live, love , laugh


Here's my first go at using the new Pink Paislee Sweetness line. 
 I also challenged myself to incorporate some Hambly goodness in here.
I haven't used any Hambly for a looong time 
and after this layout, I can safely say that Hambly's designs are absolutely classic & timeless.
So in a way , there isn't any great hurry to use it all up .;) 

Looking at this layout , can you tell that my finishing point is the tree top here ? 
It just felt wrong to leave a bare tree here , 
so I simply cut off the hearts of the Paper Hearts die cut ,
 folded them in the middle and adhered them in different ways for a dimensional effect. 


For the top row  of hearts, I folded the middle &
 added Helmar's Quick Dry adhesive down the fold line and adhered them .
 I never expected to fall in love with adhesive ( after Kokuyo's Dotliner )
 but I so am now, with this one !!!!
 ooooo & this is only my first project with it ....
okay, I'm sure I'll have more tales to tell from here on .... 
I just received my Magistical Memories' DT box
 & some Helmar's adhesive products were in it. I couldn't be happier !!!!!
( more about what's in my DT box another time !;)  

The fun flag bunting is by Chelley Bean Designs . 
So precisely made , I just can't believe it's handmade !!!
I had originally thought I would cut it up into 3 parts & layer it up , 
but didn't want to spoil any bit of it 
and used it between trees for a change ! 
&I'm finally enjoying stamps that I've bought & hidden away. 
& why not ? gotta love flourishes in every design !
