M & G

Hello friends!  Happy Sunday to you!

Today we have a new challenge for you at Challenge YOUrself and guess what?  It's a free for all... Anything Goes this month!  How fun is that?!  Here is my layout to share with you.

Aww, just look at my little sidekick!  My grandaugher Molly is always up for taking some selfies with Grammie!  I just love this little girl to pieces.

I have so many of these project life style papers and I don't scrap in that style so I was determined to use one and experiment with using it as my background paper.  I have to say that I'm happy with the way it turned out!  What do you think?  I was afraid it would be too loud for me but with printing my pics in B&W it really toned it down and worked out really well.

Here are a few close ups...

The background paper is a Dear Lizzy by American Crafts and the die cuts are Amy Tangerine.  The other embellishments are a mixture from my stash.  I had fun experimenting with this so I hope I've inspired you to do the same.

Join in with us at Challenge YOUrself this month!  It couldn't be any easier than an Anything Goes challenge!  It's time to show off your style!  I look forward to seeing your designs. For more inspiration give us a visit.  So many ideas!  Be sure to include YOU in the picture and to link up by July 4th for a chance to win.

Thanks so much for your time and for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping to you!
