Happy Together :)

My hubby and I had been away for the past week, celebrating 2 years of marriage in San Francisco! We had such a great time. I already printed a few pictures to start scrapbooking our trip :)

In search of a sketch to spark my creativity again, I came across a blog hop among 5 challenge sites - each with 1 element needed to create your layout entry.

The hop began at Sassy Lil Sketches. Of course, their element to the challenge was a sketch:


Continuing on to ScrapFit, The Cuttlebug Spot, Scrap Tiffany, and Crop Suey the challenge also called for 3 of the same item, paint, lace, and embossing.

So... here's the layout I made featuring papers from the "Happy Together" collection by Fancy Pants. (Click to view larger).

This layout was also inspired by Abby's challenge at The Paper Variety - its as simple as 1, 2, 3. Use 1 color of mist or paint; use 2 flowers; and 3 patterned papers. The Scrapbooking Cottage is our sponsor and Stacy is offering a Bo Bunny "Midnight Frost" kit. Why not play along?!

Here is a close up of the textured banner pieces (Swiss Dots folder to coordinate with the patterned paper). For this reason (triangles) using it for ScrapFit's shape challenge. I also did some light stitching around the middle mat.

TGIF! I hope you are gearing up for a fun weekend! :) Along with unpacking, catching up on laundry, and hanging out with friends - I hope I can squeeze in a few more layouts!
