Shop Til You Drop!

his layout was fun for me because I don't often get the chance to scrapbook with flowers and glitter!  My sisters live out of town, but my younger sister came to visit over Thanksgiving and we hit the stores on Black Friday.  One of our stops was Michael's where I purchased the Paisley Cricut cartridge and when I saw the title 'Shop Til You Drop' in the handbook, I knew I had to do this page!  We had quite an escapade that evening - one of those nights where if I told you all the things that went on you wouldn't believe me!  The shopping bag was cut from Doodlecharms and it is raised up with foam tape so I can type up my journaling of the stories from that night and tuck it in the bag. I thought this turned out rather Vera Bradley-ish, don't you think??
I had a hard time getting the color right on the photo and the page was too lumpy-bumpy to scan.  Here is a close-up of the stickled title.  I offset the blackout cut just a bit to add some depth.  The shimmer brads I used were white which made them stand out more than I wanted, so I used a light pink Copic marker to tone them down to a subtle pink hue.
The paper is from K& Co which I got for a steal at Tuesday Morning.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
