Beautiful Boy

Well, we survived our camping trip (it was nice one day and rained the next) but it was pretty fun overall! I hope you enjoyed seeing a peek of my crafty space too! I loved checking out all the different craft rooms of my fellow DT's! So fun!

I made this layout for the Last Scrapper Standing challenge at Memorable Seasons. I'm late in posting it here, but it was for the second challenge which was "borders and/or banners", and I made it through! I must say it's really fun, but holy the anticipation kills me! 

I got this fabulous linen paper from Creative Accents and I thought it I'd try using my Cameo to cut a bunch of decorative borders with it. It cut beautifully, and I love how it turned out! I used some kraft cardstock too that I cut with a couple border strips (Tim Holtz and Lifestyle Crafts).

I wanted to make sure that I kept it really simple with the rest of my layout. With a background like this, it could easily be overdone. I used one of my favourite Quickutz alphabets for the title (Gazebo) I just love it, but I don't use it often enough.

Well, I'm off...I have to go vacuum and finish my father in law's card.  

Happy Scrapping!
