Another Kit Layout and Calling MothTalk!

Dropping a brush full of gesso on my layout set me back in the Great Scrapbook Race.  I'm already "TheSlowestScrapperThisSideOfTheMississippi".  So stuff like this doesn't help!

But the good thing about mistakes in scrapbooking is that there really aren't any mistakes.  And when you're working with a Mercantile kit with gorgeous patterned paper, it's easy to cover up a splat. Can you tell where it is?

See that pose?  That little guy can still turn on the cuteness - even at almost 18.  Everything is from the main Mercantile kit except for the metal star from the add-on and the seam binding and tiny pearls from my stash.

Love the little chipboard pieces in the kit:

The Doodlebug Jewels are such an awesome color.  The mist is Jenni Bowlin for Ranger Brown Sugar.

My seam binding looked a little too stark to me so I took my Brown Sugar ink pad and a Tim Holtz stamp and stamped on the seam binding:

I actually used all three Brown Sugar products on this layout.  The Dabber on the chipboard, ink pad on the seam binding, and dye ink mister on the background. Such a great color.

And MOTHTALK!  You won a gift certificate to JBS Mercantile!  Email me and we'll get it out to you!

Oh the splat?!  It's right here:

Have a great day!
