'I am Blessed' Layout {Purple Pumpkin/Berry71Bleu}

I actually did my January assignment for Berry71Bleu before I left
for my holiday last year, and as well as being up on their blog HERE
you can see it at Purple Pumpkin too HERE.  It hasn't had it's own 
post on my blog yet so here it is!  I loved Marivic's challenge, which
you can read about HERE{the January challenge, which is still open!}

I've used crocheted doilies from Purple Pumpkin, as well as a Cameo, 
resin embellishment & rose & a couple of fabric covered buttons.

I love how easy it is to incorporate Purple Pumpkin embellishments
into almost every layout that I create these days, the variety is huge!

Can you see that I tucked a couple of buttons under my tag here?
This is a good way of lifting an embellishment up off of the page
& adding a bit of dimension, as the tag is now slightly raised.

Doilies are another really 'easy' embellishment to add as they
are flat yet textural so are great for all types of scrappers!
I hope you enjoyed looking at my page & it has inspired
you to dig out your Purple Pumpkin stash & get creating!!

If you're looking for a reflective challenge why not play
along with Berry71Bleu this month too?  This 'All About Me'
challenge is great to get you scrapping about yourself for a change!
Of course there are lots of wonderful prizes on offer there too!!
