Dusty Attic - April challenge

Such pretty colours!!
How can you resist..

I think these colours are so pretty!!

I love the almost 12" leafy frame - it also has a smaller version and a couple of corners too!
So based my layout around this frame - I began be covering the square in Distress 'Seedless Preserve' and Adirondack 'Cool Peri' and then a dabbed a little Distress Crackle in 'Weathered Wood' and while it was still wet sprinkled lavendar micro beads and a little Colour Burst in 'Pthalo Green'.

NEW PRODUCT from My2angels - ask Tracy how you can get one of these?

See how the beads dangle under that sugared bead... so pretty!!
I heat embossed "Tinby Metallic Melts in Teal" and then sprinkled a little White and a little Lindys Stamp Gang 'Merry-go-round Green.. just for a bit of fun!

but they come in other colours too!
It does come with a verse "I believe in love at first sight because I am a Mum" which I love but thought it would make a nice base for my chipboard word 'Artist' which I heat embossed with Tinby Metallic melts (2 coats is perfect!)

I 've added some micro beads in lavendar  over that beautiful piece of resin from 

Those cute mini roses that are dotted around the frame are from
and there is a rainbow of colours to choose from, you will find them in the
Flower section

The White flowers are all Dusty Attic 'Bridal Veil'
'Artist' comes from the Mini Words #3
Highlight come from the Word Pack#17

Patterned paper is StudioLight  from Bella Paperie (SCRAPPLP01 and SCRAPPLP03)
- the hand dyed Muslin is also from Bella Paperie - it comes is so many pretty colours!

The photo is from Donna Downey's visit to Joybells in 2015 - my friend Cathy Cafun and I went to class and we knew a bunch of lovely ladies there - here we are with Karen and Hayley... and Donna, of course! I must have been a little nostalgic as Donna is teaching this weekend at Joybell's and I couldn't get there this time!! I have a bunch of friends who are sharing photos of what I am missing out on, as a bonus!
