How Much is Too Much Challenge #168

I love the idea of this challenge but it was a bit tricky! . This week's challenge was to "scrap about YOURSELF, specifically, journal about your name--do you like it, hate it, have nicknames, etc.? Anything about your name is fair game! Write down the letters in your name, and use items on your page that begin with each of those letters (could be the generic name of the thing or a brand). For the date, use: 3 - three-word title 28 - items (at least)"

B - Balloon (I made my own hot air balloon stamp using Easy-Carve Rubber by Renoir & was quite pleased with the result!!) oh - -& buttons
E - Embossing - I used Core-dinations embossed cardstock & highlighted the "B"'s  by sanding them & circling with white pen
L- label stickers, the letters "B" highlighted on cardstock & the loops of patterned paper
I - inking of the doilies
N- number - used a Crate Paper brad
D - doilies
A - alcohol ink - I love the splattered look on glossy paper whch I then stamped using solvent ink using my balloon stamp
My 3 word title: "What's Your Name?"
28 items at least: : cardstock,white pen, white mist, 10 buttons, 3 brads, 1piece of ribbon, 3 stamps, 2 colours of alcohol ink, 2 doilies, 1 red ink, journalling block, 4 label stickers, alpha stickers, patterned paper, glimmer glaze (black) to blot out some of the photo background = 34 items!

Thanks for looking!!
