New Challenge

My take on this week's Tuesday Challenge
Carrie has posted this week's Tuesday Challenge at For the Luv of Art which is to use wrapping paper on a layout or a card.

The wrapping paper that Carrie used inspired me:
Here are more views of my layout....

Fun Prima Flower and Fabulous Ribbon from FTLOA
Prima Say It In Pearls Cream directs the eye

I love color
Jillibean Alpha from FTLOA

"Laugh" is a digital element I printed a long long time ago

I ended up using just plain Kraft wrapping paper, and I stamped over a diecut lace paper, then misted over it as well to get the effect. I stitched it to Kraft chipboard from the FTLOA store. It was so fun to make!

Also, here are pictures from the 8/17 Tuesday Challenge on the FTLOA Blog by Brianne to use a grid for your design. My original photos were a bit blurry so I just re-did the photos yesterday.

I adored her layout so I thought it was very cool it was the challenge this week. The size of my photos made this harder, but I did it! Photos from when we went to Hilton Head in 2009. (Be sure to read the journaling!!!!)
