'Everything is Better' Layout - Scrap Around The World - 7 Dots - 13 Arts - Lindy's Stamp Gang - Prima

Back with all the closies on my Scrap Around The World
 layout.  Such a beautiful mood board from Zanka! 

I wanted to show that you don't necessarily have to have that 
particularly 'romantic' style in order to take part in our
 challenge this month, so I choose these funny photos 
of my husband  photobombing my daughter's photo
 & another one of the whole lot of them playing the fool!  

I did take a lot of photos on our outing to Port
 Pendennis in Falmouth {UK} & I guess this is
 the proof that my family were over it eventually!!

I used the wonderful 'Messy Head' papers from 7 Dots Studio,
designed by one of my favourite scrappers de jour - Olga Heldwein.

I used mists from Lindy's Stamp Gang - Starbursts 
Spray in Cocklebells Coral, Shabby Turbine Teal
 & Frostbitten Fuschia, with a 12" Prima mask.

Sentiments & alpha stickers come from 
7 Dots, flowers & sugar dots from Prima.

The doily shape you see above - used at the top & bottom 
of the layout - was created by using 13arts modeling paste
through a Christy Tomlinson doily stencil - then sprinkling 
with Ayeeda 3D powder {glass filler}, then misting them.  
Once dry I cut the doily shape out & split it into two.

I used my Martha Stewart heart punch to punch out some 
pre-misted paper that I attached down the side of my layout.  

I used the sketch this month, as from January we are doing
 away with them.  I hope some of you will get the chance
 to participate this month - as usual we have some incredible 
prizes, & 7 Dots Studio is our main sponsor this month!!
