I love a good mystery~The Paper Mixing Bowl

It's our new reveal day at the Paper Mixing Bowl, and we have a brand new challenge and recipe for February. Here's my take on red velvet cake.
Here's a look at the recipe and how I used it.
*I used layers
*Frosting ( I used gesso on the cream Bo bunny pp)
*2 is better than 1 (I used more than 2 flowers and puzzle pieces)
*Spill something ( I have a coffee stain on my background paper, but I think it's hidden now. )
*Hearts and flowers ( I have a chipboard heart in my title and used 4 different flowers)
*Multi-photo ( I used 11 photos of some of my favorite books)

I used love (my heart)  in my title as a journaling prompt.I'm also using this for the Four Categories Challenge at  for category 4 with the theme I love ..... and the twist to use a heart. I made a bookmark for my journaling.
I started this page by making a book, which is stamped and painted.It's hard to tell from the photo, but I painted the sides of it gold, and made the cover to look like red leather.  I also stitched a line down the center. I made the magnifying glass out of gold paper, ribbon, and Glossy Accents. It was fun to make!
The white flowers were a RAK from Funtoolas which I covered with red paint. I made the cream and brown flowers using this tutorial for Sugarplum Flowers  by Vicky Alberto.
Thanks for stopping by and for all the sweet comments!
