Frost Painting

Gasp! Gasp! Gasp!

I did a layout and that too by tearing out paper from a stack which I did not have any duplicate of and on the top of it I used my designer brads. What was I thinking.  I wish I could have gone shopping before doing this (but nope no shopping for me for a while) as I wanted darker chocolate brown cardstock as that would have made the layout pop. But anyways!
I should thank Beatrice at Amazing Grace for helping me out as she asked me to get a birthday layout and told me to cut a cake die cut about 5 inches and start gathering the layout materials.
And another thanks to Allison and Caroline - my dear dear friends at Papercrafting weekend for making me use my stuff (even if I grumble and groan while doing so :) )
I have decided I am an organic scrapbooker. I don't follow sketches and just go with the flow. I know they don't turn out great but do I have fun :)! That's my story and I am sticking to it ;)
So here is my ( I think about my 10th or 11th layout). The photos are old ones taken way back. The camera used is an old  point and shoot. This was actually during my 2nd son's 1st birthday about 8 years back but instead of the kids playing lol you see here my hubby and my sister in law playing with cake frost. So I decided to have sober background but fun colorful die cuts - maybe to portray adults having fun lol.
I have used cake doily. The pattern paper is from sweet stack DCWV and the background brown paper is Kraft paper from recollections. I wish I had a darker chocolate colored paper. Yeah! I have even used my sewing machine. The die cuts are cut from silhouette. The border - white is from pattern paper itself which I cut using scissors to be able to stagger and  the rest 2 are using Martha Stewart punch.  Other embellishments used are stickles, brad (sigh!), viva decor pen, pearls , some brown ink and some twine
