"Celebrate!" - My Last Layout for INKIDO

Hi everyone!  Back with a layout today.  It's been TOO LONG I agree!!
But they are on their way now as I have another 2 projects to share after
this.  You can see this one up at INKIDO here.  It's my last month with 
them :(  I love their products but 5 teams is my limit & I have been
with them for quite some time now...

I used several of their beautiful papers enhanced with some golden mist,
a grungy corner stamp from INKIDO & some brick-wall texture paste
& embossing.  I was following the mood board for the June challenge.
It's lovely & grungy/antiquey so plenty of opportunity for paper-tearing
 {one of my favourite high-tech techniques} LOL & roughing things up 
a bit with texture paste & chunky embossing.  Drool...

I used loads of lovely INKIDO flowers & oak leaves, all misted up & stamped randomly.

The backing paper is "Beige Anemone"from the Beautiful Memories Collection.
It is uber pretty in real life.  I enhanced it with some lovely new Prima sparklers.

The lovely black swirls & title come from KI Memories {REMEMBER those?!} 
I adored them & still do - they make for great FLAT embellishing!

And of course I had to tuck in some more Prima lace/bling from
one of their older border strips.  Seriously yum & decadent.

Lots more layers of off-cut papers from my Inkido collection,
torn, inked, blended & stamped.  Oooh and distressed too!

I really enjoyed creating this & love how it turned out.
It has a real "Fall"feel to it & as it is Autumn here that's perfect for me!

See you all soon.  Friday tomorrow & I am ready to cosy up in bed
with some hot chocolate & reading material for the weekend.
{Yeah in my dreams - after I've finished off 101 DIY projects that
are spread all over my verandah right now & done a layout or 5 :) }
