Morning, Afternoon or Evening to you all!!
Just stopping to share with you my Step By Step for this month over @ Anna's Craft Cupboard

Materials needed:
*Echo Park Everyday Eclectic-Chevron Woodgrain paper,
*Echo Park Everyday Eclectic- Kraft Doily paper,
*Echo Park Everyday Eclectic-Large Hexagon paper,
*Echo Park Everyday Eclectic-Elements Stickers,
* Sawyer's Place Washi Tape -Ophelia Regal Damask & Turquoise blue white dots tape,
* Kasiercraft – Wooden Flourish 
*MFT - Rounded Banner Trio Rounded Banner Trio Die,
* Turquoise buttons
(Not shown Green Glimmer Mist & Black Ink)
Materials needed to create background:
*6x6 Crafters Workshop – Art Is template,
*Kaisercraft – Journal Stamp,
*MME- Lost & Found 2 – Blush “Princess” Stamps,
(Not shown Tattered Angels – Glimmer mist Turquoise Blue, Black Ink & Modelling paste)
Step 1  
Creating the background. Apply Modelling paste using the CW – Art is Template, to the top right side & again at the bottom left side of Cardstock. Then with the template, place the template down onto the opposite sides of where you have applied Modelling paste, So that it leaves bits of the paste there as well.
Once dried, lightly stamp over the Modelling Paste with the - Kasiercraft Journal Stamps. Next Stamp with the Flourish & the word Charming Stamps from the MME Stamps. Lastly Spray the Glimmer mist at the top right & bottom left, Drip a bit of glimmer mist on the top right letting the drips to run down the cardstock a little.
Step 2  
Create Hexagon frame. Cut out some of the hexagons from the EP – large Hexagon paper leaving behind the white hexagon frame work & some of the hexagons, then cut away a bit of the frame work & attach this bit to the top left side, Then attach larger frame work to the bottom right.  Tear 3 strips from each Washi tape & Attach!

Step 3
From the EP Sticker sheet attach the Hello my love rectangle sticker below & to the left side of the Strips of Washi Tape that are on the right hand side. Then Cut approx 11 ½ x 15 ½ cm rectangle from EP Chevron Grain paper ruff & ink edges. Place 1 of the photo’s onto edge & sightly on an angle of rectangle (as this will be straight when attaching it to the Cardstock) then attach the other photo so that it is in the Centre of the rectangle with foam mount tape. Attach the rectangle paper/photos to the Cardstock, attach buttons.
Step 4
Cut from the EP – Kraft Doily with the MFT - Rounded Banner Trio Rounded Banner Trio Die, enough to make 3 banner s, ink edges & attach 1 banner to the left & the other 2 on the right. Now grab some of those Hexagon’s that we cut out before, Ink the edges & placing them though out the layout.

Final Step
Spray the Kaisercraft – wooden Flourish with a light Green glimmer mist, once dried cut into 3 pieces & attach 2 pieces right hand side & the other piece on the left side. Finish off by adding the Stickers from the EP – Everyday Eclectic Element Stickers. Attach some of these with Foam Mount Tape.
