Layout - you rock!

Hello hello!

I'm very happy to finally be sharing some new projects with you between DT shares.  I spent a huge amount of time in the last few weeks tidying and sorting at home so that Sunday afternoon I finally had space and time to get my ink on.  

So I went hunting for some new challenges to play with... I've got a few picked out that I have never played in before - so stay tuned for those over the coming week or two as I get inspired and projects come together.  The layout I'm sharing today was inspired by a challenge at an old favourite Scrapping Outback, who have a monthly "White with a twist" challenge inspired by a photo. This month is a gorgeous blue number:

Isn't it dreamy? Here's my take on the colours, with a fun layout featuring (who else?!) The Boy enjoying an ice cream a few days after his first cochlear implant switch on in January 2013.


Layout recipe:
Cardstock & paper -  Bazzill, Doodlebug Designs, Simple Stories
Inky goodness - gold paint, Lindy's Stamp Gang, twinkling H2Os, metallic rub, gelatos
Ephemera - Cocoa Vanilla, Crate Paper, gold heart sequins, bronze curly clips, cardboard tube from roll of rubbish bags (what a great make-do stamp for that glass ring look!),clear transparency sheets, gold pen
Stencil - The Crafter's Workshop
Dies - arrows by Kaisercraft (in clear transparency)
Chipboard - WOW (title "you rock")
