A New Color Combination! CCG #174 and Moxie Fab Stamp of Approval!

Plum!  I only had one sheet of paper that matched the color combination this week by Bo Bunny.  A beautiful plum glitter paper.  The rest of the plum is PAINT (Sugar Plum) by SHIMMERZ.

And here is my take:

This is my little sister and me, and about 4 years ago.  Do you think we look alike?  We have the same Father.  I never really thought we looked alike until people started commenting in the past couple months.  I think we have similar noses and smiles.

I forgot to mention in my post another love of mine.  It is the DISTREZZ-IT-ALL from Zutter.  If you love the look of torn edges, this toll just does all the work for you!  I bought it for myself for Christmas and I love love love it.

Back to the layout at hand!  I bought so many odds and ends buttons from a re-use center here in Burlington and for a while, they've been sitting.  So I pulled them out, hot glued them to the paper (Glue Arts Glue Gun), and coated them with GESSO paint.  Then I went crazy with Plum Pudding Shimmerz Spritz and Sugar Plum Shimmerz Paint.

The challenge this week at Color Combos Galore was to use butterflies somewhere on our layout.  I chose to stamp little ones here and there to match a Unity Stamp Co. quote that I have (go in the directions....).  Other Unity stamps include the SHE quote and She Sprouted Wings.

The clock stamp is 7 Gypsies, and the butterfly stamps and saying are Cornish Heritage Farms.
