Another Layout from the...

"Big Book of Scrapbook Pages" to share. I originally did this one for a Creating Keepsakes call for layouts using glitter. The negatives from the chipboard sheet saved me! I had the big flourish but had used the smaller one on a previous layout. Tracing the negative onto another sheet of chipboard and cutting it out solved the problem!

Fussy cut the flowers from the patterned paper and the vellum underneath. Doodlebug glitter on the flourishes, then sprayed them with fixative to help the glitter stay! I still had glitter everywhere when I was done. I would go somewhere and people would say " Do you know you have glitter on your face?"!

Those 2 had such a great time that summer!

Time to work outside for a while & then to Saint Joseph for a trip to Silver Beach, the carousel, giant fountain and whatever else we can find. My sister is here from TN with my niece. Our Great Uncle passed away and the funeral was yesterday. He loved fishing...maybe that is who Matthew inherited from :)

This is such a fun lo Beth! I love the bright colors and you are a brave woman for using all of that glitter! Great tip for using the negatives on your chipboard shapes!

Sorry about the loss of your great-uncle.
