Jill Sprott and the Dime Store Kit

Hi all!  It's Jill here, happy to be sharing yet another Dime Store kit creation with you.

I just can't get over the amazing colors in this kit.  The turquoise and vermilion really POP alongside each other, don't they?  This complementary color scheme is a favorite of mine, and this layout is the proof!

In the spirit of all that "pops" deliciously, this layout features a favorite restaurant of ours, Cholo's, which is on the North Shore of Oahu.  The colors in the kit remind me of the flavors we experience there when we indulge in salsa, cheese enchiladas, fried rice, and refried beans.  Yummy!

The page makes use of simple layers -- cards over cards, stickers over stickers, and a banner over a banner.  Since everything in the kit already works perfectly together, the page itself really came together in no time at all!

I added an extra punch to the red chipboard buttons by misting over them.  I just love how the brocade pattern still peeks through.   

I will definitely be going back for a second helping of this kit!
Pin It!
