2 page layout and a cool glimmer mist idea

I've just about got everything put away from CKC and my home all cleaned up.  Yay!   One of the layouts I made there was this 2 page spread by Creating Keepsakes.  I've noticed that their sketches tend to be simplistic.  I loved the reminder to use your old brads on flowers of your pattern paper.  I've also used the last of Lara's birthday pictures on it.

So here's a really cool idea we got from Tattered Angels.  Lay down some lace on a piece of paper and then spray it with glimmer mist.  

How cool is that?!  I need to get a huge piece of lace so I can do it to an entire 12x12 page.  Then you can wash the lace and reuse it.  That is maybe my favorite tip in the class.  

This morning Nicholas was running a little behind as I was urging him to get his sweatshirt and shoes on.  His reply was, "You can't hurry a guy along, mom."   I had to laugh at that one.  'Course I did it all the same :)

See ya later,
