Smile, Life is Beautiful!

Hello Paper friends!
Sharing my latest today. A layout I made for the More than Words & Mixed Media Challenges. 
I cannot believe the little girl on the photo will be 22 in just 10 more days. How time flies.

For my background work I used stamps, embossing powder, stencils, pastes and crackle pastes. It's quite the assortment of products. 

I cut the chipboard in pieces and stuck it to the paper. After that I splattered with the Color Blooms and Splash-inks. I put down the cheesecloth that I had already colored earlier. On top of that the red Jute string. I wanted that to randomly pop out from behind the picture and flower arrangement. 

The flowers are from several collections. If you've checked on my worked before you know that I love love love flowers. Dressing the arrangements up with some other little things and we're almost done. Of course we needed some butterflies too, some crystals, micro-beads and final splatters.

Thank you so much for checking my blog! I hope you liked my work. 
Have a wonderful day!
