Hydrangea Hippo and Susan K Weckesser Day 1!

Hi Jennifer here...a while back I received a lovely large bag full of products from Hydrangea Hippo.  It was full of flowers, lace, buttons, bling, glitter and other goodies.  I thought WOW! how am i going to choose what to use from the I tried to use as much of it as I could!!!  If you have not heard about Hydrangea Hippo check out the following sites for inspiration and where you can buy lots of goodies to use in your crafting.

I mixed the following products from Hydrangea Hippo Etsy site with Susan K Weckesser Live, Love, Create paper and other goodies!

Here is what I concocted together....I hope you like it, I was "tickled pink" when it was done...One of my fav pics from my last vacation away is the focal point.  I made the flowers by taking the lace and running a stitch along the edge and then pulling it into a circle. Sorry no pictures as it was impossible to take one that showed it.  But is it easy just a needle and thread, in an out along the edge and then pull and knot off.   I then attached stacked buttons and a little crocheted flower a friend made for me.  I tucked the photo into the glassine envelope, as well as the bunch of flowers that I made.  I also layered a paper flower that I pulled apart underneath the flowers, silver leaves and the floral sprays....I finished it off with the pink stick pins and the "Tickled Pink" heart cut from Susan K Weckesser paper.  This is a 6 x 12 layout a size that I like to do once and a while.   

Thanks Hydrangea Hippo for sending me all the sweet products!  I had a blast using them and playing. Keep your eyes peeled for more great projects on this blog as well as HH as well, lots fun things will be posted this week and there maybe a few give aways as well!
Hugs Jennifer!
