Lasting Memories Challenge

Awhile back, I had bookmarked Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenges site on my computer. I dont remember exactly how I came across this site because I am always looking at scrapbooking sites & blogs. I liked the challenges that they had posted so I thought I would try them out sometime. I was going through my scrappin bookmarks on my computer just recently & saw their challenge. Plus, they are looking for a Guest Design Team member for the month of October. I really liked the challenge & I have been applying for Design Teams here & there.

Their challenge is to use lace, ribbon & pink on your layout. If anyone knows my scrapbooking style, they would figure this was for me. First of all, my favorite color is pink. I don't use a lot of ribbon & lace but I do love to create girly layouts. This also was very fitting for my cousin's wedding album that I have been slowly working on. I thought I would have this layout posted for their challenge & on my blog before now but the sunlight has not been cooperating with me for pictures.
 Here are some close ups:     This one is when I misted Glimmer Mist over a Prima Flower Mask.

 This is the Prima Canvas Resist butterfly. I inked it with Distress Stain, added some rhinestones & used 3D foam squares to make it look like its flying. Below the butterfly is a 3D sticker & I added the pearl in the center of the flower. To the left is the 6x6 paper by My Mind's Eye that I used the Lucky 8 Mini punch to make a decorative mat for the picture.
 For the ribbon flower, I folded pieces of ribbon to the desired length. These ribbon pieces already come with adhesive on the back so I just peeled the paper off the back of the ribbon & stuck the ends together. I cut a circle & glued each ribbon piece to the circle. I had to move the ribbon around a little to make sure the circle wasn't showing. I then added the Prima center piece. The white lace had openings so I took the Glitz trim & weaved it in with the white lace. I glued the lace down with FabriTac. I then added the rhinestones to make it look like it was part of the flower.
