My first layout, Remember, uses one of my favorite patterns from the Scrumptious collection as the background, and also doubles as my title. I wanted a lot of texture on my layout, so I used burlap ribbon, three-dimensional die-cut leaves and twine along with my patterned paper. Be sure to check out the original post on the Chickaniddy blog to find out how I loop twine on my layouts. The photo is one of my favorites of my brother and Lizzy from our fall photo shoot last year.
My second layout for the month records the best Halloween costume that my grandmother ever made for my brother- a teenage mutant ninja turtle. I used a tone-on-tone effect with a white die-cut star background on top of a piece of white cardstock. Be sure to check out my original post on the Chickaniddy Blog to see how this background adds a lot of texture and interest to the page without making it too busy and taking away from the photo and embellishment.
