Go Wild NSD Layout!

Hello! Have you been having a wonderful National Scrapbooking 'weekend'?!! The day really has turned into a weekend for me and I've been sneaking in as much scrappin' as I can! I'm on the SpiegelMom Scraps Instagram today with a challenge that I'm hosting - Cluster It! Basically, I want to see a cluster on your layout - so get out those papers and embellies and start clustering!

For this challenge I've created this fun layout of my daughter's Funny Hair Day at Preschool. Her bucket of toy plastic dinos is one of her favourite toys to play with and she was so excited when her older sister suggested clipping them into her hair this day. Most of them were even still in when it was time to come home, lol! There were some pretty cool hairdo's that day, but I think hers was the best ;)

I used the May sketch from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine as a starting point with this layout, and grabbed some Wild Whisper stamps, SpiegelMom Scraps cork, sequins, twine and felt, papers and diecuts and started layering!

I cut out a cool camera from the Wild Whisper Focus On You paper and clustered it with some Raspberry Burlap String and a wood veneer embellishment. I also added sequins above and below my cluster.

I layered some circle and heart diecuts along with some clouds and arrows from the FREE You Are My Sunshine cutfile on the SMS blog.

These cute dinos from the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge were cut from the Wild Whisper papers. I absolutely love the heavy weight of this cardstock and it diecuts beautifully! More sequins and a little Cork Star add another cluster around my photo, while a fussy cut camera, twine and sequins cluster around my journaling.

Here's a look at all the fun sequins I used on my layout! You can find them in the SpiegelMom Scraps shop HERE.
