Milestones and a Hollywood Layout

Hello my crafty friends, I just wanted to share that this blog post is my 100th post.  I never imagined that I would have enjoyed sharing my creations and participating in challenges as much as I have over the past 11 months.  Not only is this a milestone post but I also just hit 400 followers on my blog.  I would like to celebrate these milestones by having a giveaway for my followers for my blogaversary next month. Please check back in May for details and thank you so much for supporting my blog.
Hollywood Layout
This 12x12 layout was created to scrapbook some pictures from our family trip to Hollywood last year. I created this layout for a couple of challenges in mind, however, one challenge specifically called for bright colors that you may not typically use.  The bright colors give the look and feel of Hollywood which work great with the pictures of the bright lights in Hollywood.
I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for all of the die cuts.  The title was cut out twice in order to create a shadow by off setting the layers just a little. The title was symmetrically placed between the two pages.
This fun skyline was also cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  I used this die cut as a border for each of the pages.
Some stars were added to the layout to give the feel of the Hollywood glitz and glamour. The stars were accented with my white gel pen and embellished with some bows made from Sky Trendy Twine.
All of the die cuts were popped up on foam for added dimension, accented with my with gel pen and with some inking around the edges of some of the die cuts.
