Life is Sweet - Berry71Bleu September Challenge - Things I Love

Hello Everyone

Happy Friday!!!! Yay...always a good day to start the weekend off and get one into that time-off mode.

I have a page up on the Berry71Bleu Blog here today.  This month's challenge is about "Things I Love"....

So firstly I created a board of a few of the things I love.

One of these is my page is about that!:-)

I used one of Marivic's gorgeous tags for this page.  I did put my title over it, but did think it was just perfect, as one can still see that chocolate ganache cake behind the title along with the rest of the tag goodies.

Here's a closer look at the tag.

I used one of my favourite stencils and did some gesso and watercolouring.

The journalling is very "tongue in cheek" and just a little bit of a giggle.
"Admittedly, I have a bit of a sweet tooth and I really do love a decadent cake or pudding.  When one can treat oneself, with a little something sweet, why absolutely not?! My thoughts are that life can be bitter enough and that a little treat can sweeten any day! Marie Antoinette was a woman after my own heart! ;-)

I used the vintage Chic Collection from Heidi Swapp.  It's still a firm favourite!

I hope this added some sweetness to your day!
Have a sweet one...whatever you are doing!

  1. Oh Denise this is fabulous! I love the original design and,of course, the subject matter! Yum!

  2. LOL! Love the journaling....& whole heartedly agree....that tag is perfect for your page.....loooove how the colours seem to be pulled from the cake, too:):) I can't help it...I have to say it....what a fabulously DELISH page:):)!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Oh my goodness! This page is so yummy in every single way. Those photos are really making me hungry now! And wow. Your design, your layers, all of your touches, just look amazing and absolutely gorgeous, Denise!! WOWZA! I love it.

  4. Oh I love cake too.... not before but since I went through menopause I have become the cake and chocolate monster and I suppose that accounts for why I keep putting on weight :P. I love that stencil what or whose is it. I think I need it if I don't have it already :D Love the colours and just a stunning design.

  5. So gorgeous Denise! I love your photos, great theme, yes we all need a little more sweetness in our lives to balance out all the stress! Love your swirly background and beautiful flowers, yum! Lisa ;)

  6. This is fab, truly a work of art Denise!

  7. I really thought I had left some blog lovin' for this - but apparently not! A scrumptious page - rich and elaborate like the sweet morsels on the plates. Like Val, post menopause, I long to wrap my laughing gear around things like this, but sadly the results around the bottom are not a pretty sight!! Gorgeous work :D

  8. Oooh this is really decadent & lovely! Love your clustering & background work - looks amazeballs!!
