She is

Hello, Chic Tags fans! Mandy Koeppen here to share a layout featuring all the pattern papers and some of the awesome embellishments from the Cloud 9 Collection. I wanted to use a mix of a little bit of everything since this collection is so fun. 
At first I wasn't sure what my background would be so I started with a plain piece of vellum on my craft mat. I do this often because I'm a wing-it kind of girl, I go with the flow and some times the background doesn't come in til the end for me. Yes, totally backwards for some of you out there right? It's me though. As you can see I actually kept the vellum in the end layering over the fabulous Cloud 9 "Sunday Best" Pattern Paper with Gold Foil.  I flipped the cute bow ties vertically so that they looked more like hour glasses since this layout features photos of my Teagan on her birthday. 
 I wanted to use all the pattern papers on one layout without overwhelming the layout and design I chose to use my hexagon paper punch.
Once I had the hexagon pattern papers all squared away I dropped a few Veneer Sequins on my page and hello love! The sequins have a little hexagon center so not only are they cute they also stay in that hexagon pattern I was going with. To keep the sequins in place I stitched through the middle to the side. I used the Good Tidings gold Alpha Stickers with a mix of the Cloud 9 Gold Labels to create my large title/journaling. LOVE the gold and crisp white. 

Thanks for joining me on the blog today. I hope I've inspired you to create with the Cloud 9 collection!
Have a great day!
