First Shimmerz Project

I am in love...I mean really in love!!!! I received my package of shimmerz paints and they are FAB-U-LOUS!! I used Blingz- Pixie Dust on this LO and man...oooo, just wait until you see the close up, it has rocketed to the top of my list of favorite products!!

Are Graphic 45 papers phenomenal or what? I swear they bring out the best in me!! I pulled a lot of metal embellishments (zipper, brads, book plate, pins) to use on this LO thanks to a challenge over at Scrapper's Block...yeah, I think this may be my new fave layout!! (ETA: created using a pagemap)

journaling: (9 years ago)

I was 25 years old and 40 pounds lighter

Troy and I had lived together for almost 2 years (Stuyvesant Village in Union)

It was Mother's Day; I was on my was to Veronica and Anthony's wedding

I had been at my job for 1 year

The world was getting over that whole Y2K thing

I had no idea that I would become a mother of 2 boys that I love more than anything

I was working on my Master's degree (never finished though)

Troy and I travelled to Cancun, Mexico in August

We were engaged November 5th

**Disclaimer** the amount of sparkle on this close-up may cause eye injury, I am not responsible for any damages! HAHAHAHA!!

Just look how the Blingz shine here. I do a little happy dance every time I see it!

Here, I added it to one of the clocks that I pop dotted for a little visual interest.

I layered a bunch of my current favorite products here.

The entire layout is mounted on cardboard that I painted black and lime green. Paper tearing and curling add dimension to the bottom of the layout, and the journaling was printed on adhesive transparency then cut into strips so it didn't overwhelm the design.

Head on over to Shimmerz's Blog to take a look at all of the different colors of Shimmerz and Blingz currently available!! One look and you'll be hooked!
That's all for now.
