Simplify with Piccolo Embossing Powder

Hello, it's Arin here and I have to say Globecraft & Piccolo Embossing Powders have breathed new life in my interest in scrapbooking!  

Yes, I have admitted that I am not a fan of scrapping, but being able to add layers of interest and depth without a whole lot of embellishments and pre-planning the layout, is right up my alley! 

I challenged myself to do a real layout with only using what I had in my supply stash and the Piccolo Embossing Powder. I feel I have myself a layout that looks interesting and tells a story that was quick and easy to throw together, yet the high quality of the Piccolo Embossing Powder really carries this beyond the simplicity of this layout!
