Counting My blessings!

Happy Monday ladies.. I've had some time this weekend to create a few projects and this is one of them.. Its my design team project for Generations Crafting..
  I was lucky to get these Glitz Hoopla papers and I will admit at first, I did scratch my head for a few days cause the colors were not something that I was used to playing with.. But, with a little hard work, I finally got everything together and I'm so delighted with this layout..
 I wanted to use Black cardstock, but I had none so I used a sheet from another one of Glitz's collections..
Distressed Couture.. Which was absolutely perfect for the base of the marquee..
Here are some close ups:
Prima flowers and Pearls
When I was trying to think of a title for this layout, 
I seen this quote while searching the internet for word art.. I loved it and it's perfect..
and the cluster of flowers.. I had bought these silk flowers a few years ago and never
had the chance to use them.. but, I finally found a perfect layout for them..
I hav no idea who the manufacturer is, since I threw the packaging away a while ago..sorry!
