The Star of the Star Wars Party

The logical part of my brain knows that Halloween is over for the year.  But the creative part of my brain just wants to keep on making more Halloween-type layouts.  I'm giving in to the creative part of my brain on this one.  :)

Supplies: cardstock by American Crafts; patterned papers, die cuts, & mini alphabet stickers by Lily Bee Design; ribbon & large alphabet stickers by October Afternoon; ink by Clearsnap; pen by Zig; paint by Ranger.

This layout is called "Stormtroopers Are Cool," and the photos on it are from a Star Wars masquerade party that my son and I attended last year.  Check out the stormtrooper--isn't his costume great!  He was kind enough to pose for a photo.

I used a lot of Lily Bee products on this layout.  The papers are all from the new "Persnickety" line, and the die cuts are from a mix of lines from early 2012.  I love how the chevron papers from "Persnickety" make great journaling surfaces.  My journaling reads: "At first A. was most interested in R2D2, but then he buddied up with a stormtrooper.  A. even made a finger puppet of his new buddy."  If you look carefully at the photos, you can see the little finger puppet.

I had fun mixing and matching October Afternoon "Woodland Park" and "Sasparilla" alphabet stickers to spell "Stormtroopers."

I layered some die cuts and ribbon with adhesive foam to make a medallion-like embellishment.

I'm very much in love with Ranger's Liquid Pearls paints.  They have been showing up on almost all my layouts recently--have you noticed?  :)  Here I used them sparingly to embellish the white space around the die cut stars on my layout.

That's it for today--just a quickie post while I have a bit of spare time.  Hope you have a nice weekend!  I'll be around to visit everyone's blogs when I have a longer stretch of time on Saturday and/or Sunday.
