Good Friday morning dear blogging friends!!!

Okay so I have had the template for this...oh...for probably two years or so and thought this would be the perfect time to get working on it as I get to go crazy with my stash!!!

This typewriter template is from Sandra's Scrapshop and I just HAD to take many pics to get all the details in...LOL!!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
this template comes complete with the keys and keyboard...
 angled view to see the return bar, sides, roll and spacebar...
I added lace with rhinestones anywhere that I
 return bar...
as you can see I used the always fabulous Maja Designs paper...
 and this little sweetie is "Loves Me, Loves Me Not Tilda" (with her accompanying text) from the newest Love Duo 2015 collection...
I just had to add Frantage and Glamour Dust...
 the  keys, keyboard, nameplate and space bar...
decorated with flowers, die cut corners, pearls, butterfly dies and ribbon...
 closer view of the keys cause I thought this was just so cool looking...
 Magnolia So Wrapped Lovely tag die decorated with stick pin, ribbon, beads, tiny heart with pearl...
I crossed out the "You!" and put "me!!" cause...well...this is for me!!!!...
I used Memory Box Macarena Corner for the mauve sprigs...
 the mauve paper behind the text paper was embossed using a heart patterned embossing folder by Darice...
 closer view of the embossed paper, lace, dies and ribbon with flowers on it...
