QQ Challenge - White Space

Hi all! Hope everyone is having a good week this far. I am feeling a little better but you wouldn't know it by the way it sounds. I completely lost my voice overnight :( All the congestion moved from my head to my chest. Vicks for me tonight :)

Over at the Quick Quotes blog they are hosting Friday Challenges. This week for the holiday they gave us 2 weeks which is awesome since it normally takes me a week to think up of something to work in a challenge! This weeks challenge was "White Space" and I have to say I LOVE the way my page turned out!!! I also have a confession. This is the first page I have scrapped for myself in over 3 years! I tend to scrap for gifts and my classes and never make time for myself. My boyfriend points this out all the time. I keep buying things and he keeps asking me where the scrapbook from our Florida trip is. (We went in August 2010). So I'm a couple (4) years behind! So it is time to get motivated!

I used an Adirondack paint dauber in snow cap on the white paper in the area I wanted to glimmer mist and let dry. I glimmer misted using a brick mask in fully purple then took a paper towel and rubbed over the areas were the paint was to make it a lighter purple and give it a distressed look. I layers a couple pieces of Tim Holtz tissue tape right below my picture. I cut out 3 butterflies, the saying (both from Sentinmentals) and the strip to go behind my picture out of Quick Quotes Julie Je t'aime paper line which is one of my favorites! I inked the edges  of the cuts and the side of my white 12x12 with Quick Quotes Powder Puff ink in Purple Passion. Their ink really is the best to work with. I added the phrase and glitter dragonflies from Quick Quotes chipboard. I felt like my page needed some more bling so I pulled out the new American Crafts glitter ribbon that I bought at the Mini Meet in Toledo last week. I love it! It doesn't flake off like I thought it might. I took a white flower and used the same glimmer mist to make it match. Folded it in half and glued it behind the picture. It needed a center and I wanted to pull in the teal from the paper so I added this cute swirl clip I had in my stash. Then found 3 buttons and 3 bling brads to match. Whew!

The picture is of my mom and I from the Mega Meet in 2011. We decided to take one class together since we didn't get to see much of each other during the day since I was working at the Quick Quotes booth. We LOVED the class and got someone to take a picture with out half-finished projects. Mom of course has finished hers by now and I haven't touched mine since I got home :( I am adding that to my to do list!

Hope you enjoyed my page and make sure to stop by the Quick Quotes blog to check out the rest of their great inspirations!!

Until next time!
