Monday with Melanie!

Week 2 already! I had a great time stopping in each day and seeing the amazing work from the Design Team, didn't you!!!! We don't get to see each others work until it is posted here, so it really is a treat each and every day. Each one has an unique style!

Today I would like to share a layout once again using the NEW Flirtatious Kit.

Graphic 45 papers are always full of really cool vintage pictures. After seeing this lady's picture on the paper, I got the feeling to "feel beautiful in your shoes." Which is were the I got the idea of my daughter, Khila to feel beautiful in her new shoes.

To give the Basic Grey alpa's a bit more texture I sanded them a bit and added some of the Basic Grey Opalines to them. (Both are included in the kit!)

Love the KI Memories Fancy Lace paper. It's pretty and easy to layer. Not only is it a great paper, but a great embellishment, just cut it apart and use it as a border!

Also included in the kit is some Webster's Pages Vintage Lace Ribbon. I cut myself a piece, sprayed it with some Tattered Angels glimmer mist (there is a really pretty blue color included in the kit this month!) and made myself a flower. I attached a pretty decorative brad and a 7 gypsies dangle to finish it off. Making your own embellishments is a wonder opportunity to show off your own unique creativity.

Remember to feel beautiful in your own shoes and be unique!
