The theme for this week is 

Anything Goes (sort of) 

Well, it is anything goes but not quite anything goes, LOL!

Let me explain.....

At each designer's blog, we listed ONE ITEM as the required item for this week challenge
for me is to used mist or spray on your project
you will have to hop over to other DT's blog to check out their required items

You will only have to use one required item on your project to be qualified for this week's challenge, but of course, we are happy that you could include more than one.

Please also let us know something in your post, which required item you are using, you know, sometimes is hard to tell from photo

So here's my project

I started with plain white cardstock and added this amazing shimmer magic spray

don't you just love that pink?

and then I picked a photo of Clare and I. She managed to come home for a short weekend last month, we took her to the Wynn buffet and had a great time together.

Beautiful blooms are also from Craftsite, I used Rose pack 54

the flower is the perfect size for all your crafting projects, they are slightly bigger than those you can get from Michael's, and there are tons of colors you can choose from at CraftSite.

here comes my favorite part of this layout....

This Marianna butterfly die, this is the first time I try Marianna Design, I have to tell you, not only they are easy to use, cut nicely and best part of it, they embossed beautifully too, and it works with my Cuttle Bug, I just love it!

just look at the details on the butterfly....

a few more close-ups...

Come play along with us, it's fun here at City Crafter Challenge Blog this week

The winner will win a box filled with crafting supplies, isn't that fun?
