My Goofball!

My daughter has so much personality and is so full of life. I call her a "Goofball" quite frequently because she can be so fun and goofy. I recently printed a small stack of pictures of her posing and being silly, so I have selected a few that I will be scrapping over the next few weeks.

This layout is a stretch for me for many reasons:
First - I don't like pink. I'm not saying I don't care for pink, I'm saying I don't. like. pink. period.
Second - I made a girly page. I'm generally not a girly type of person, so this is definitely not my normal style.
Third - I combined many different layers and techniques.

I used the Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Ribbon Loop punchfor a border on the pink paper. The title is cut from the Cuttin Up cartridge, although the heart comes from the Doodlecharms cartridge.
The scalloped circle is from the Mini Monograms cartridge. Prima flowers (discontinued) with colored skittle centers and stickled petals.

This closeup shows some of the rhinestones I used. They were a halloween clearance item a Michaels that I got for about 25 cents. I also used Hot Fix rhinestones on the humps of the scallop for additional bling.

I wanted a little dimension on the page to make the page flow visually so I used popdots to raise up the heart, "G", "F", and "A" and shifted some of the flowers for height variations.

This is a closeup of the heart. I layered three hearts of paper and topped them with an embossed heart from the plastic cut from the clamshells in which the Cricut cartridges are packed. I believe this is the Cuttlebug embossing folder "Swiss Dots".

This will also be entered into a Cricut Circle Blog Challenge for this week which require a Love Note, embossing, heart, and 2+ Cricut cuts.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed!
