Hi, It's Haven here at Haven's Haven to share my inspiration with you. 
You should be arriving here from Sue @ Sue's inky fingers blog. 
 If you're joining me here first please make sure to see the full hop list below
Thanks for stopping by
This  entire layout was made using paper cottage 6x6 pad. 
I started by cutting two piece of the mustard yellow paper in half to create 2 - 3x 12 strips.
I did the same with the lace paper but at 1.5 inches and the fussy cut along the scallop.
The center base is two pieces of the blue printed paper.  I hid the seam with the placement of my photo and paper layers.  The solid brown and pink are card stock from my stash, but match well enough.  I also used a piece of dotted paper from the pad as well as fussy cut the printed banners and journal tags from another sheet. The blue longer banner is also from the paper cottage pad mounted on cream cardstock to make it stand out .

The cluster of embellishments are a combo of more paper from the pad that I fussy cut.
 The larger flowers I covered with liquid glass and stuck a hero arts red hue dot into the mostly dried glass.  The blue flowers were also fussy cut from the same page as the red and have hero arts red metallic décor stuck to their centers.  I then scattered the remaining hue drops among the twine
