Proud Day LO

Hi all.. 

As I mentioned on my previous WOYWW post, I was busy creating last night in my ...(very hot and stuffy), craft room! 

Needless to say I wasn't hanging around in there, but I did manage to stop and stay long enough to make this LO.... (tbh I stripped my top off and crafted in my bra!) lol

I used Authentique Classique Elegance as my chosen paper collection for this photo of me on my sons wedding day... and I used the July Scrap our Stash shopping challenge to kick start my inspiration. 

In which I had to choose at least 5 elements from my stash to incorporate into my LO- I've highlighted the ones I've used...

Here is the shopping list:
Washi tape ( camera and striped heart)
Stars (3 or more)
Striped Paper (not lined) (left hand side beneath the washi tape)
Enamel Dots (3 or more) (Top right of the photo)
Polaroid Frame
Buttons (3 or more)
Dimensional sticker (above the photo)
Paper Clip
Arrows (3 or more)
Wood Veneer
Journaling card
Sequins (3 or more) (above the right hand side of the photo)
Use (2) or more types of punches 
Die cut (hat, bag, shoes cluster bottom left of the photo)
Tags (2 or more) (left hand side of the photo)
Flair button
Rub On
Flowers (3 or more)
Cork embellishment

I used white acrylic paint, watered down to make the background and then added the papers from the pad and fussy cut the flowers on the front right, layering all the elements until I was pleased with the end result. 

I felt a little uncomfortable using the pre-printed 'beauty' labels/ tags when making a LO about myself, but if you can't say that on one of the proudest days of my life.. when can you? I hope you'll forgive me on this occasion!
