My 2 Crafty Chipboard April DT Reveal
Part One

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part one of my April DT reveal to share with you & naturally I
have used lots of gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard.

2Crafty Products Used

A friend of mine (Joanne Bain) has inspired me to try to do the whole "white space" thing.
Now for those of you that know my style, you will know that this is so left of centre
for me, BUT, I gave it a go and you know what, I LOVE it.

This gorgeous little munchkin is my Grandaughter Mia.
You will notice I have her name on my layout in chipboard, well 
2Crafty will do specialty orders. Vanessa at 2Crafty made me a whole sheet
of the word Mia in all different fonts, so I have plenty to use.

All the chippies were firstly coated with gesso, 
followed by a coat of simple acrylic paint.

The Mia word, the 2014 date & the mini hearts were also wiped over
with a little Stickles glitter to add some sparkle.

I think the main feature on this layout, apart from the beautiful photos of course,
would have to be the "Corner Delightfully Floral". Now as the name
 implies it is a corner but I have cut it in two to make it a border strip instead.
How gorgeous is this chippie piece ??
I'll be back in a couple of days with part two.
Until then.
