Sarah cracks me up- another Nook February kit layout

I've been working away with my February Nook kit and have a few new layouts to show you but for now I'll stick to this one. I loved the black floral paper in this kit, loved its shape and so for this page I cut around the paper leaving just the frame that I used here- you'll see the rest of the paper used on another layout I'm working on, don't you worry.

For this page I wanted to showcase some of the beautiful rub-ons in the kit so I didn't use many other things except for the Woolies that go with this collection, some pearls from my stash and a bit of ink and faux stitching. I LOVED the black grid background to make these pictures POP! and decided to do my journaling straight on the paper, only it took 4-5 times over with my white gel pen for the writing to really show up the way I wanted it to. If anyone knows of a REALLY good white gel pen that does a great job on dark papers, let me know.

So, without further ado, here are the pics of my page. In these pics Sarah was making faces at herself in our bathroom mirror. Yes, it really is green, but it doesn't look too bad in real life. Here the walls seem to be glowing.

I hope you're having a great week so far. Come back tomorrow for another new page!
