Engagement Party LO - Mission 2

This LO has been a major headache for me. To start with, I decided to use one of the new Kaisercard cardstocks I purchased yesterday but I didn't notice when I bought it that this one had already warped. Given I then misted the background and put acrylic paint over it it's now VERY warped. It's based on a lovely sketch from but for some reason it just didn't come together for me. :( Anyway, the photos are some more from my engagement party in September 2009. Top photo is with my brother and sister, middle is the cake and bottom two are with my grandparents and Ben's grandma.

This was created for the Biggest Loser Mission 2. The focus of this mission was cardstock. I don't keep too much cardstock. I store it in two pockets of my accordian paper storage folder, ordered by colour gradient and put new purchases away quickly so I didn't need to re-organise it. The second part of the mission was to create a LO using cardstock as the base for your layout using the following sketch by Nati. Since I normally use cardstock as my base I thought this one would be easy.

I also combined the sketch with the latest challenge from Punky Scraps. I've been watching Punky Scraps for quite a while but it seems I've never managed to get around to creating a entry. This is for Challenge 39, which was to pick at least 3 suggestions from the following list by the DT:
Kerry: Since it is the month of fresh and shiny new starts I'll choose something shiny
Cheryl: in the same vein as kerry, since you might wish to turn over a new leaf in the new year, let's have something to do with books
Misty: stenciling or masking
Jolanda: Use some charms
Ashley: have some negative space
Celina: Use silver or gold
Marie: Use Stickles
Kat: bubble wrap
There is a whole heap of shiny things on this LO (title alphas, glimmer mist, star). I used some hand-cut masks for misting the stars in the background, they only show up in the light though since I misted blue-gold on the blue background and it dried lighter than I expected. There is some negative space in the top right of the page. There is gold throughout the LO. I've use red Stickles to highlight the emblishments and finally bubble wrap for the background.
