I CAN Scrapbook!

At least that it is what I'm trying to convince myself. :) I participated in a swap between Paper Popsicles and Shimmerz and was thrilled to receive a whole package of scrapbooking goodies. Now, you all know that I RARELY scrapbook, so bear with me here.

Here's my first layout using some paper from SEI. I used my favorite technique with stamping with Shimmerz. All those tone on tone flowers are very Shimmery. See here!

I inked up my flower stamp with Versamark and then spritzed my Baby's Breath Spritz directly onto the stamp and then stamped...VOILA! So easy and leaves a beautiful effect.

This was my 2nd layout...I couldn't do just one with all of the goodies they sent!!! :) This uses paper from Pebbles. As you can see, I shimmered up my flowers. And here's a better view.

I used Olive green shimmerz on the large flower and then December Sky Blingz on the smallest flower.

Let me tell you...I'm such a novice at scrapbooking that it took me like 5 hours per page to complete, LOL! I need help! Actually, I probably just need more practice. I'm very happy with the results though! :)

Thanks for stopping in!
