Layout #66 - Creative Accents November Challenge

Hey, all, this is the mid month reminder to get your layouts or cards in to Creative Accents Challenges using this sketch:
And here is what I was able to do with it:
I love this sketch, but I had a bit of a hard time with it, not sure why. I think because I didn't pile on the embellishments, I was thinking it looked a little blah, but the paper (awesome pack from Studio Calico I won at the Creative Accents Masquerade Crop!) is so busy that I didn't think I could really fit more in. Anyway, now that this page has had time to grow on me, I'm liking it more than I originally did. Funny how that happens! This was Ailis's kindergarten class celebrating with their certificates. At this point in time, she'd only been with her class for 2 months or so, but she didn't have an ounce of trouble making friends and fitting in. It's a quality that should serve her well all her life!

Supplies: Studio Calico patterned paper, Close to My Heart cardstock, ink, and stamp set (Classmate Alpha), Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Walnut Stain), Twinery twine, and Sakura pen


  1. This is awesome paper! Love what you did with the twine behind the picture!!!

    Hugs, Carole xxx
