52 Week Scrapbook Challenge - Copy a Scrapbooking Idea Out Of A Book

The challenge this week was to copy an idea out of a book or magazine or the internet. We were also encouraged to try a new technique. I'm happy I still have my fun book from the library...the one that inspired me to make my tag from a couple of posts back. There are still so many more pages to inspire me in this book! So that's were this page came from. The book is "Delight in the Details" by Lisa M. Pace. The new technique I tried was glittering my own chipboard and brad. I'd never done that before. I cut out the chipboard flourishes, spread Glossy Accents over them, and generously covered them with glitter. Once they were dry I was good to go on the rest of the page! :o)

I have part of a day to get caught up on what I've been missing and I've really missed a lot :-( Love your Journey Page. I'm one of those that get off the path and need help getting out of the weeds :-) and back on the right road. Love that about this life :-)

Your page for today is delightful in so many ways. I love all the frilly stuff with the ribbon and the glittered chipboard things, the brown are too cute ;-) and this is such a happy page to look at. I love the brown and turquoise colors together.

Hope you are feeling better now that the cold weather is past and spring has finally come.
Love you - Leslie

P.S. Thanks for your sweet comments on the mini.
Huge Hugs!

Ooops, didn't mean to do that...delete my post I mean.

Wow, that's weird, I just posted that I Love to lose myself in the details on my blog and then I hopped over to your blog and found that you got your inspiration from a book Called "Delight in the Details". How strange is that? I think I might love that book!

What a pretty page too! I like that glitter effect. Fun! Thanks for playing along Nancy!

Love the colour combination and love your blinged flourishes too. You have such panache with coloured cardstock and papers - there are so many papers that I would like to own but would never use, I rarely use paper on my cards. I rarely use coloured cardstock either as it takes me far too long to hunt for complimentary colours. So I use white cs and colour with inks or chalks :) I admire people who can use coloured cs and papers so well.
Love and hugs
