Sketchabilities Sketch 60 went LIVE yesterday! {Popcorn Snacker Layout}

It's already time for a new sketch over at Sketchabilities 
so click on over & take a look at the Design Team
reveal, shortcut it to your desktop & don't forget to
play along if you get the chance!
I've been going through my old photos, categorizing them all, 
and I came across these sweet ones of Cami many 
years ago - and she is still a "Popcorn Snacker" to this day!

I used printed papers from my 2012 Studio Calico Kits 
along with some Studio Calico "Notions" flowers & 
a darling card of vintage buttons sent to me by Mitra,
a very sweet & kind bloggy friend from the USA.

 Love the rectangular doilies - sent to me by another 
kind-hearted blog friend, Rachael, in Australia - 
yup, these days my layouts are truly international!

 I clear embossed the tag with a Glitz Design stamp 
before misting it with Maya Mist - Pink Lemonade - 
one of my favourite "mists of the moment!"

I intentionally stuck the "Popcorn" letters up & down
like that to mimic popcorn jumping around in the pot!

That ribbon is just from the local haberdashery but
is rather lush if you ask me..

I love the look of using the whole button pack instead 
of just the actual buttons...You can see that in this layout
I have substituted the button-pack for an actual photo as
I only had 2 photos to use, not 3 like the sketch.

 Quite proud of my pretty bow - 
not that easy to tie y'know!

That ornate strip is actually the reverse-side of the 
identification strip on the printed paper.
