Happy Monday Everyone!
Today I bring you my final layout using Pink Paislee paper included in the July "Home Sweet Home" kit from:
Scraps of Elegance
I'm also a featured guest designer at the challenge site:

The challenge for July is:
"Anything Goes"
I added two raspberry colored hearts.  I made them using a cake decorating silicone mold adding modeling clay to the heart shape.  I baked it in the oven at 215 degrees for 30 minutes.  When the hearts cooled off I added "Glossy Accents".  They turned out just like the resin goodies some companies sell for scrapbooking projects.
I added lace from "Tresors de Luxe" by cutting the little "Wisteria" type buds from the main piece of lace.  I was going for a cascading effect.  I added the  punch work chain, stenciling, misting vertically.

I was inspired by numerous designers so I decided to mix it up.  I added many flowers, textures, stenciling, misting, painting, and beading.
Stop on by August 1st for the "Scraps of Elegance" reveal!
Have a great week!
