Hi, Nicky here, with my debut post!

I was lucky enough to receive some of the Abbey Road Round & Round collection from My Minds Eye, just perfect for scrapping my boys and their antics on wheels. This is my youngest enjoying his scooter:

I wanted to emphasise the cirlces theme, and decided to do some stamping with bubble wrap - but this time using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, which I haven't tried before. It was very straightforward, I used an old pizza box to spray in (we've all got those from stash deliveries!)and just spritzed a few sprays onto a small piece of bubble wrap:

I then gently pressed the bubble wrap onto my chosen part of the background cardstock (using some scrap paper underneath to protect my workspace):

After peeling away carefully, I did the same in the other corner, and also sprayed directly onto the cardstock:

After allowing to dry, I completed my LO. I used some of the Round & Round diecuts (here & here), some ric-rac ribbbon and American Crafts Thickers for the title. Keeping with the circles theme, I again used the Glimmer Mist to spray some chipboard circles:

I added some of the little die-cuts, and finished off with Kaiser rhinestones.

I shall definitely be experimenting further with the Glimmer Mists, they're fun!
