The curved title was backed with a sweep of paint. I love using paint on my layouts as it is so versatille. I even painted the title letters and coated them in glitter.
The 'smile' and journalling block are rub ons. I wrote about our crackers as it is a Jones family tradition that we get really classy crackers and all look forward to the little gifts inside.
I really love it! I tried to make it mirror a cracker being pulled. The sequins and buttons represent all of the goodies inside! The only concept which caused problems was the stitching as I am having a few technical difficulties with my sewing machine, so I drew the stitching on - is that cheating? Or do I get extra credit for being resourceful??! I noticed Frances who set the challenge is a teacher like me - the two seem to go well together. I bet she loves doing displays too its like a life size scrapbook page!
Keep coming with the challenges as it pushes me to try a little harder and use up some of my "special" stash! x
