My first Lay-Out!

Hi all,
Today I made my very first lay-out ever!
I've tried to put as many different ideas and techniques in it as possible without cluttering the page.
A little while back I read a post on May Flaum's blog about Flat Lay Outs and I decided I would try to keep it as flat as possible.
I'm really pleased with the end-result, considering I've never did this before.

Here are some picture's :

I've distressed the edges of the top layer of cardstock with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and the Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
I have to admit; when I first opened the mail and took out the distresser my first reaction was : That's it?
But tiny as it is, it works like a charm!

I've distressed some beautifull white lace with the Pumice Stone Distress Ink and put it between the two layer's of cardstock all around the edges.

I embossed the brown paper with the brickwall embossing folder and torn of the left side of the paper to create a distressed look.

I've used lots of K&Company cut-outs all over the lay-out because the colours and sentiments worked perfectly with the cardstock pattern and the story of my lay-out.

And offcours I used the Sizzlits Die # Flourish!
I had to use my Big Shot as much as I possibly could just because I wanted to use it! LOL!!

Instead of a picture I used a stamp of a mask surrounded by butterflies.
Although I've never used the stamp before it is my favourite because of the image itself.
I speaks to my imagination!

The story of this lay-out is my advice in live;

Follow your heart, Just be yourself, Wonder, Grow, Play, Love and Live.

I'll be entering this lay-out in the following challenges :
