Scrap-Mart/The Button Farm Club: Lunch Layout

Hello! This is a continuation of my projects that I am creating from my monthly kit I received from The Button Farm Club. My first project was a Card Folder and Cards Ensemble using just a few sheets of 12 x 12" patterned papers. I took some of those scraps and created a 12 x 12" layout with some additional embellishments that Scrap-Mart has available for purchase to come up with this (click for a closer look)...

Lunch At Chef Ping's by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers: Crate Papers (Farmhouse Collection); Ink: Clearsnap; Marker: EK Success/KURETAKE (Zig Writer); Mist: Tattered Angels (DragonFly); Bling: Want2Scrap and KaiserCrafts; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (E8-003 Classic Triple Scallop, S4-301 Labels Sixteen; NEW S5-083 Antique Frames and Accents, NEW S5-086 Bitty Blossoms), Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever)

I first decided that I wanted to use different patterned papers from this collection but didn't want to crowd it with all sorts of embellishments - keep it simple. I cut/embossed S4-301 Labels Sixteen eight times and inked the edges (later I inked the edges of the 12 x 12" patterned paper too).

After I adhered the squares to the page, I wanted to add some color to the white background so I misted DragonFly Glimmer Mist in three different areas.

Placed all the elements as shown and it's done! This page was from a summer lunch in Schaumburg (IL) when my mom was visiting from Japan. We invited my mom to spend a month with us - lucky to have the time to spend with her....good for the grandkids too!

Great layout. I'm so scared to use mists even though they look so easy to use. I love how you used it on this layout.
