Paper, Paper, Paper!

Have I ever told you that I love patterned paper?? It's one thing that I buy all the time. I mean, I'd much rather pay $0.90 for a piece of paper than $4.99 for a pack of embellishments. I find myself buying more and more paper all the time. But that's not a problem if I use it, right?

I was browsing my favorite scrapbook websites yesterday and found this sketch from Paper Lovers Studio. Even though the deadline for the challenge is past, I thought I'd still play along just because the sketch was SO inspiring. 

I mixed together the Paper Bakery July scrapbook kit "Broadway" and the Capture 365 kit for this page. I forget how awesome it is to have kits because everything goes together so well. You don't have to look around for stuff to match. The only thing I added that was NOT from one of the kits was the epoxy brads. They're from my stash. (Trying to use up old stuff!) The Studio Calico "Atlantic" mini papers that came in the Capture 365 kit were perfect for the paper strips. And I loved that piece of 12x12 paper from The Pier collection from Crate Paper... I almost couldn't use it! 

As always, thanks for stopping by!
