Forver Love with Pink Paislee and Vintage Voyages with Graphic 45 "Steampunk Spells" Paper Collections!!!

I am posting this a little early since tonight is Halloween and I will be busy Trick or Treating with my two beautiful "fairies"!!!! 

Happy November everyone!!! Can you believe it's November already?!?  Fall is officially in full swing and the temperature is FINALLY getting a little "cooler" around here (In Florida, that means anything below 90 degrees!!!).  

"Forever Love" with Pink Paislee "Secret Crush" Paper Collection
I'm here today to share a wonderful layout I made for my November Creative Monthly Project Challenge over at Colorful Creations.  Your challenge this month is to create any type of project using BLING!!!  That's it!!! You may use as much, or as little as you like.... As long as I can see it, You're in it to win it!!!  
Here's a layout I made using various types of bling:

I used papers and embellies from the "Secret Crush" paper collection, as well as trim by Petaloo and a doily die-cut which I misted using pink Glimmer Mist!  Flowers are from Heidi Swapp and Recollections.  Most were also misted to my desired color.  The butterflies are also by Recollections and again, misted (seems to be a theme here!!!).  I added bling under the flower cluster by the photo and "my homemade bling" under the butterfly, as well as the bling on the butterflies themselves!  Isn't she too stinkin cute?!?  
Here are some close-ups:

"Vintage Voyages" with Graphic 45 "Steampunk Spells" Paper Collection
Another project I've put together is called "Vintage Voyages" which was made for my "Once Upon A Theme" Challenge over at Sketches4All.  This month, your challenge is to create a project (of any type) using the theme "Adventure".  
Here's a look at what I came up with:

I used the Graphic 45 "Steampunk Spells" Paper Collection and embellies, as well as chipboard by 7 Gypsies, and various flowers by Petaloo, Heidi Swapp, and Recollections.  I did a LOT of fussy cutting here... All the pattern flowers that match the coordinating paper behind the background die-cut were fussy cut from a piece of coordinating paper.  I fussy cut ALL the balloons as well.  I also used metal by Tim Holtz, bling by Prima, and of course my favorite, liquid pearls!!!  
For the chipboard word "remember", I started by heat embossing black powder in certain portions of the word.  Then I sanded most of it down and spritzed it with Glimmer Mist.  I finished by adding a light coat of Perfect Pearls and topping it with Liquid Pearls.  Here's a close-up:

Just an FYI... I will be posting WINNERS for my "Enabler" Giveaway tomorrow and have more exciting news to share in just a few days so stay tuned!!!
