Seeing Double! - Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop October 19

Welcome to this months hop - the Theme this month is Seeing Double - how would you interpret this one? With 15 people joining us on the hop I am sure you will see more than one interpretation of our theme. 

Double layouts use to be my favourite - I could add a heap of photos rather than one or 2 and tell more of the story which is really what it's all about. I think it changed because of time constraints more than anything else so knowing that Delys loves double pages I decided a double page it needed to be.

So my middle child turned 16 earlier this year and we had the besties over for a sleep over - they watched movies ate popcorn and pizza and in general loved helping her celebrate. 
I have used the 'Well Written Dies' for the script that I added tone on tone to give the plain vanilla card stock some texture, the Praiseworthy Prose stamp set for the sentiments and my chipboard snitches are embossed with gold embossing powder. They actually have a couple of layers of embossing powder heated onto them but to get that dark tarnished look I actually used a old pack. New embossing powder was way to bright for my liking and yes I will admit I have deliberately kept some older powder especially for its aged colour difference. I have a white container that's aged to vanilla colour for the same reason.

I do love this effect with the tone on tone words for texture.

Thanks for popping in - sorry there's no video this time I did like making the last one so will do another when I have the right page for it. Now its time to visit Eimear
