'Follow your Heart - You are Amazing' Layout - Flourish With a Bling {13 Arts/Lindy's Stamp Gang/Prima}

Hello!!  Finishing off September in October 'cos - hey - that's 
how I roll!  Haha - well, truth is I am bowling along at such a 
pace right now that I just can't keep up with myself LOL!  So this
 was meant to make it up last month but time ran away with me 
so you get to see it now!  Better late than never I say!

Here is the sneak that DID make it onto my Facebook wall at least :)

Those fabulous papers come from 13arts!  I was going to link you up to their DT call but I see it has closed already.  I would LOVE to have applied but would need a clone!! Sadly I am stretched to the limit right now...

Things got pretty distressed on this page 
{something to do with my state of mind maybe?!?}

I chucked (yup chucked...) some embossing powder into my 
wet modelling paste then heated it/dried it off...yum, yum, yum!
All my mists AND embossing powders come from Lindy's Stamp Gang.
All my stamps are from Prima, along with archival ink = no smudging.

I misted the flowers & dried them off, intentionally
 shrivelling them up a little for a more grungy look.

All the loose gems come from 13arts (part of a set) - the best way to attach them is to blob on some hot glue then simply shake them on, wait a minute for the glue to set, then shake off the excess.

You can see the post at Flourish With a Bling HERE.
It gives you product codes on all the FWAB stuff used
plus direct links to their online store.  If you leave me
a comment there I score some Brownie points too :)

Thanks for checking out my page here today! 
I hope you all have a great, productive & blessed October!!  
Mine is already set to be full of action both on the home 
front AND the scrappy one so see you all again soon :-D
