Totally Amazing Girl

If you are looking for my NSD challenge and giveaways, click HERE.

Good morning. I have a colorful layout to share with you today. You may have seen it this weekend on the American Crafts DT gallery but I'm sharing the details here today. It's very traditional in Texas and has a lot of meaning to my big, Mexican family, to do cascarones each year. You can buy them or make them (we made ours this year, which is another fun story to tell another day). Then you crack these confetti filled eggs on your loved ones heads. It's total fun. The Easter bunny hid the cascarones at my parent's house and these are the ones my youngest daughter found.
This layout was really fun to do and came together pretty quickly. To recreate, just punch 1" circles out of pattern paper and place them in random circles around the page. Stitch down the page in the middle of the circles.
Next, place die cut and epoxy embellishments in more of the circles, over the stitching.

Add layers of a glittery Polaroid frame, vellum paper and of course a title to complete the layout. I will add my journaling to some of the circles throughout the page.

Created with the May 2014 Gossamer Blue Main kit and add-ons. Get yours today before they are all gone, 'cause these beauties sell out FAST!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to play along with my NSD recipe challenge HERE for a chance to win a $10 gift card to My Scraps & More. You have until midnight CST on May 10, 2014.

This page looks so intricate and a lot harder to put together than you make it sound. I love the colors you used.

Stunning layout! Love all the colors and it does not seem overwhelming either. Did you stamp the original circles or is it AC paper? i did not see it in the kit link. thank you!
