Crazy for Complements! (CTMH Technique Blog Hop)

The CTMH Technique Blog Hop group is Crazy for Complements, and you will be, too!  Complements are beautiful artwork and embellishments to take your crafty projects to the next level.  (If you're already hopping then you've arrived from Judy Faye's blog.  You'll visit Darlys's blog next.)
My Sophomore Year layout uses not one but TWO sets of Complements: the NEW Hello Lovely Complements paired with the School 7-12 Complements.  You'll see how I paired them up in the close ups below.  I used quite a collection of products to show off my beautiful daughter's 10th grade school picture.  I started with Kraft bases to which I added 11"x11" squares of the gold polka dot vellum from the Uptown Fundamentals paper collection.  The gold and white band across the bottom is also from that paper pack.  The pale pink paper is from the Hello Lovely paper suite, which the black mattes are from the retired Swan Lake paper.
 The star is from the School complements and the ribbon, flower sticker, and gold arrow 3-D sticker are from Hello Lovely.
 Here is the right page.
 The School chipboard heart nestled inside the 3-D Hello Lovely heart, well, beautifully!
 The chipboard pieces are from the School Complements, but the sticker and ribbon are Hello Lovely.
 The gold glitter gems are also part of the Hello Lovely collection and can be purchased in a small pack or they come with the Hello Lovely Workshop Your Way.

Thanks for letting me show you how well different Complements can work together and for showing off my beautiful daughter.  Be sure to go see how crazy DARLYS is for Complements!  (Be sure to leave some compliments along the way too!)
