Paper Popsicles...round 2!

Let me preface my post by saying, I RARELY scrapbook. So when we were asked if we would like to participate in a Paper Popsicles swap using scrapbooking supplies, a resounding YES could be heard through my computer! I'm always up for a challenge! Never mind the fact that it took me hours to put something together, LOL. So here goes....bear with me folks. If it's absolutely horrid to you, I blame my lack of practice in scrapbooking! :)

Now, I absolutely loved this page! I can't begin to gush on and on about what fabulous products they supplied us with. I believe that the patterned paper was from SEI, but I can't recall the name. :) I incorporated the Shimmerz onto my page by doing one of my favorite techniques. I inked up my flower stamp with Versamark and then spritzed with Baby's Breath and then stamped. You end up with a beautiful Shimmerfied stamped image! Here's a closeup :)

After that, I tried my hand at another layout.

Isn't that paper just gorgeous?! They were Pebbles paper. On this one, I used Green Olive Shimmerz on the large flower and December Sky Blingz on the smaller one. You can actually see the Shimmerz pretty well on the flowers, but here is a closeup for clarity. :)

I thank you for looking and for sharing one of (I hope many more) scrapbook layouts I can complete in this lifetime, LOL!
