#4 Challenge

Heidi! Black and White with a burst of colour, doodling, Bling, Flowers, 5x7 photo, Flourishes/Swirls, Rubons and or Transparencies and cut work from pattern paper.
I so enjoyed doing this one! I love black and white so it wasn't hard (but that doesn't mean it was easy!) and it's my favourite for SYTYCS so far. NB: Ema is my Dd and Gail is her cousin, they spend a lot of weekends together playing soccer, going to the hot pools and sleeping over and 'skating' with their Heeley's either here or there. Best Friends was Dd's choice for the title but Best Buds fits in just right! And what a fluke re the dress Dd is wearing!

I painted the TLC Chipboard flourishes with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and then I fell in love. The new little black dress in Scrapbooking... well, it might not be new to you but it sure is to me. The effect is awesome and it really does glimmer/shimmer. It also proved to me how lucky I am that I receive SBO's monthly kits. If I wasn't subscribed to Scrapbook Outlet NZ's gorgeous kits I know I wouldn't have ANY Glimmer Mist in my scrapspace. It's not something I think I would've gone out and bought under my own steam, not when I don't drive and live kinda rural-ish. I rarely get to a scrapbook store, probably Spotlight and Scrapbook Studio in Auckland when I visit my sis more often than Book'em in Tauranga! Hehe, my sis lives 5 mins drive down the road, how could I not take in a visit to the Studio! However, I rarely get up there these days.
Please go check out Trina's totally beautiful layout using Glimmer Mist. It's absolutely stunning. Scroll down to the fifth layout - it's on white background and features a pink crown. What do you think huh?
Back to that gorgeous Mist, the only buggar being now I've tasted it I want all the colours - 50 of 'em. Every single one!
