Melanie's Monday post!

Happy Monday!

Today I will share my last layout from the Fresh Escapes kit!


I used the really pretty teal Hambly screen print paper (the back side of it) and layered with another Hambly screen print-this time the silver doily. This really is a pretty simple layout to put together, most of the embellishment (flowers) were hand cut from the Pink Paislee papers. I flipped the petals and leaves out a bit for some texture on my page and topped each flower off with the Tim Holtz pewter liquid pearls, which is included in the kit! The butterflies are from K & Co, just peel and stick!

Here's more of the pewter liquid pearls being used, this time I tossed in some Martha Stewart glitter and micro beads on top of the wet liquid pearls and just let them dry.

and my title, I mixed up the coral color alpha's with a black alpha I had on hand. But I like the way 2 different fonts/colors look together.

You can purchase the kit on the BlueMoon site. You are gonna love this one, it's so pretty and the teal and coral are beautiful together!

Thank you for stopping by today, but before you go not only is this my last layout with the kit, but it will be my last layout for BlueMoon. I want to take this time to thank Lisa and Scott for taking a chance on me. I had a wonderful time designing and playing with your kits month after month. To the design team, your work always amazes me, it's so fun and fresh. I'll be sure to stop by the design team blog every week to see your wonderful creations! And last but not least I want to thank you! You came here, read post after posts and left so many wonderful comments for me here and on my blog. Thank you!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe summer, take time to enjoy it and enjoy everyone around you!
