Using up my GIVEAWAY of Cocoa Vanilla Studio Goodies...

...if you don't follow me on FB, you won't know that I was BLESSED & extremely 
[to put it mildly!] excited to receive THIS from Cocoa Vanilla Studios:
Their new girl collection 'Hello Lovely'. I'm sure that's what it was saying to me!
And not only did the owner of Cocoa Vanilla, Zoe, send me the paper pack.
Gobsmackingly generous giveaway, I reckon.
So, I thought I'd get stuck into it & create. FUN;)
For this one, I ONLY used Cocoa Vanilla Studio goodies, except for 2 markers:
 The little outlined heart is VELLUM! Looove them. The arrows above I left wood, 
but the wooden words in my title, below, I coloured black:
 I never thought I'd ever use bows...but dang it all, they're sooo cute! 
Some of the papers I fussy cut [yuck!] - so the camera, above, under
the 'love' is an example of that.
Below, is my journaling, which is popped on a bit of the pp that I cut up, too:
 There were also alpha stickers - TWO sorts included, see below.
Plus sequins and yummy enamel dots...
 AND FLAIR!! Now d'you understand why I was in Lizzy Heaven???!!!
I altered the word bubble. It was wooden coloured with 'hello'
on it. But I stuffed around so it had to be altered to black, with some alphas added!!
 And finally! Aunty and nephew. The title came cos this is how she described him on FB!!
Now, I MAY have gotten carried away using so many bits and bobs....but you can't blame me???!!!
This time, I went a bit grungy - added some Glimmer Glaze, spray inks onto the bg.
Still, most of the goodies are from my Cocoa Vanilla pack:
Gosh I enjoyed layering up lots of the die cuts onto this page!
I used washi tape for that division down the page...
 Another of those gorgeous flairs:
 My journaling. This couple really have a wonderful relationship:)

And on the 'Life is Sweet' note.....I shall leave you.
I'm sorry for the photo overload. I really do try NOT to take them,
but aaaaah well......
thank goodness for the scroll down button, eh??!!!
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
