Show Us Your Stuff March Challenge

The challenge this month at Show Us Your Stuff is this gorgeous sketch by Chloe Nielsen

I rotated the sketch because I was using a landscape photo.

Here is my layout-

I have used my absolute favourite paper ever on this layout - Studio Calico Seven Paper 'Goldie- Paper 12'. And yes it did hurt a bit cutting it up - but I wanted to use my favourite paper on such a special layout. I just love the colours, and of course the stars! I've matted my photo and my layout on a piece of navy and white polka dot paper from the Heidi Swapp Wanderlust collection.

I have added a touch of red and black with my embellies and title. I think my colour palette for this page would have to be one of my favourites ever!!

I have added a bit of stamping with a phrase roller stamp. I have used a few flair buttons and bitty bag from D'Lish Scraps. I have also used a couple of Crate Paper  stickers and some Jen Hadfield ephemera.

My handmade item is some XO's and a heart from Charm's Creations. The team at Charm's Creations are having their own challenge on the Charm's Creations Ideas and Inspiration Facebook page, (to use XOs or hearts.)
