I had admired chippies from Creative Embellishments for ages but had never purchased them before thinking the shipping would be too expensive from the U.S. Well....I was wrong. They have a great range and really reasonable prices that help offset the shipping costs anyway, but their flat rate for overseas shipping is $US8.50 which is very reasonable.
So when I received my little parcel I couldn't wait to use my new chippies and how fitting that my first layout they would appear on would be joining in with the July challenge over at Creative embellishments.
I was inspired by the colours in the image and also included stars in my layout, which was the challenge twist. The Life By The Sea Collection papers by Maja Road were perfect for this colour scheme.
I made a puddle by drawing a shape on some paper and adding some glossy accent polka dots before cutting it out.
