Pretty Serendipity Paper

This bright new 'Sunshine Lollipop' line from Serendipity lent a much needed bit of irony to a layout about running a race in the snow. I am a card-carrying fan of the cool scalloped edges that Bazzil puts out and think they just make any page even more fun. I made the circle embellishments using punches and metal-rimmed tags all covered in a thick coat of Diamond Glaze. They take a while to dry (I let these go overnight) but I think the effect is worth it.

The leftover scraps made a cute little tag that could be used as a page embellishment, on a card or used as a gift tag. It's easy for me to just toss all my paper bits and scraps in a plastic bin and forget about them, but there really is so much more I could do with it all. I need to remember to make cards and tags and mini-books. Scrapbooking isn't just about 12x12 layouts, right?

I love the layout...but really can't wait to use my "scraps" to make some page accents/tags! Great work!
