Good morning and Happy Saturday scrappers!

I’ve been playing with stencils and some new glitter paste from Bo Bunny. With anything new, I WANT every color, but always buy just one or two “basic” colors. So I bought black and gold. The black I used on a previous layout (One in a Million) and it spread evenly using a heart stencil by Heidi Swapp. So when I opened it up to use the gold, I expected the same results. But that didn’t happen. It came out clumpy and uneven. Ugh…it was UGLY. So I thought it was my paint brush and the size of it, so I went with a smaller one and nope, that wasn’t working either. It spread thinly….but not even. It was see-through! NOT the effect I wanted! So then I grabbed my gold gelato and used that first with the heart stencil. Then came back and “painted” on the gold glitter paste. And THAT, my scrappy friends, is the result I wanted!

I let it dry overnight and came back to it, layering my papers, my photo and other embellies and OMG….LOVE how it turned out!

I used MME “My Story” collection. I usually don’t buy all of a collection by MME, but this one spoke to me. The bold patterns. The flowers. The GOLD. LOVE it!

My favorite part of this collection has got to be the die cuts. I had bought the paper pack, stickers, chipboard, brads, veneers and enamel dots at a local scrapstore called Wooten’s in southern California back in January. While I was at Hobby Lobby earlier this week, I saw that they had MME die cuts too! And lo and behold, “My Story” was one of them! I just LOVED them. And that banner at the top is from that package. I thought it was the PERFECT touch!

This layout is based on this week’s Let’s Get Sketchy sketch:

Team B Week 2

I LOVED the cascading stars with little sprinkles and all the layers! The design is awesome too!

This layout is also for ACOT’s Guest Designer Challenge #4 – “Happy Place”. The challenge was to scrap about your happy place, whatever it is. For me, its my scrap room. And since I just had a crop at my house last month, and we took a group picture, I thought it was perfect!

Photo Bomb

Miss Penny Lane is FAMOUS for photo bombing others, whether it be Jeffrey, Ruby and Bear, or people. ACOT’s Title Challenge is about exactly that! Title must be “Photo Bomb” and we had to incorporate a camera element.

Photo Bomb

I used some super old camera pattern paper from Provo Craft and stamped a camera onto white cardstock, fussy cutting it and adhering it using pop dots.

My title is some old Basic Grey chipboard alphas. They were actually a pale blue, and I used some new Bo Bunny glitter paste in Licorice to color them.

I added this star die cut using my Cricut machine.

The layout is based on the following Let’s Get Sketchy sketch:

I loved the overall design of the sketch, swapping out the two small pics for one.

And speaking of “photo bombing”, guess who decided “bomb” my picture taking of this layout?

LOL! If you guessed Miss Penny, you were right! What a silly girl!
