The Magic Wand Layout

This is a layout of my daughter from last Halloween.

I have created this for the latest challenge over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby.  She is challenging everyone to use bling.  I used gems and glittery letters so I have lots of bling on my project, but it's certainly one of my favorite things :)  

I started off with a 12 inch piece of purple cardstock and added a sheet of paper from a 6 by 6 pad of Basic Grey paper from their Kioshi line in the top right corner.  

I placed little bits of different colored bling gemstones in the centers of some of the flowers.  Then I started spelling out my title using some sparkly Thickers.  I added a piece of satin ribbon along the very bottom of that paper.

I added another small strip of paper from that pad below it.  I could have used a full 6 inch sheet again, but since a lot of it would have been covered by a picture I cut a strip that was about 2 and 1/2 inches wide and just a little bit got covered.  I finished spelling the title with the Thickers on this piece.

All of my photos are 4 by 6, but the one on the bottom right is partially covered by another photo and is now about 4 by 4.

I did my journaling on the small block of purple that shows from the original sheet.  I used my Gelly Roll pen from Sakura and it worked great even on the textured cardstock.

If you'd like to play along and join in on the challenge you can head on over to Abby's blog to enter your project for a chance to win an awesome prize from Kich N Blues.
