Hi there! I'm so excited to be joining along with the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #2! The challenge is based on the new book by Tim Holtz! One of the challenge guidelines is that ALL participants should work from their own copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3. This is required out of respect and appreciation for Tim, who put countless hours and passion into writing the book. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will even autograph it for you :)
Challenge #2 is to use Distress Glitter ~ the "how to" may be found on page 56:
In case you missed my post for the first challenge (click HERE), I've decided to create a book for this challenge. 

My second page features a photo of myself standing in front of the Eiffel Tower while vacationing in France. I used a couple different colors of beautiful Distress Glitter on my page:
I adhered a layer of pretty antique linen Distress Glitter to a die cut grungeboard butterfly:
and I dipped the homemade rose in Clear Rock Candy Glitter which I think resembles a coating of sugar. 
I'm also entering this into I am also entering this in the Sunday Stamper challenge where Hels is challenging us to feature the color PINK. 
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
