Just beautiful me - practical scrappers contest

Last week I saw that Practical Scrappers have a layout contest. If you read my blog for a while you should already know that I am a big fan of scrapbooking challenges. You may not know that I LOVE scrapbooking contests. I only participated in few but I really enjoyed them. It is fun to discover a competitive side of me :)

To enter the contest I only had to send a favorite layout. And I did. My layout passed the initial round and was selected as one of the 70 to participate in the first round. Today is the day. If you like my layout and want me to move to the next round you can vote here. You can vote for as many layouts as you like. Only 25 from 70 will advance to the next round. Will I make it?? We will know on Saturday.

Few words about the layout. I actually made it few weeks ago for the challenge on Scrapbook Express blog. The challenge was to use song lyrics for the title. I asked Lila to help, she checked her ipod and came up with this - "I'm no beauty queen I'm just beautiful me" from "Who Says" by Selena Gomez. I though it is perfect and I liked that it came from her. That's how my big girl looked 10 years ago.

Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts), patterned paper, diecuts (My Mind's Eye), label stickers (My Mind's Eye), chipboard buttons (Jenni Bowlin), letter stickers (Basic Grey), heart punch (Fiskars), stencil (Crafter's Workshop), sparkle texture medium (Martha Stewart), twine, acrylic paint

I used different bits and pieces from My Mind's Eye papers. To add more dimension to the layout  mixed acrylic paint with Martha Stewart sparkle texture medium and used stencil to apply it to the background.  I finished the layout with Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons, some twine and small punched heart.
