She's So Lovely

A good Tuesday to you!
Today is the second installment of the 
AUTHENTIQUE + PETALOO BLOG HOP
 
I love pairing up Authentique papers with Petaloo anything...they were made for each other, 
which makes any project using the two fun! Today I'm sharing a layout of my daughter with photos
that I took after her last dancing show.
 
  I started with a background from one of the Lovely papers, "Crush" and a little bit of misting
 in black velvet by Heidi Swapp. The next step was pretty cool...I actually embossed
 a small piece of the "Dearest" paper in a rose pattern and used it as the mat for my photos.

The shabby chic look of the Pink Dahlias mix perfectly with the cute whimsy of the Mini Florettes
 with their blinged centers.  I placed a small round foam dot on the backs of the Florettes
 so that they would really pop up from the embellishment they were added to.

 In keeping with the 'round' embellishment theme, I used the three round seals from the
 "cards repeats" stickers, along with a doily die and round punch.  It's fun to experiment
 with the different punch-outs and stickers to see what will look best and where...Authentique
gives you so many possibilities in all of their collections!
