Believe & Be Yourself

As everyone, I can't believe that December has rolled around again. Christmas shopping is nearly done and the hot weather has arrived albeit a bit belated. The hot weather and I really don't see eye to eye so it gives me time in the air conditioning to scrapbook. The early morning is beautiful in the garden before the hot sun comes over and then I hibernate. My first challenge this month is 123 Challenge Blog which is...Silver, Believe and layers. For the silver I was tempted to go for the good old glitter but then I remembered a technique that I had used quite a time ago. I used some cardstock, applied a thin layer of glue and the smoothed some kitchen foil over this. When it had set I then used a Kaisercraft die, circle vines, to cut a circle to use as a frame on the photo. Then I die cut a few extras to add to the page. To frame the photo I also foil covered some cardstock and used this as the frame and the first of my layers for the photo. Sometimes when you edit your page it is not quite as you would like. But I think it will get the idea across.
