I Am a Creative Scrapper Today!

I Love Creative Scrappers! The sketches at Creative Scrappers seriously rock, so I was very excited when Kristine asked me to be the guest designer for this week's sketch, designed by Nicole Nowosad. And what a cool sketch it is--very different from the way I usually build my pages:

I loved all those circles floating around the page, and I immediately thought of the Webster's Pages ballon paper. And then I went looking for a photo, and when I saw this one of my nephew and me with him looking so tall (or maybe I'm shrinking), I had the perfect theme for my page. 

I was thrilled to find that large clock in my stash to hold my title. I added some dots to give it more texture with puffy paint.

I love combining old and new stuff. I've had these 7 Gypsies papers in my stash FOREVER. I thought they look pretty updated with the Webster's Pages balloons. I added some gold puffy paint around the frames to give them a little dimension.

I love these rhinestone brads by CK that I bought at Jo-Ann's years ago--I love the outer edge of them. The trim tucked under the striped paper is actually the backing from some K&Co. paper lace.

The design team at Creative Scrappers is awesome, so you should definitely go check out what they made with this fabulous sketch!
