In Flight With Some Sparkle!

Glitter, Bling, Sparkle... Oh yes, I love it all! In my little world, sparkle is a bit like bacon... everything is just better with it :) Luckily, this week, Simon asked me to play with my bling. I hope you will too. After all, there is a $50 gift card to up for grabs! Head on over to Simon Says Stamp and Show for all the details.

So, what did I do with sparkle this week? Well, I pretty much found every little bit of what I had and stuck it on my layout. Let's see how that came together, shall we?

With my photo at the ready and some gorgeous papers from Basic Grey, I am set...
 Set to scrap!
After my strips of patterned paper are down, I bit of adhesive tape is applied in strips:
 Likey so:
And then, some glitter is smooshed on. Now, I realize that many of you are getting a bit twitchy just looking at this glittery mess... However, I promise it is not too bad! With the adhesive tape grabbing most of it, the rest is just dusted off and it's no biggie...
 See? Pretty!
 A soft bristle paint brush helps get any remaining flecks off of my photo:
 Now, we fussy cut!
 And place it about:
 Coming together...
 Stickle time!
 Squeezed out in glittery little lines:
 A bit of title work:
 And some pen work:
 Oh, and we mustn't forget the sequins!
 Ooooooh, pretty!
 Lots of glittery goodness!
And there we have it...
In Flight! I love how the sparkly page echoes the sparkly light in this sweet photo:
Too much sparkle? Nah, there is no such thing!
