Sunday Best Scrapbook Page by Janelle Burba

This month I wanted to use my glitter on a scrapbook layout. Since I spend more time on my pages than most, I thought it would be fun to see how I might dress one up a bit with glitter. As I commonly do, I used a photograph for my inspiration for this page. Lately, I have been busy looking through old family pictures and heritage layouts are so important. I love remembering those people, past and present that I love so much. I found an old Easter picture of my mother and sister and since it is spring, I needed to do something special with it.

I began with the Vintage Whimsy Collection by Crate Paper and went from there. I really enjoyed working with the muted pink and blues against the chocolate brown cardstock. I must say these colors are quickly becoming my favorites. After the papers were in place and the photo glued, I added prima flowers and trinkets, some random metal pieces and large letters from Heidi Swap. Tim Holtz helped with the bird cage die cut. I used a cool technique on it to make it look aged. I used several types of glitter in many different colors(see supplies) and some misc. beading. I hope you enjoy it.
