Full reveal day at C'est Magnifique ~ The Height of Chic~

 Welcome to the full reveal of the January kit for C'est Magnifique Kits, named "The Height of Chic"! But before I do that, I have 2 more layouts I want to share with you! Shabbiness at its best!

My first layout I have to share is called "Perfect Gift" based on the Bible Scripture James 1:17. This is my great niece Cassidy, and she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis just over a year ago, and let me tell you, this little girl is a fighter, and also the Perfect Gift to all those who know and love her. I stole this photo off of Facebook and it was from a recent photo shoot the family had. I love how over exposed it is, and how it makes her blue eyes just pop right of the paper!

 I did lots of paper tearing and layering, and masking , and for me, its clean and simple , Bonnie style! To create this layout I used the Main Kit, the Embellishment Add-on.  From my stash I used: Gesso, molding paste, Prima stencil, paper doily, cheese cloth, Memory Box die, Cheery Lynn Designs flower die,Liquid pearls, mists, Prima Chalk Ink, ,Martha Stewart border punch

 I hamd made some flowers with the pink checked paper from the Main Kit, edged them with pink chalk ink and spritzed them down with water and then crumpled them up. I hit them with my heat gun and then carefully opened them up, layered them and glued them and gave them a hit of Gesso!  I used the gorgeous pink rose ribbon from the Embellishment kit as a frame around the photo. 

Next I bring you a layout featuring Cassidy's gorgeous parents, Kimberly and Jesse! These papers where perfect with Jesse's shirt, and I had to add a pop of color to match Kimberly's sweater! They are such a gorgeous couple! So, here is "So In Love"!

 I did alot of distressing and border punching on this layout. Really shabby chic! I used a mask with distress ink and chalk ink that I then covered with Liquetex Blended Fibers. I had loads of fun mixing the inks to try and get the right shade to match Kimberly's sweater as best I could. I used the Main Kit, the Flower Add-on , the Embellishment Add-on as well. From my stash: stencil, blended fibers, gesso,distress inks, chalk ink, cheese cloth. Martha Stewart border punches, Cheery Lynn Designs flower die.

I made some flowers with the blue damask paper the same way I did the pink flowers in the layout before this one. Just lots of yummy details!
