Sparkly Things Distract Me Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Sparkly Things Distract Me Blog Hop" hosted by Janice Anello @ Cricut Confessions. If you just came from Jaimies Blog: Glitter, Stamps and Paper, Oh My, then you are on the right track. If you have just popped in for a visit and want to join this hop from the beginning please start with Cricut Confessions.
For my sparkly project, I decided to do the following scrapbook layout. I loved how the black helped my glitter and glitz pop.

Layout Recipe:
DCWV black cardstock
Sheet Music paper printed from a free digi from Far Far Hill
45 Record svg freebie from SVGCuts (My 9 year old asked me what this was..ha ha)
The Father-Daughter Dance elements are Jolees.
The music notes aroud the photo were an .svg created by me specifically for this layout, inked in silver.
I stitched the decorative ribbon on with my Pixie Plus
I attached the star beading on with a dab of diamond glaze.
Added some stickles on almost everything!! Gotta have some sparkle...right?!

What a beautiful LO Patti! Love the picture of your hubby and daughter...what a wonderful treasure.

Your daughter's daughter will be asking her the same thing 20 years from now when she's adding a CD to her LO! lol

Patti, your layout is gorgeous! What a keepsake! I had to laugh about the 45--I was talking about having a bunch of 45s in front of my son. He asked, in all seriousness, whether grandma knew I had guns in my room! You know I'm a follower--karelj at and/or ksjennings at gmail dot com
