Rice Cereal layout---spots and circles

Here is a layout I did for the Scrapbook Cafe Sat challenge #21. It involved using anything with circles and dots. This layout was suppose to go together quick and easy since I had the photo picked out and used a Scrapbook Etc. made in minutes layout as a base. However, I got carried away with the embellishments. First, I thought the photos were kinda dark for my base so I dotted and dashed borders around them with my trusty uniball signo white pen. Then for the bowl I decided to put some dimensional glass effect paint. For some reason the paint cracked so now my bowl looked like an aged ceramic one enhanced with fluid chalk. I wanted a chipboard title but my Silhouette can't cut chipboard so I cut 4 layers of black cardstock glued them all together and layered the brown ontop...sanded with an emery board then fluid chalked the whole thing. It does resemble chipboard quite well. I cut out the spoon then inked it with silver and layered several layers of clear embossing powder to turn my paper into metal. Had to attach to attach the spoon with some pizazz so I added eyelets and crochet yarn. I wanted my journaling to show up better so I sanded the box a little to let the white core show through. The brads on the ribbon strip weren't my idea as they were in my sample layout.
I can't believe my daughter was that little not too long ago.
She is on the go constantly and refuses to let us feed her most of the time. I vaguely remember when she could barely eat this rice cereal.
