Second time around

Hi Nikki fans,
This is my second blog post here.
This time not only my own work but I have a special layout by a special person.
But first let me tell you about my layout with U R My Favorite.A few months ago Nikki held a contest amongst the DT Divas.
The winner would go to CHA to work with Susan and Nikki at the booth. I started on this the very next day cause the change to see the girls and go to CHA was a big dream. Here you see the layout I made. I fell in love with this paper line as soon as I saw the colors. It's such a sweet line to work with.
I handcut the flowers, used a little Shimmers on it. The shoe is chipboard, and covered with Glossy Accents. Wish I had a shoe like that! lol!
Don't you just love the little flags? I colored it with a color spray, stamped with Nikki's alpha stamps and used some floss around the wooden stick.

Now here's the special layout I was telling you about.

It's made by my dear friend Monique Liedtke. She's such a sweetheart and so talented.
She used My Sweet Cherry Pie, the photo's of her DD Manon are so right for this paper.
See how she used the sowing machine? Even on the tree!

Monique, thank you so much for letting me show your layout. It's stunning!
You can see more of Monique's work on her blog. Do leave her some love.
Thank you again for reading my story and looking at the photo's
You can find me at my blog. I will be playing with some more U R My Favorite.
I will show you some new projects as soon as CHA is starting.
You can find the start of one of the projects on my blog.
So exciting to have my work up there. Thanks Nikki!
PS: I didn't win the contest! Julie Tucker is the lucky girl.
