First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to read and comment on my last post, you all made me feel a whole lot better after my cupcake fiasco! And even though I still believe they were the ugliest cupcakes around, they WERE edible and Ailis's teacher told me last night at judo that they were fantastic because everyone could read the numbers on them (one mom put saran wrap directly on her cupcakes, and the numbers got ripped off with the wrap, so at least I didn't make THAT booboo!) So, all that work and worry and it was no big deal after all - needless to say I've learned from my mistakes and I am now working on a SMASH book page to commemorate it!
Anyway, onto my layout for today:
This is the first layout I've completed using my February Counterfeit Kit, and I learned a lot by making this one! Number one: if you're stuck for a page title, google it! I can't remember where I found this one, but it was on a page with TONS of sports titles.
I also played around with making some handmade embellishments:
So, I managed to incorporate several challenges into the making of this page:
Scrapbooker's Anonymous: use three hearts (at least) and some stitching on your layout
Scrapbooker's Paradise #54: use real or faux stitching
Frosted Designs: use eyelets or brads
Thanks for looking!
