Royal Treatment Makeover ~ Frosted Designs Fussy Cutting

This week's Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to use a "fussy cut" in your project.

One of my friends nominated me for a Makeover at our local outdoor mall.  There were three of us who won!  We got to model clothes (mine were from Coldwater Creek) and have our hair and make up done at Ulta.  I was so nervous, but had so much fun!!
I love this paper from K&Co. and had to work it into my layout!!
Here was my original sketch.  I knew I wanted to hide some photos, but I changed the background a little bit.

I opened a 12 x 24 mat on my Gypsy and started my layout.  I put a fancy page from Elegant Edges on my mat at 12.01w x 11.46h and rotated it -90 degrees so the flourish/swirl was on the side.  I put the border on the mat at 11.06w x 2.38h and rotated it -90 degrees.  I moved both of these items to Layer 3.
I found this flourish on Home Decor sized at 9.11w x 3.09h.  I copied a second one on, flipped it and welded it together to create this corner.  My good friend Sheila from ShesASassyLady first did this on a project a while back and I love the look!  I also copied a second border, sized it to 6w x 1.29h and welded a rectangle to it so I could sandwich it between a photo and photo mat.
Here is a close up.  I cut these pieces out in light blue shimmer cardstock.

I took a piece of 8x6 cardstock and folded it in half at the 4 inch mark.  I opened it up and adhered the two pictures I wanted hidden inside.  I sandwiched the blue border piece between the top photo and the cardstock to create a flap.
This is the photo I put on the top.  This young lady did a great job on my make up.  She graduated a year after my oldest son!
Here are the two inner pictures.

I found my title on Storybook and sized the letters to 2.23 inches and cut them out in silver paper.  I also found the word "beautiful" from Home Decor and cut it out at 1 inch.
I saved the negative piece of paper and used it as a template to adhere my letters down.
I accidentally threw this piece away and had to dig it back out!!!

I added some gems and flowers to my flourish.
I tucked in a few flowers by my photo.
I adhered the word beautiful right on my photo of the "after" shot.

Here is my before shot on the stage.  We went on stage before the concert started.

Here is my after shot after an hour of pampering.
Here is my fussy-cut layout all together.  Join us this week at Frosted Designs with a fussy-cut layout, card or project this week ~ we would love to see you!!
