Sparkle - My first post as a Glitter Girl :o)

Hi everyone,  today is my first post as part of the Glitter Team for Sparkle n Sprinkle!
 I want to share a layout I made using my fabulous Embossing Powders and Glitters from SNS.
I am all about the sparkle! The more the merrier in my opinion.

I always start my layouts by choosing my photos. In this case I had a black and white photo of The Hubs and DD2 from her Debutante Ball. Of course I needed some beautiful color in the rest of my layout to make the black and white stand out.
Here is a look at my layout,,,
I love these papers and I thought they were perfect for this layout. My daughter is quite the girly girl and these papers are just like her! I used lots of fussy cutting, layers, glitter and flowers to accent.
For my background on the white doily I used several colors of Faber-Castell® Gelatos®, applied
then directly to the paper then blended with water. I also used a stencil and modeling
paste, then colored the textured part with Gelatos®
To get this look I fussy cut the flower spray from patterned paper, then used my Quickie Glue Pen and Cyclamen Glitter to add the accents and depth. On the edge of the punched border I used the same technique and Spring Willow Glitter for a little extra color.
I used the same technique here to add my glitter.
For my title I used a chippie from Fab Scraps. I covered it first with Mediterranean Embossing Powder and then I used my Quickie Glue Pen and Priceless Peacock Glitter on the stars.
To accent the corners of my photo I used more chippies from Fab Scraps and Black Embossing powder. To finish off my layout I added some bling, some pearls, some flowers and some sewing. I uses White StazOn 
for the stamping on my photo to really make it stand out.

This was the most magical time for my DD2 - she has waited years for her turn to be a Debutante-
it's a huge southern thing, we are all about big dresses and parties!
Girls actually have a "Deb Year" and ours lasted 15 months! I ended up making
4 scrapbooks to cover everything.
