... I'm a Clown

This is my third layout featuring the July Kit from Snobby Walrus Paper Crafts. (Yeah, these pictures might be a little familiar... this is another case of me scrapping the same photos a second time, to give a copy to my mother - Hi Mom!)

So, this month's kit included a tube of loose glitter from Pink Paislee, much to the amusement of my scrappy pals. You see, I have glitter issues. It's not that I don't like the look (au contraire), it's that working with it makes my skin crawl. I can't stand having it on my hands (and inevitably on my face and in my eyes. If you're reading this Sam - yes - I got it in my eyes. Again.)

But this colour was such a nice blue, I put on my big girl pants and tried to make nice with the glitter. Using Glossy Accents as a glue, I changed the colour of the chipboard letters in my title...

and added some sparkle to the circle in the die cut paper:

These chipboard buttons from Jenni Bowlin made great embellishments for a boy page.

There are some gorgeous embellies in that kit! Love your page and yes I remember about the glitter. It's great that you were able to put on your big girl pants because I just love what you did with it! :D
