Happy Tuesday CE friends! Nicolle here sharing a layout today. I recently bought myself a little belated Birthday gift. I love the heartfelt creations papers and other products. I bought myself a paper pad, 2 stamp set to match their dies.  This paper collection colors went well with the picture on my layout. It was my 40th Birthday and my sis wanted to make sure I had a good time. I don’t often drink but I did enjoy a bit too many shots that day. I love the taste of cinnamon so she went ahead bought some cinnamon flavored whiskey called Fireball. Yeah that hard liquor went down real smooth. Yum. Memories were made that night. 😉


I stamped the background paper with our bokeh rubber stamp. I applied Prima chalker edgers to the stamps in the colors old rose and white. I stamped the darker image first and then went over with the white pattern. I altered the moroccan panel pieces by simply using a Faber Castell big pitt artist pen in the color brown.



I simply applied Tim Holtz distress paint in mowed lawn  and edged some leaves with white chalk edger.



I heat embossed the ivy flourish in a dark green and then lightly applied mowed lawn distress paint.



I applied mowed lawn for a base coat on the social hashtag  and then applied green stickles. The rectagular frame I applied chalk edger ink in old rose. Then applied white ink to the edges. I then applied a crackle image in mowed lawn for a sort of a viney look. It did not come out the way I had liked.  I added a conversation heart to the bottom right corner of the layout. I was inspired by a sketch at sketchesforyou.ning.com.

Thanks for stopping by the blog.
