The Biggest User Challenge

On 'Something from [almost] Nothing' Shimelle has some challenges this weekend.........one of them is 'the biggest user'..........how much stash can you put on one page and still like it.........well, I already know I'm not the biggest user.......and I'm not sure how much I like this LO.....though I think that may be because of the colours I've used.
The photo was taken at school........so I thought I'd use up some letters of the alphabet that I rarely use........I've loved how some of my classmates have framed pictures with brads.......so had a go at that......and, of course, I always love flowers.
In the end I used 60 brads,21 flowers and 15 alpha stickers........definately a girly page......but I doubt I'll often overload quite this much!!!

Oh you did well here Jacky, loved the torn edges and the way you have draped the fibre. Very cute school photo and the alphabets are perfect for it.

What an adorable picture. I've selected a couple of chipboard alpha packs to add to one of DD's school portraits. I love the look, too!

Jacky, I'd never be able to part with all those cute brads! However, I do love how you framed the photo with them. I don't see anything wrong with the colors used--my daughter's favorites!

Blimey Jackie, that's serious stash sacrifice there. I'd be up in the wee small hours picking it all back off again if that was me....no willpower! LOL Fabulous page. Love the soft colours. Now, where are my tweezers? Lx

I absolutely canNOT scrap with lavendar, so I admire your ability to pull this together. Great page and great stash busting!

What I love about this is that you've got lots of lovely details and busted some stash but it hasn't detracted from the beautiful face at all. Nicely done!

It really doesn't look overloaded at all - just a beautifully detailed page!
