Charms Creations - January challenge!

Charms Creations started a new group on Facebook with a CHALLENGE!!

The challenge was to use a 'Map Marker' and the location on a layout - I had no 'map markers' so I messaged Charmane and requested 5 of the same colour and 5 various colours - service was speedy and they arrived just a few days later... impressive as each is hand made!!

I've had such fun incorporating them into a few layouts but
this is the one especially for the challenge -

I started with an old piece of Kaisecraft 'After Five' specialty PS125 "Confetti", trimmed half the clock acetate (left the white side for something else?) I purchased a NEW Stencil by Kutalicious from Scrap Elegance and used it with some Viva Croco in Metallic Silver AND I sprayed it with Dylusions 'Black' ...and used the negative too! The large chipboard heart have been heat embossed with Stampendous aged Silver, Aqua and Black. The crystal sprigs are from Auzz Trinklets & Krafts and the lace from TJ's Scrapping with Style. Various brads and bits & pieces from my stash!!
The foil paper of the background is difficult to photograph so the location is difficult to see.... so I'm going to use the "MOON" for the challenge! (haha)

Photo was taken of my MIL and FIL almost 23 years!!

    1. Yes, the map markers make a 'huge' flower - Thank you :)
