Now, here is my Inspiration Layout for you.  When I saw this color palette - I knew that I had to use the NEW Simple Stories "SO FANCY" Collection again - the colors are "SPOT ON!"

And - here is my take on ALL 4 CHALLENGES!!         I had so much fun making this layout! - Almost as much "FUN" as my Hubby and I had when we went to a convention in Atlantic City, back in 2013.  Let me just say - it was a night to remember (what we can remember of it that is!!) That's us in those photos, and what a "FABULOUS Adventure" it was!
I decided to play around with the background, on the yellow watercolor base page.  I first spread some Pearlescent Embossing Paste with a scrap piece of heavy weight paper, all over the base page. I then took some Tattered Angels - Glimmer Glaze - Pink Lady / Mellow Yellow and applied puddles to a piece of plastic packaging material.  I folded that together, and then pressed the 2 combined colors onto the base page in random spots.  After I dried it with the heat gun, I then did the same with just the Island Spring Glimmer Glaze, randomly pressing it over the layout.  The Teal Glitter textured circles were made with a stencil, and Bo Bunny Caribbean Glitterpaste - this was my first time using it - and I have to say, I think it is going to be quite addicting!
Here you can see how I outlined the sticker letters that came with the Simple Stories Collection. When I saw this 4x6 Card from the Collection, I just knew it had to be my title - and that I had to add the "With You!"  You can also see some of the color that the Glimmer Glaze left on the yellow base. I also splattered some of the Glaze onto the base and the dark blue "drippage" was from dropping drips of the dark blue "Bell Bottom Jeans" Glimmer Mist right onto the base too.

Here you can see some of the pearl shimmer, some of the splatters and more of that YUMMY Glitterpaste! - Oh and piece of pink paper washi tape to the left of the heart sticker too!
More of the pearl shimmer, Glitterpaste, 2 more pieces of washi tape, some more of the background glaze, splatters and drippage in this corner too!

So please stop by one of the 4 BLOGS hosting SCRAPTOBERFEST for lots of inspiration, and play along with us - You have until Oct 31st to Link Up - so GET SCRAPPIN'
