Also, I just wanted to let everyone know that my Summer Sparkle kit is available at Scrapbook Mania. I think she may only have a couple extras but give them a call to find out... 205-424-4246. I was able to create a cute little acrylic mini-album with the kit. It includes Cloud 9 products, velvet ric-rac, paint, Stickles, and some other fun goodies.
I enjoyed creating the sparkly frame you see in the close up. I painted it first with the acrylic paint included in the kit. (The chipboard frames are part of it, too.) After drying, I put some Stickles on it and smeared it with my finger for even coverage and that was it. Very cute.
On a side note, I am happy to say I survived a 3000-mile trip from Alabama through Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, and Georgia for a fun visit with some family. The drive was so worth it. I had almost perfect driving weather and gosh, there's nothing like hanging out with people you love. Especially when you only get to see them every couple of years.
Have a great weekend everyone! I can't believe summer is about half over. Wow.
