Florida Scenery


I am so glad I came across this double page sketch at Stick it Down blog.   You can check it out
HERE       You still have till this afternoon to enter.     I'm glad I found it today because I had some great scenery pictures I took a week ago when we were in Florida and with this sketch I got to use a  lot of them.       I'm going to enter this layout in another challenge also.    I found out about this new challenge blog from an online scrappy friend  you can check it out   HERE      It's by Gloria Stengel Designs and its called Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog.     Today they announced their first challenge.    Challenge #1 is  "What's Your Style?"    Well I'm not sure how to describe my style but neat and clean.    Lately I'm really into matting everything and layers.   Plus I love banners too.
So I have it all in this layout.   I matted the pictures, every piece of paper and the banners, plus there are layers with a couple of the pictures overlapping and the embellishments overlapping and layers of patterned papers.

I love your clean style. Especially the overlapping, matted photos and the banners! I mat EVERYTHING (most of the time). It makes the photos POP! Thanks for playing in our FIRST challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!
