Silver and sequins and feathers

What a combination. 
Always fun on a date, a go-go dancer or a scrapbook page.
This page was so much fun to do and I really tried not to over think it.
Which, for me, is tough to do.
It started with the silver doily - mostly because I wanted to use it.
And you can't have silver without more bling going on.
I actually misted first and the sequins were a last minute touch
letting them drop where they may and quickly gluing them done.
One.at.a.time.
The vellum envelop had been floating around for awhile and with some journaling
I thought it would be perfect for the page.
I can remember when vellum envelops were as popular as
the word strips for titles that I referenced in Going back old school.
Its fun to see some of the "old" stuff make a come back.
For the title I took my cue from the bows next to Anniegirl.
Annie loves Minnie. Annie makes an adorable Minnie.
And how fun is that?
I hunted down that heart in my grungeboard stack and added some
liquid pearl. Both items were from stash older than dirt so I'm
really impressed with myself that stuff like that is finally getting used.
The blingy pink thickers is in that stash too.
Why I hoard that stuff - I don't know.
Raise your hand if you do the same.
I know I'm not alone!!!
On a side note :
I think I used to puchase stuff like that because everyone else did and then I had no idea
what to do with it. This was also back in the day when anything new
came out I jumped all over it. Mostly because I worked at a SB shop and tried
to keep up with all the new stuff in case customer's had questions.
 I'm a lot pickier on what I purchase now, learning a lot
from those I follow in using my purchasing power more wisely and not
having a lot of stuff laying around unused.
Although....just sayin'....
My stash is like a bowl of spaghetti - it just keeps growing no matter how
much I use. I'm thinking another purge is in order.
AND
 I am almost done with my August SC KIT which is soooo cool.

WOW!
