Trigger Target: Luminous Layers

Wow! I had the most fantastic weekend!! I got a my hair done by my awesome friend, Tricia, who happens to be an excellent hairdresser. Then, I went to the Beth Moore conference Friday night and Saturday morning, followed by a luncheon at our church. It was an amazing experience. I have never seen anyone so on fire for God. Beth Moore is so inspiring and her zeal is contagious.  I really needed that. The worship, let by Travis Cottrell, was also amazing. God is so good!

Later that night, I had a hot date with my hubby, whose birthday is today!! We had a great relaxing Sunday enjoying our family. I will be posting his birthday card and some pics after this post!

Given that my weekend was so full, I really hadn't planned on entering the Trigger challenge at Moxie Fab World this week, but this evening after all the kids went to bed, an idea popped into my head. I decided to give it a try.

This week's trigger gave me an opportunity to use up some of those pesky scraps. I dug through my box and found paper that matched the layers of fabric in the inspiration dress (which, btw, I would totally wear if I had the figure for it.) I used my circle punch on them and then distressed them with brown chalk ink. I glued them on a strip of paper, carefully matching up the patterned paper to the fabric on the dress. I cut off all the edges. I really like how it turned out.
