Scrapbook Wednesday-Too Cute to Spook

Well, hello! I am so glad you stopped in to visit today!  While the rest of my family was glued to the TV on Sunday, I was busy working on scrapbook pages.  I would tune in to watch the commercials and then went back to work when the game started again.  I have to say the power outage was a little interesting though!

My page for today, I am sad to say holds pictures from over 3 years ago... It's always a little bittersweet doing these pages and seeing how little my girls were only a few short years ago!  I did have a little bit of fun with this page.  Now on the surface this doesn't really look like anything too exciting or taxing...

 But take a look at this little beauty...

I finally used my Michael's gift card from my birthday and one of the things that I bought was some Tim Holtz distress crackle paint.  I started with a little cardstock Halloween image from my stash and painted a thin layer over it.  When it dried, I wasn't quite happy with the effect, so I painted another layer on top of it.  When that was dried, I sponged a little crumb cake ink over the image and then put some 'green glue' (the glue in the green bottle...) around the edges.  Then I pulled out my silver glass glitter that I had yet to use (GASP!) and rolled the edges of the image in the glitter.  I really like the way this turned out.  It was a lot of fun trying something new and I also squeezed in a trip down memory lane, as well!  There's also quite a bit of 'stash' on this which always makes me happy!

I hope you enjoyed my little experiment and that you find some time this week to do a little experimenting of your own!
