FDFF 'Scallops' Challenge + Purple Pumpkin March Sketch

Good day everyone! I'm here today to share the project I created for the Fabulous Friday Challenge over at Frosted Designs! Our challenge this time was to create any layout, mini album or project using scallops!! I happen to LOVE scallops, I even have some scallop scissors and a scallop circle punch, so this was pretty easy for me! I have also used the March Sketch over at Purple Pumpkin for my layout. All you have to do to participate is link up your project at the FD blog no later than  April 12th and you'll be entered to win a fabulous prize from SpeigelMom's Scrap Shop on Etsy.

Here is a look at the great sketch I used from PP:

And here is what I came up with!!!

I started the base of my layout by layering some papers that I inked, distressed, spritzed and sprayed. I also had a few scallop circles that I knew I wanted to use so I placed those around my page until I was happy with the placement. Then I started adding my textural elements. There are lots of PP goodies and other stuff from my stash on this page!

 And a couple of close ups:
I thought I was just about done then I realized that I hadn't put anything in place of the 'banner' at the bottom of the page on the sketch, so I used a scallop banner mini stamp from Studio G and made a inky banner across the bottom of the page.
 This one is my fav!!! Maybe my new cover photo on facebook... LOL

 I also thought that one of my PP buttons, the hot pink spotty dotty one was a little too 'clean and bright' for this grungy-girly layout. So I decided to mess it up with 2 colors of stickles and a bit of black ink, then put in on top of 2 prima flowers as the center.

You still have plenty of time to play along! Don't forget to ink up your project by April 11th to the Frosted Designs blog for your chance to win! Thanks so much again for stopping by today :) Until next time, Peace Y'all~VV
