Signs of a Scrapaholic

I love playing along with scrap challenges and a clue I might be addicted? This month's challenge over at Challenge Me Happy involved using sequins. Since I amazingly did not have any in my stash, I went and dug through my ten year old daughter's closet, which just happens to be full of shiny, sparkly, sequiny things! When I found some gloves (yes winter gloves with sequins) that looked like their life was short, I snipped and ta-da! sequins on my layout!
Also included in their challenge recipe was more than one photo, sewing, 2+ patterned papers, washi tape, and an anchor. A varied mix but it worked out nicely for this layout of a ferry trip to downtown.
I also used inspiration from My Scraps & More Sketch Challenge #32...
which worked out well for the Challenge over at It's All About the Boys, using circles. I added buttons to add to the circle effect!
And the color inspiration came from Scrap Much with a color combo that had a very nautical feel to it.
