Wow, first layout in I don't know how long. I'm patting myself on the back right now!
It features a photo of my two eldest, Nolan and Ailis, goofing off as per usual.
Seeing I haven't scrapped in so long, I needed to find a sketch to use for inspiration. I used this one from Let's Get Sketchy:
All supplies are from my October Counterfeit Kit. I have CTMH background paper and gold polka dot vellum (wow, love that stuff, it's so gorgeous! I had the rest of my piece laying out, and my husband put a frozen goat salami on the corner, and now it's warped - I was pretty mad! Only a guy would put something wet on something paper, grrrrr!) The yellow patterned paper is Crate Paper, and then there's a Prima flower and butterfly punched from some Simple Stories paper. The doily is one I cut with my Silhouette some time ago from cream cardstock, then I just inked it with some CTMH Moonstruck ink. The feather and button are from a dollar store.
One of the challenges from the folks at Counterfeit Kits was to use confetti on our project. I found some sequins in my stash, but I didn't know how to do them all random. So first I sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in my two corners, then spilled a handful of sequins in those areas. Then I glued each little sequin down by hand. A little tedious, but I'm quite pleased with the results. Unfortunately, my confetti effect doesn't show up that great in my photos.
So that's it for me for today, but I am motivated to get started on my second layout. Wish me luck!
