Makeover Monday

I was so excited that Papercrafter's Library had a scrapbooko page for a makeover Monday challenge, I decided I just had to try it!  My page didn't exactly turn out the same way, but after plenty of tweaking, I finally came up with a layout I was pleased with!
I am just in love with this new Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts, so I pulled out some of the new papers from my recent Studio Calico kit, Daydream Believer. 
I added a few Dear Lizzy stickers and a butterfly from The Gilded Bee. 
Under the bottom right picture is a candy bag from Pebbles.  I decided to use that to hide some journaling inside.  I took more of the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan paper for journaling on one side and added a picture that didn't fit in the layout on the other side of the journaling tag. 
For the title, I added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds to the balloons.  I pierced holes and connected them with my white gel pen for some faux stitching in the corners.  Finally, I added some Peach Atyou Spica gel pen coloring over the word Fun in the title.

And I think I've made it....just in the nick of time!!!
