Rochelle's sketch is AMAZING!! I knew I had to try it!!
I stayed pretty close to the sketch except i staggered the pp. And I did use mist splatter in gold but you can't see it!! LOL!!

This is Stacy's challenge!
I went with the far left column! Gold (even though you can't see the Gold), Hearts, and Embellishment Cluster!
The some of the hearts are trimmed with gold too, and the "smile" is rose gold!  ;)

Lasting Memories #516 Challenge

 Some awesome challenges over at

 LM #516 - Australia - September is Spring, it truly is the most beautiful time of the year in Australia. The wildlife, trees, and flowers are in abundance. I would like to see FLOWERS on your layouts this week. It can be embellishments, stamped images, or on pattern paper.

This is my layout! You can see some flowers tucked in there! I used some acetate and transparent ones and really loved how this layout came out!! I even used some flowers under my clear hearts (homemade flairs with pp)! This is my daughter for her Spring school photos back in 2016. TFL!!

Lasting Memories #515 Challenge/Challenge YOUrself September challenge

 Some wonderful challenges over at


Lasting Memories challenge was to create a balanced layout and use China's colors white and blue.

Challenge YOUrself was to always include a picture of yourself and being thankful this month.

This is my daughter and I heading to the beach!!
I'm so thankful she gets to call me Mom!!
And thankful the beach is pretty much our back yard!!

I'm really not sure what a "balanced" layout is but I think it's balanced!! LOL!!
That is a white background! I can never take a decent photo with any solid background color!!

Also used this layout for a color challenge over at CSI via FaceBook!!
