....

A little while ago I won the lucky draw that C'est Magnifique Kits had on Facebook.
I won one of the newest collections from "The ScrapCake" called "One Moment in Time"
It is a little different from many of the papers I usually work with, but the fact that they are very soft makes them easy to use.

This is the first layout I made.  
In the photos are Beratrice and my goddaughter Nicole (8 months ).

I did a lot of fussy cutting and layering here. 

Unfortunately it just started to rain outside so I did not get a very good shot of the layout.
I added a lot of embellies here in shades of blue as Nicole is dressed in blue .
 The largest flower is a Prima bloom with a Petaloo bloom layered on top and a mother of pearl button sewn on top of that. I found the metal key at the local scrap fair a few weeks ago and the chipboard swirls are made by Imaginarium Designs. They are so generously sponsoring us in the OUAS DT!

I had fun just picking this and that from my stash to use here.

 To add a little more dimension to the paper strips, I partially cut along the printed scallops and lifted them. That way it looks as if the scallops are on separate sheets.

The tags with the words "Hope" and "Love" are also part of the collection pack from "The ScrapCake"
I inked around the edges, and outlined with a black pen before pop-dotting them to my page. 

 The girls look so sweet in the photo. I think you can see there's a connection already!
I also think Beatrice appreciates having a new little girl in the family!

I did some misting with my new Crafter's Companion chicken wire mask, but it doesn't really 
show a whole lot!!  It's just very subtle...

Thanks so much to Leslie at C'est Magnifique for picking me as her winner and for sending me this lovely gift!!

Thanks also to all of you who come over to have a look here. 
Please leave me a small message so I can come and visit you too!
