The Scrappiest layout sketch 51

Sketch 51 is up & away over at the Scrappiest ! 
& Here's what I did using the latest G45 Le Romantique pps . 

& I just wanted to have a go at creating my own handmade embellie again 
I chose to make a hot air ballon using the handcut roses for the balloon portion - 
they are also supposed to be heart shaped although I'm not sure that's obvious .:) 

I certainly had fun making the basket first & then
 adjusting the balloon height after I put the basket in place on the layout . 

I think I used more than half my pot of Pixie Dust Blingz on this layout ,
painting it on almost everything ! ;) 
On the Prima roses here ...

around the puffy flourish ...for some contrast from the brown misted area 

& even tried painting on the Pixie Dust on my photo
 ( knowing of course that my photo paper is waterproof ! )

If you do feel inspired to try the sketch and if you want to win an amazing kit from Scrap For A cure, complete a LO based on this sketch and add it to Mr. Linky to the post here
Good luck and we look forward to seeing your creations!

Oh I love this, Pearl. The Pixie Dust makes it look like it has been sugared! Love your hot air balloon. Looking at the sketch I would not have thought of a romantic layout, but yours looks fabulous!

Have a lovely day :)
