Off To Work

This layout went together with yardstick and a single piece of paper Jellybean Soups - Cool as a Cucumber.   To coordinate with the patterned paper I tried to pull colors from it for all my matting, the double on the pictures, around the patterned paper and then on my border punch piece.

I embellished my layout with wood veneer pieces and then tied it all together with a handmade burlap bow I got in a swap.   Thank you Lisa.

Now for the inspiration for this layout from a trip way back in 2010 for work and pleasure.
I used the sketch from March 15th at   "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"   I obviously only used 2 pictures instead of 3 and turned them but the sketch layout was my inspiration.    Check out the challenge yourself =, there is still a week to play along.
