041216 CKC April Challenge #2

C'est Magnifique, N'est Pas?

Challenge # 2: Choose any project from the C'est Magnifique February Kit Posts and let it inspire you! Don't forget to let us know where you found your inspiration when you link up your projects!

I chose this layout by C'est Magnifique 
Design Team Member Shanna Shands to scraplift:

her process video HERE
I was eager to use the wooden frame in my kit,
and I loved the idea of framing up a tag.
That gave me much less real estate than working on an entire page!

I used this gold foil Wildflower Thickers word "xoxo" for my title.
I painted my frame gold but I wish I had foiled it with a grungy shabby treatment.

Here's a good look at the tag:

I lifted the crepe paper idea from these tags in Susan's kit this month!

Here's the full page.
I chose that fab Felicity Jane background paper with a nod to some hidden symbolism (Whimsical Musings prompt #205) going on with  the roses. There are some beautiful woven roses on the preciously hoarded scrap of antique ribbon at the top & the Prima flower is also a rose - all a nod to Alex's nickname when she was little. 

This photo is the peaches enjoying an Easter weekend outing. 
Sure wish they weren't so far away :(

I would venture to guess that there is something for everyone in the gallery,
so click on the link at the prompt above to find your magnifique inspiration!
Don't forget to link up so we can enjoy your creativity.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Awesome layout Leslie! I love all the little details you included - perfectly accessorized without distracting from the photo. The little black gingham ribbon with the key is my favorite little bit (I think) and it perfectly ties that frame with the pretty floral background paper.

    1. Thx, Susan - your comments are always delightful & a great encouragement.

  2. This layout is stunning Leslie. You are on a roll.

    1. Thx Julene! It's this crazy kit! I'm determined to make it fresh :)

  3. Ah, hidden symbols is perfect! I love all those little secrets and this is truly a gorgeous layout. I guess I need to give this challenge a go!

  4. Vintage with real pop! Love it.
