monday...AWDML Birthday Celebration!

We are celebrating AWDML's 9th birthday! We have challenges, contests and giveaways all month long! 

My challenge, if you chose to accept, is to use 9 different pattern papers, all by 9 different manufacturers!

I can hear you going, is that even possible? Well, the answer is yes!

Here's a layout that I made to inspire you:

cardstock: Bazzill, Recollections;
patterned paper: Authentique Uncommon 6x6 Paper Pad, Basic Grey Collection Pack Curio, Bella Blvd Christmas Wishes Trees for Sale, Bo Bunny Et Cetera Stamped, Echo Park Victoria Gardens Solids Pink Blossom, Jillibean Soup Dutch Mustard Soup Leeks, Nikki Sivils We Are Family Family Album, Pink Paislee Sweetness Picture Perfect;
letter stickers: Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type (brown, cream, black), Pink Paislee Fashion Script alphabet stickers (green);
brads: Making Memories Jumbo pebble brads (Pink and Brown), Bazzill Collection Bling Brads (Pink);
bling: Kaisercraft Rhinestones (Champagne), Ranger Liquid Pearls (White Opal);
ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Vintage Photo), StazOn Archival Ink (Jet Black);
stamp: Prima Notary Stamp;
tools: Cuttlebug machine, Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page (Wild Flowers), Spellbinders Rose Creations, Spellbinders Labels 4;
other: sewing machine

For this layout, I used all scraps to make the pendants behind the picture. I inked all the edges and machine stitched the pendants to give them more dimension. I also distressed the background paper. I handmade the flowers out of cardboard and added some hidden journaling behind the picture.
Here are some close ups of the layout:

Feel free to scraplift this layout if you wish and I hope that you keep  joining us this week for our birthday celebration!

All challenges will be posted from March 5th to March 8th. You will have till March 30th to link your creations in the Mr.Linky box (scroll all the way to the bottom of the post). For every challenge that you do, your name will be put in a random drawing. The winner will receive $15 GC to the store.
