Piecing it all together
So today is my due date but since I am always late I am still scrapping away. I made this one for a sketch challenge over at Sarah's Cards. It is a great sketch calling for a large circle and some stars. I always print out ALL my pictures and organize them by category so that I am ready to go if I feel like scrapping a certain picture. I have been known to get 900 pictures from Photobox which was a real pain to organize!
My daughter loves puzzles and since this sketch called for stars I thought it would be appropriate here. I used papers from Studio Calico and BG Hopscotch line which matched the Sleeping Beauty puzzle she was making. I just got my GLEE CLUB Studio Calico kit which had this adorable camera stamp which I used here. I can see myself using this stamp loads!!! I also used a tag from Elle's Studio which came from my Magpie Kit last mont. What I enjoyed most about doing this layout is at the very end I wanted to use some washi tape but did not know where to put it. I then crumpled and pleated some at the edges of the circle. I have not tried doing this before but because of the circle shape I had to and know I think I am going to be doing this technique loads! I am loving washi tape!!!! I have stamped on it before which I enjoyed as well, but the pleating just added a girly touch which I loved (you can see it in the detailed picture)
