Things I Love with for Creative Embellishments with Romance Novel, Chapter 2!!!

Hello all and welcome to a new month!  February is here which means a month full of all the things I love!!!

Today is the 1st which means a new challenge over at Creative Embellishments!
Here's a look at the inspiration photo: (The twist this month is to use an ombre effect on your chipboard/ create a background!)

My two girls are on the top of my list for things I love so it's no surprise I would use a photo of one of them!  
Here's my page:

I used the "Forever Yours" kit from Frosted Designs to create the page and a variety of CE goodies!
I created my background with various stencils, molding paste, gelatos, and Lindy's magicals until I achieved my desired effect!

I added some stamping with the Distressed Checkered Stamp with black distress ink!

I love flourishes and added one from the Flourish 22 set, adding my ombre effect with a number of different gelatos!

I layered on tons of papers, distressing them along the way, and added some liquid pearls for accents!  I finished with a flower cluster and a wooden heart from the Hearts set, adding another ombre effect to that one as well!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
