I edged this layout with some Tattered Rose Crackled Paint for a fun touch here .
She's our oldest niece in the family .
Journaling reads : "Marysa , it took a lot of slow to grow & now you're 16 ! "

for this layout , I used Glossy Accents on parts of the journaling spots for some highlights .
Here the journaling reads :
"Goodbye to dolls, tea sets and bows,
Hello to makeup, telephones & beaus ! "

Here are our youngest nieces & nephew taking some pics as we were leaving Ben & Jerry's not too long ago.
Alas we forgot to take pictures of the yummy ice cream that we had that day !
Some of the journaling recalls the flavors that we tried :
Around the whirled : Choc Chip Cookie , Cheesecake Brownie , Mint Chocolate , Sweet Cream & cookies ( you get the idea ! LOL ! )
To use the black corugated cardboard a little differently -
I simply cut little bits of them for photo corners .
Lots of glitter & dimension on this layout - lots of cut out whirls to frame the pics & I used 4 different colors of stickles on various embellies . I also cut out some stars from the patterned paper & raised them on pop dots .
The glitter on these aqua Tiara thickers is just sooo yummy ! Love them to bits !
Had a tonne of fun creating these !!!
definitely there are leftovers for at least 3 more projects or more !

Oh my heavens Pearl your LO's are just absolutely GORGEOUS hun! You rock! Good luck! I saw those guidelines and they are so cool. I haven't decided if I'm going to try out or not. I've been burned pretty badly lately with all the DTs I've tried out for and have not gotten. So I'm still think about this.
