Usually I'm pretty modest, but...

...I just think this layout is so awesome! I love the colours, the shine, and the paisley chipboard water droplets, and I especially love the painted and stamped journaling block. The Design Dollies elements challenge this week is to use a song title in your project, so I wracked my brain, and finally stamped my U2 song in black Staz-on onto my photo. I think I may have missed the deadline on this challenge, though. Note to self: stamp photo BEFORE attaching it to the page. I had to fill in the letters with black pen because they didn't go on right. The paisleys I painted hot pink, then dumped glitter on. Then I had more story to tell, so I wrote on my photos. Usually I use a sketch for inspiration, but this time the design is all my own. What do you think? I showed my husband, but he just grunted. Maybe if I showed more enthusiasm for his upcoming goat hunt, he would show more excitement for my best layout EVER...

Supplies (all CTMH): White Daisy cardstock, Classmate Alphabet My Acrylix stamp set, Exclusive Inks stamp pad in Black

Other: Staz-on ink in Jet Black, Maya Road chipboard, Deco Art paint, unknown glitter and ribbons, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, patterned paper by Doodlebug, date stamp, Creative Memories pen
