Day 255: Celebrate the Journey Layout

So I recently I was approached by an online eye wear company called Firmoo. The kind folks there offered me a free pair of glasses to try out their online optometry service. I've never ordered any eye wear online before, but I figured I'd give it a try. I've had my new glasses for about a week now, and I love them so much I decided that they needed their own scrapbook page. 
I decided to go with the new Paper Issues Sketchy Saturday sketch, I stamped the base layout with an image from the October Stamp of the Month. I divided up some Enchantment Fundamentals papers to fill in the sunburst element. These papers have a pattern printed in white on one side, and glossy on the other. I used both effects in this layout. Also, so much stitching. While I was stitching it at Starbucks I started to wonder if I was nuts, but I'm so pleased with the finished effect. 
I added the titles using a large piece of Heidi Swapp wood veneer and the matching Fundamentals sticker pack. I painted the veneer with Gold Wink of Stella. I added a Cricut butterfly detailed with Black Wink of Stella and a bunch of Pomegranate Fundamentals embellishments. The glitter heart stickers are my fav!
 I want to share a bit more about my Firmoo experience. I loved the TRY ON feature. I uploaded a snapshot of myself, and spent quite a bit of time "trying on" tons of glasses styles, not because it was a pain, but because it was fun, like a little online makeover. I always feel pressured to hurry up and pick something at the doctor's office, so my glasses often end up looking very similar each year. No one at home cares if I have 6 different windows open to flip through my favorite styles and compare them side by side. I was a little worried about ordering glasses online, but the process was easy and my glasses arrived within days. 

After my order was placed I had time to fret. Would the glasses feel cheap, since the prices quoted seemed so inexpensive? What if the prescription wasn't right, or I hadn't measured my size correctly? My fears were for naught. I am happy to tell you that I love my new frames. They are finished nicely, and the ear pieces are smooth and comfortable. My vision with the lenses (with both anti-reflection and anti-UV coatings) is crisp and clear, and my prescription is correct. Plus the front is a bold black frame and the sides are totally and adorable ombre pink!

The folks at Firmoo were kind enough to provide me with a 15% off coupon link for anyone who wants to try out ordering glasses online. I don't get anything if you order, it's just a little bonus for you.  While Firmoo did provide this pair of glasses to me for free, my opinions are my own. I would happily order extra glasses from Firmoo again.
