Static Curls

This layout I started with a white cardstock base, which is NOT normal for me. But thanks to glimmer mist and needing to make my own background paper, I have been doing it more and more.

I used Lemon Meringue, Candy Apple Red and Raven Glimmer mist to spray from the bottom corners. I used the "Center of Attention" Masks that we sold this last retreat for the title. They are reusable and so perfect for paint, ink, and of course glimmer mist.

I love how the glimmer really shows up in this picture.

(My brother has a thing about me posting pictures of my nephew so I had to fuzz his face. Even though you would never recognize him now, I still respect his wishes)

Wood Flourishes, Glimmer Mist and Stickles

This is a Wood Flourish made by Kaisercraft. (love them) They are just as thick as chipboard but sturdier because it is wood. Anyway, this is one shape out of the set. I sprayed it with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist. It soaks up the GM so well.
Then I used Candy Candy and Platinum Stickles for the ornaments on the tree. Goldenrod stickles is on the star.
The layout I made this for is not finished, but I wanted to share this embellishment with you. It sparkles so, so much. I wish the picture would show you the sparkle as well as it is in real life. Oh well, you will have to come to the Spring retreat to see it in person. :)

As in the past, all REGISTRATIONS FULLY PAID by Monday, February 15, 2010, will receive an extra two-page layout kit at the Retreat.
We also offer several payment options: PayPal buttons on the blog; snail mail (Croppin' Train Scrapbook Retreat - C/O Dora Poage - P.O. Box 982 - Bentonville, AR 72712-0982); or call (479-464-7206) with credit card information. We also have GIFT CERTIFICATES available, if someone needs any Valentine ideas.
We look forward to seeing many of you in March, and, if you're not able to make the March retreat, mark your calendar now for the Fall Retreat - November 12-14, 2010!
