Off We Go

I'm back today as Guest Designer for The Paper Girls Challenge Blog sharing my 2nd layout.  The theme for this challenge is vacation/trip/travel.

For this layout I used the Travel Stories collection by Carta Bella.  It's the perfect choice for this theme.  I just love the colors and prints!  Very versatile for most photos.  I kept it pretty clean and simple this time, with some light layering, coordinating collection stickers, little stamping and then topped it off with some little wooden accents.  For my title I traced the word "WE" from an old stencil and did some fussy cutting.

What an honor it has been Guest Designing for The Paper Girls Challenge Blog this month!  Thanks for having me, I had so much fun!

That's it for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by and happy scrapping to you.

Celebrate Freedom

Happy 4th of July friends!
I've got some happy news to share!  I'm excited to announce that I have been invited for the month of July to Guest Design for The Paper Girls Challenge Blog.  Eeek!  I'm so thrilled about this, it's such an honor!

Today I am sharing my first layout for Challenge #107 which is concentrating on a Patriotic theme.  I used the perfect collection too, Sweet Liberty by Echo Park.

I'm in love with all of the fun prints and I did my best to include most of them.  For my photo, I did some fussy cutting of ourselves out of one photo and layered it onto another photo for a 3D effect and because I wanted to display my favorite parts of both and make it into one.  Both photos were from the same day just not in the same picture.  I really loved how it turned out!  What do you think?

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop back by in two weeks for another Guest Designer layout.  Until then... happy scrapping to you!
