I had a couple of July challenges I still wanted to do before I got started with anything else.   So I combined the two of them together for this layout.   I spent so much time last month making all my Christmas cards I thought I might have forgotten how to do my true passion.....layouts.

For this layout I used the sketch at "MY CREATIVE SKETCHES"   and then used Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at "1-2-3 GET SCRAPPY".   I did the diagonal, lots of black, gray background and lots of yellow.    I really liked the sketch and the style worked well with how I like to mat everything, and that allowed me to use both yellow and black in my matting.   There are shades of grey lines in my background patterned paper but I cut it down and matted the whole layout on some solid grey card stock also.

Check out the links below to see the details for yourself.

  1. Great choice for color combination! I love how the yellow makes your page so cheerful while the black grounds your cuts. Definitely an adorable photo! So glad you got to get it scrapped (I know what you mean about the cards - it seems like once you get into the groove it's hard to change gears...)

    Thanks so much for sharing!
