Hello and welcome to my blog today. Well I got to go shopping today, I even looked for more Glitz papers but NO, I could not find any grrrr. And I am just loving the papers too, good thing I have a few pieces to use up. I would hoard them but I am trying to not hoard scrappy goodies and use them up instead. This layout is using the Glitz Love Games collection papers and goodies. I did lots of distressing, inking, used lots of layers and Dusty Attic. I used a sketch from Stuck On You Sketches…it is just an amazing sketch to work with. This layout came together so fast. The photo is me and hubby.

I used lots of pop ups to try and make the layers stand out. I also did some masking on the red layer. You can see the DA leaves and chicken wire tucked in with the flower cluster.

In this corner is a DA scroll that is covered in smooch paints and I added some gems.

On the top corner is the DA butterfly that I soaked in water so that I could peel the chippy layers. This is also a good view of all the distressing.

This is a side shot so you can get an idea of the layers and depth on this layout.

Well that is it for today…I do have two more layouts completed and will post them soon. I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend, and happy Memorial Day to my US followers. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
