My first scrapbook page!!!

I have finally got my challenge layout done for the may best of the mb challenge!!!!! Please bear in mind his is my first real layout so it is is probably not as fancy as some you might of seen but I am very proud of it as it is my first!!!!
The challenge was to use any flowers from any cart so I got out my storybook cart and cut the hibiscus for the corners, with a few holey squirls to pop bling on!!
I inked the edges of my flowers and popped some shimmery chalk on them and then some light pink bling on the little droppy bits.
For the squirls I inked them with a greeny colour and then popped some yellow bling in the holes!!!
The sentiment took me a while to think of, I wanted something specialto go with my special little men, then I came up with this and printed it out on some creamy coloured embossed paper.I inked the edges of the sentiment pieces and the edges of the 12x12paper with a terracotta coloured ink and then popped my cute little guys on.
I inked their pictures with a pinky colour to match the hibiscus and popped a few dots on using my brown sharpie pen.Both the boys and the flowers are on foam thin foam pads to pop them out a little.It looks much nicer in 'real life' than the picture!!!!
So I have got another thing marked off my list of things to do!! I have just got a book and a squillion cards left to make now!!!!
See you soon, thankyou for popping in!!!!
