One of my goals lately has been to start to use up some of the paper that I have before I make any more purchases. While I am not committing to that 100%, I have drastically cut down on what I have been purchasing. It is hard since scrapbook paper really does bring me joy, but I have *so* much and really need to use the wonderfulness that I have!
I love to work from a sketch and the August Stack-a-holic Template Challenge from DCWV was a fun one this month! I pulled out my Dots, Stripes and Plaids stack and got to work on a layout from my daughters birthday party in July. I thought that the papers were fun for the celebration feel that I was looking for. Here is the sketch:
And here is my interpretation:
My favorite part of the layout (although small) is the upper right hand corner. I love the little "e"! I used Glossy Accents on it to give it a little dimension and shine. I have several more pictures of her special day so I hope to scrap those soon as well! Thank you for stopping by!
