A Page to Share from the Weekend

Well as you can imagine I am still very excited about my DT position especially as I received my first pizza box yesterday with goodies to work with :0) :0)
I had planned to share this page at the weekend, but on Sunday I spent most of the day in bed with a mother of all migraines, which has been in the background for most of this week as well. I always get my migraine attacks in clusters so hoepfully by the end of this week I should feel my old self again. I certainly hope so I am almost out of medication & it costs a small fortune!!
As my February Studio Calico kit arrived last week, I was very eager to open it & play. The papers had me dreaming up a page long before the package arrived from the US. I adore cupcakes, they just look so pretty all iced & gorgeous. So naturally, they went well with February & Valentines' & that kind of thing.

Materials List;
February kit Bakers Dozen.
Cardstock; Adobe - Bazzill & Vanilla- American Crafts.
Patterned Paper; Reverse side of Simplicity Patterns - Fancy Pants
Section cut & label punched from Life Stories Recipe, My Mind's Eye.
Doily border stamp; Studio Calico
Stitches rub ons- Antique White; Hambly
Delicious Felties; Sassafras
Pearls & Crystals Baby Blanket; Prima
"i love" -Quickutz Moxie, (cut from the fancy pants paper)
"Cupcakes" font Market, Microsoft. (inked in Pixie Dust chalk ink.)
I mixed up my own mist spray using watercolour paint & used a paper doily as a mask. I blotted some of the spray with kitchen roll so a bit of the original colour showed through around the edges in a cloud pattern. I used my McGill 3in file tab punch to add detail to my photo. I matted the photo to a piece of plain white printing paper just to lift it from all the background shaeds of pink.
