So I love to play along with the Two Peas in a Bucket Video Challenges - it gives me a little something to get started on a layout and helps me to scrapbook much more quickly. The prompts for this layout came from Shannon Tidwell's 213 in 2013 series, the prompts were:
1. Cut a Design from Patterned Paper: I figured Heidi Swapp did this for me and I used one of her "Banner Delights" from the Sugar Chic line.
2. Go Metallic: Again, I used a Heidi Swapp embellishment (the heart on the lower left) which had gold toned sequins.
3. Tie it with a Bow: While I do have Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic bow on paperclips embellishments - they just seemed too bulky (plus I think I'd rather use them in a mini book) for this page so I tied a bow with baker's twine which seemed perfect for the subject matter of the page - rock candy - which when I was a kid was made at the store where we bought it!
4. Heat It Up With Embossing Powder: Again, I cheated and used Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic paper and embellishments which came with already heat embossed and glittered accents.
This page came together very quickly and I decided to omit a title because it felt done.
Journaling: "Remember: Colorado Chocolate Factory at the Denver Airport and You two wanted rock candy! 1/2013. I remember when I was a little girl and Grandma Grace would bring me and my sister Jenny down to Padanaram Village to feed the ducks and often she'd let us get a treat at the Village Market and I'd either get a Tootsie Pop and look for the Indian (native american) shooting a star on the wrapper (which meant you got an extra pop for free) or a stick of rock candy. - Katie / Mommy - child in the 1970s."
