Allsorts DT # 171 Layers

Morning all,
It's been a manic couple of days back at school this week, I don't know how I ever made it to the weekend in one piece, I've been pulled in so many directions I didn't know whether I was coming or going at times and I hope things settle down soon as I can't keep the rate of pace up for much longer! 
It was my youngest, Jasmine's, first couple of days at school and she's only been going for two hours at a time - I've nearly met myself coming back a couple of times! I've been working at preschool but doing odd hours and I haven't got into any sort of routine yet, I do like my routine lol!
Anyway enough of my waffle, got to get on with my post as it's a full day today visiting friends, having my hair cut and coloured, and my eldest has been invited to a swim party by my bestie Fleur who's daughter is 10 today, OMG double figures!!! It will be my son Joshua's 10th birthday in November - doesn't the time fly!
It's a fab new challenge over at 
 this morning, chosen by our lovely new teamie Sarah, who wants to see lots of 
I love doing layers, the more the merrier for me, that's probably why I struggle with CAS cards lol!

My layers consist of:
 scalloped edged card base with square purple polka dot paper,
next I added a Go Kreate die cut shape with slightly smaller piece of blue polka dot paper cut to fit at the corners (two of the cut corners were added to the image corners)
then on top of that I added two stitched panels using Magnolia blue flurry paper and cut the edges using scalloped stitched Magnolia doohickey, and tied purple ribbon to one of the panels
the image was an LOTV new release that I coloured using promarkers at Dawny P's workshop when I went to Leeds last month - just added some stickles to finish it off, sewed the edges and added cheesecloth and a nestie frame behind
I tucked a Magnolia doohickey tag behind the image (complete with more DP and a snowflake charm)
Lastly I added flowers (big white one - WOC, others unknown origin!) and tucked some nestie foliage in between.
Phew, that was a lot of layers to describe!
After all that, I hope you can join us at Allsorts this week and be inspired by the DT creations to make your own layered masterpiece. We are sponsored by
offering a fab prize of three packs of die cuts!

Thanks so much for visiting me today and the lovely comments that you leave x
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, full of craft perhaps....
I will be back tomorrow with my debut creation for Totally Tilda, I'm both nervous and excited in equal measure so wish me luck!
