Sparkle Smile

Good morning everyone,
Today I want to share my layout that I finished,and I want to enter at  Lasting Memories for their challenge #153"How You've Grown" Well  i've grown so much matured this time, back then I was happy if I made one layout that 123, so simple and no embellishment included just picture and basic papers and you're done! you know what i'm talking about right? lol.But Now OMG! sometime takes me 30 minutes  to 1  hour  just to finished one layout,full of cool embellishments that I dont have before! anyway here is my example back 2009 >Then .........
and Now....
and  I want to enter this layout also at  Red Carpet Studio challenge #50"Mystic River" using a misting technique. I use my Mini Gears Stencil,and  misting with my heidi swapp color shine blue.Then over at  Use Your Stuff for their challenge #98 "Circle Galore" I punch some circle with design already and I added some circle bling on the top of my circle.
And I want to share this also at  About A Boy for their "August 15 Anything Goes"
Then and Now
Thanks for Stopping by:
Have a Good Day!
