Wild Thing!

This is my take on the layout Jules' created last Sunday (Picture of Contentment) using Shimelle's layout of the week ( I like using sketches now and again, and like Jules commented - it is a lot quicker than trying to create your own from scratch. This layout was completed in super quick time!

I wanted to do a layout based on these brand new patterned papers from Glitz Design - Love Games collection. I used two patterned papers from the range (Damask and Stripe) and followed the sketch for the basic layout of the backing papers. I used Bazzill 'Just the Edge IV - Pepperpot' for the trim at the bottom of the photograph and the piece at the bottom of the page. I used American Crafts Thickers (from the Scrapaholix Club kit for April) and cut the flower on the Cricut machine and added a Delish Design brad.

I love this photograph taken in Florida and I think it matches quite well, especially with the stripes! Why don't you try using a sketch for your next layout - it's a lot quicker than thinking one up from scratch. There are loads of different sketch sites to be found on the internet.

Please leave a comment to say you have visited and I will put your name in the BLOG CANDY draw for April. Thank you.
