Having Some Fun!

Howdy! I am back with a layout and a card I have made this week on Spring Break! I have had a lot of fun this week-- between going to a museum, going shopping, and working it's been a busy week!

This layout is for the Let's Get Sketchy! challenge (which you can find here). I decided to play a lot with layering and textures on this layout. The collection I used is "Vintage Vogue" from Pink Paislee. It's so pretty! I thought a black and white photo would look good with the colors in this line. This is totally not my style, but I've been playing with different looks lately. :)  


And I have a card to show you that I made for the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge to use grids on your project (find that challenge here). I used my butterfly scraps to make this card. I stitched the grid (which doesn't look the best... don't look close) and then I closed the grid in with some baker's twine. Can you say colorful? :)
