Step 1. Creating the background
Tear 4 28cm strips of Yours Truly tape & attach to white cardstock about 1cm from the edges.   Starting from  the top left, stamp with KC script, working you way down & across to the right bottom.  Spray once into glimmer mist lid & drip your first drop ¼ down & to the right side onto white cardstock, Spray again into lid & drip the second drip centre ¾ down. Cut a few strips from Yours Truly-Ephemera pp making sure you cut the I love the best strip from pp, Ink the edges black & attach with foam squares except the I love the best strip set it aside.
Step 2.
Fussy cut out the elephant with balloon & 1 cloud from Yours Truly-Polka pp & ink edges then set these aside. Cut a 16cmx14.3cm rectangle from Yours Truly-Polka pp using the same side from where you just cut balloon & elephant from. Also need a14.5cmX17cm rectangle from the reverse Yours Truly-Polka pp, cut the pattern on the right side & a 14.2cmx 11cm rectangle from Yours Truly-Chevron pp & from your Yours Truly Giant rhinestone package in half (as shown).
Ink all edges in black. Then start with the 14.5cmx17cm rectangle in Yellow attach these with foam squares, next is the 16cmx14.3cm rectangle grey piece attach this with Foam squares. Then attach your packaging piece again with foam Squares & lastly add the red Chevron piece slightly on an angle.
Step 3.
Attach photo onto Chevron paper with foam Squares. From the Yours Truly-whatnot attach the frame with the chevron on the corners 7 attach this foam squares. Also from the whatnots fussy cut the 2 & you + me=us & attach (as shown).
Attach that I love the best strip.
Step 4.
Attach the Prima flowers, the elephant with cloud all with foam squares. Then attach the Yours Truly-Giant rhinestones

Step 5.
Cut off the s on the WOW chipboard Sisters & ink this with yellow. Add the brads and attach with foam tape, the letters from the GD – teeny alpha & then attach the Chipboard word sister.
Final Step.
