Girl in the spotlight


Papers : Minds Eye, Cosmo Cricket, CTMH Textured CS, Bazzil Textured CS

Stamps : Simple Stitches

Accents : Dimensional Elements Alphas, Doodlebug Orange Glitter, Chipboard Stars, Buttons (various), Minds Eye confetti ribbon; Minds Eye accent, title, journaling prompt, and transparency

This has got to be one of my favorite layouts. I love the colors, the sparkle and all the dimension, so many fun little details and especially this crazy face Caitlyn is making in the picture. I started out with a sheet of Honey textured CS. Using another sheet of scalloped CS as a template I traced then cut the scalloped edge on my Honey CS and used the lighter back side. I played with a few scraps I had, the dotted paper and orange floral (minds eye) and the green flower (cosmo cricket) until the layers looked right then added a bit of my new striped minds eye paper to pull it all together. I am loving the new spring Minds Eye sets. The star transparency, 'in the spotlight' title, journaling prompt and bracket are all from a few different sets that are very interchangable. The orange stars are from a multipack of chipboard I got that came with hearts, stars, and flowers. I covered them with textured Autumn Terracota CTMH CS then sanded the edges and top. I used some textured bazzil for the plain green. Goldrush ink was used to stamp the stitching and goldrush CS to mat the picture. The chipboard letters were simply covered in glue and then had the orange Doodlebug sugar coating sprinkled on top. A lot of work went into this layout and I am so happy with the results!

What a beautiful LO this turned out to be. All your hard work was worth it! I love the colors you used and the sparkle on
the letters looks great!I wish CTMH would sell the scalloped paper. You had a great idea to use another for a template.
