'Lido' Layout - Inkido December Stars/Snowflakes Challenge - Closing today!!





Hi everyone!  
The last day of the month AND year is here today!!
I hope you all have some exciting plans for tonight!  
New Year's Eve!
I love the turning of the year - 
not going out to parties but reflecting on the year past 
& deciding on my New Year's Resolutions!
Yup I am BIG into that!! 
 I love reassessing my goals & planning ahead.

I am up on the Inkido blog today!  See my post HERE.


I used Inkido paper, stamp, flowers & bling.
For product names & links please see my post 
up on the  INKIDO blog {link above}.


I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Spray in 
Autumn Maple Crimson {on the flowers} & 
Embossing Powder in Midnight Pewter
 {on the snowflakes}.


To add to the snowy feel I tucked in some cheesecloth 
that I pulled to be very loose before adhering.


I added in some crystal buttons & some black flowers from Prima.


The chipboard snowflakes come from 2Crafty Chipboard.


I also tucked in some bling buttons from PaperVine.


I used a vintage doily sent to my by dear Mitra.


Thanks for the visit!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

A dramatic and inspirational page. I especially love the "stained glass" look of the stencil. It reminds me of the Notre Dame and works perfectly with your Parisian photo. Happy New Year. I look forward to seeing your fabulous work. :)

A beautiful layout and a wonderful pic of your family at the tube entrance. I love Paris too and I love the layout that you created. The snowflakes are just gorgeous and I love that mask. I have just got myself a whole bunch of LSG mists and cant wait to get back home to play with them.
