take me to the opera

A homemade kit that started with Random by Crate Paper. Then, things just got real random. Hehe.

This layout began with a sketch from Sketchabilities. Some time ago, I had attached that polka dot paper to the lined paper for some other layout and decided not to use it. It was the first thing to go into my Random kit and I decided to give it a whirl for this layout. I usually shy away from dark backgrounds, which is why the white paint is the first thing I wanted to add to this layout.

I was out shopping with my daddy recently and saw this heart stamp on clearance at Michael's. We picked it up for $1. I layered it with this little Maya Road frame and topped it off with a pearl by Studio Calico.

These two corner pieces by Crate Paper have been repurposed to arrows. The yellow paper is from Random and the cloud paper is from Cut and Paste by MME. Good grief, I love that cloud paper. The photo anchor is an old die cut from Grandma's Kitchen by WRMK. The heart paper is from Tea for Two by Cosmo Cricket. I'm a sucker for hearts and clouds.

Some black lace to compliment my dress. The ring of black gems is from Prima. The notebook edge is a punch by EK Success and that paper is from Tea for Two by Cosmo Cricket. The other die cut paper peeking out here is from Restoration by Crate Paper.

The kraft tickets are Maya Road and the sentiment ticket is MME. The vintage card is from Crafty Secrets.

I really thought I was gonna go for my fluffy flowers stash for this layout. I have one drawer for vintage themes and I found these chipboard and cardstock flowers first. I layered them and really liked the result. The musical dot is from Prima. The yellow butterfly was stamped with Brookside Manor and cut with Garden Romance Die. The sentiment is a die cut from Memories by Teresa Collins. That little polka dot chipboard piece is from Random.

These tags were RAKed to me from Wendy. They might be from a Studio Calico kit? The heart is from a The Paper Studio punch. The pearl is Studio Calico.

Those sweet little buttons are from Oct 31st by Fancy Pants. The "remember" chipboard is from Memories by Teresa Collins and I topped it with a little bow.. The journaling ticket is from Colorbok.

Thanks for stopping by!

I always have to chuckle at what you were able to use so well and what I couldn't figure out for the life of me! Love the string of pearls, that was a perfect touch.

Great job with the sketch! Dont you just love when discarded paper from past layouts that never turned out end up working on a newer layout? A big reason I save everything, even if I don't use it when first intended! :) Thanks for joining us at Sketchabilities!
