Hi everyone! Missed Design Team two months in a row because of vacation, so I was thrilled to use these new papers to create this two page spread. I love using fall colors and I think these patterned papers are adorable for either a "cute" layout or even a more "elegant" look. My layouts are a good example of using just a bit of patterened paper and adding to cardstock (I used Bazzill dot) to stretch your supplies. For this simple layout about my Thanksgiving holiday decorations I didn't even mat the photos and I love the clean and simple result. A little journaling with my signo pen (One of my favorite supplies!) and a simple rub-on directly on a photo with white-space (see the "Thanks(give)ing" on the rose)and I was finished. I love the results and hope you do, too!
