Sweet 16

Good morning all!  Hope you are having a good weekend.  I just wanted to share a layout I recently completed.  The picture is of me at 16; it's one of the few school pictures that I love; yes love, even with the big 80's hair!

In this layout I used a lot of distressing, ink, silk and paper flowers, brads and bling; but I think my favorite part is the lacing.  I was really intimidated the first time I tried the lacing technique, but now that I've done it a few times it's definately a personal favorite.

 I also love the chipboard bracket.  I started with a plain sheet of chipboard, cut it out on my Cricut, inked with a red ink pad and let it dry.  Then I used some Acrylic gold metallic paint and a stamp and randomly stamped over the ink.  Once that was dry, I sprayed some gold glimmer mist over it and then inked the edges.  I really love how it turned out.
