Hey guys Kim here, today I have a layout to share. I know I keep saying how I love their chipboard, but I really do. If you haven’t tried it you MUST!! It really adds something extra to your projects.

The photo on the layout is a recent one of dh and I out celebrating my birthday with a nice dinner. We were on vacation in New Orleans and had a fabulous time.

I love this photo and the colors in it. I used papers from blue fern studios Serendipity line, as they go perfectly with the colors in my photo. I used the fascination, calling cards, and inspiration sheets for my background and layers.

I did a bit of masking and misting to the background as well.  For my chipboard pieces, I used the lace-border-1 behind my photo. I cut it into pieces (didn’t want to waste any) and just used it on the sides. I heat embossed it with a two-tone embossing powder. I used the fancy-oblong-frame-set (the small one) over my photo. I also heat embossed this with a two-tone embossing powder.

I added some of my favorite flowers, embellishments and die cut swirly and called it done.

 Here are some close ups:
