{Paradise Adventure} April Stuck?! Sketch & Simple Stories

Hello!  Today I have a layout for you that uses some foiled shapes I created using both my Silhouette PixScan mat and my Heidi Swapp Minc (I have a tutorial here showing you how to do this at home).  Grab some chocolate and come along!

I used Simple Stories You Are Here collection to highlight some photos from my honeymoon back in 2000 (no, I am still working on scrapping the trip 16 years later! And the time warp continues!).  

Here are some close ups.  I love sewing on my layouts.  Aren't the photo stickers and New Bradz awesome?

Here you can see the gold foil anchor I created using my PixScan mat and Minc, along with another New Bradz, enamel dots, and photo sticker.

How cool is this fussycut flower cluster popped up with 3D foam tape?

And here's a close up of the title and journaling.  I used CTMH stamp set "Hello Paradise" and then print/cut/foiled the "adventure" and the heart I stuck on top of the chipboard camera.

I used the April sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
