Today I have a project to share on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog
This week our challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge  is

  • You MUST add a link to your blog post in the InLinkz at CHEERY LYNN Designs Challenge ; no back posting, only new projects are allowed

The winner will be chosen based on merit by Cheery Lynn Designs. They will receive a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website. The challenge will end on Sunday night at 22:00 Eastern time.
I have been wanting to use this collage picture I made up with art projects I seen last year at a CHA convention...So I am sharing a layout of fun layers.
 I used Medium Rose, 
 Well you know I had to make some flowers out of a mixture of dies...all I used was scraps from my pattern papers-I love the leaves with PP and the flowers in another shade.I have been wanting to pull out my pearl swirls and use with flowers,isn't it perfect with these flowers?

Let me tell you that I am in LOVE with these flourish letters,these are going to be used many times.Next I want to try it on  a card, I know I will need to get more letters. I have enough letters to spell; FAMILY,YOU,and LOVE to use on my next projects.

 I wanted to share that the background papers are from My Mind's Eye and one of my favorite to use because it has glitter... I cut a few  French Pastry Doily out of a french patterned paper and used in the corners.
I had to add a border around the picture collage sort of as a frame. Then I used one heart shape and attached the Flourish U .

So there you have it ,a quick layout with odds and ends but I think it turned out well. Remember you have a couple days left to enter our challenge this week...hope to see your project Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog
