She Believed - The Scrapbook Store - C'est Magnifique Kit Challenge

I really enjoyed working with the DT kit, that The Scrapbook Store sent this month.  There was so much scope to create, and I still have papers left over.  I intend on making come cards, which I will show soon...

I am entering my layout into the C'est Magnifique Kit Challenge for October, you can find all the details about the challenge 'HERE'... the DT sketch examples are amazing!

The photograph is of my Mum, who always believed, always encouraged, always had dreams and hopes for us children (like most parents). 
Bazzill cardstock is so nice to work with, I used the Chiffon and White on this layout, which highlighted the colours from the Prima Marketing, Zephry Paper Collection. Teamed with a mirage of gorgeous florals, including Green Tara, Prima Silentium, and Manor House blooms.  The roses, were sprayed with Chalkboard Mist so they would coordinate better with the papers.  I touched the tips of all flowers in the arrangement with the Snow Cap acrylic paint dauber, just to soften the colours a little.  All flowers were adhered using Helmar 450 adhesive, a quick drying adhesive which allows you to move onto the next part of your project with the fast drying time. I LOVE the product!
In keeping with the theme of the sketch, I used some bling from Say It In Crystals, though I cut mine into small pieces, and created my own arrangement with them. 

Journaling was completed with the Zephyr Fabric Alphabet letters, they are so unique and can even be coloured with a touch of distress ink, or other paint medium.
 and before I sign off, do not forget the October challenge over at the 'Gallery', do come and join in the fun, and have the chance to win a $40 voucher and free postage!  Details, can be found on The Scrapbook Store Blog, 'HERE'.. and the Grab Our Blinkie Competition can be found 'HERE'...
Till next time..

Gorgeous layout Sandie !! I love how you placed everything , the words on the left, the layers underneathe your mom's photo and the flowers!!!!!! I could only see a small picture therefore missed out on a lot of detail I bet... how do I get a bigger photo?, The one I seen was over in C'est Magnificant Kit page... will you be putting one on this page? I would love to see it close up. Happy New Year my friend (maybe relative!) I hope you have a fantastic year!!!!!! Big Hugs
