2 key pick up

Ruby Sky would pick up two maple keys and put them in her bucket. 
I posted this layout in response to the getting glittery challenge from Glitter Girl. I glittered a faux leaf with chunky gold glitter. And then I used pre-glittered Thickers to carry the glitter theme a bit further.

I love the paper I used in the background. It is Pecan Bakery from the Crate Paper Acorn Avenue collection. I think this was the only full-sized sheet I ordered from this collection, and I used it as soon as my order arrived! Love it. Which is unusual because I don't normally use multi-coloured patterns; I prefer monochromatics or a colour+white. I think this paper worked for me because the background grey shade is works as a neutral, even if it does have some purpley undertones. 

I misted a shipping tag with Mr. Huey's Warm Calico and the chevron mask from the December 2012 JBS Mercantile Papercrafting kit.Those adorable little bitty pink woodgrain letter stickers are by Glitz Design! Love them. They are a great size, love the typewriter font, there's nothing cooler than pink woodgrain, and I like that they have a kind of shiny, plasticy finish. 


I sprinkled around some confetti, a few drops of Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in my all-time favourite, must have Gold Lame colour. I added in wooden buttons and gold-rimmed brads from the newest Dear Lizzy collection, 5th and Frolic.
