A few layouts from our trip to Arizona:
Crate Close Knit papers and embellishments; AC thickers; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type; Studio Calico word strip; Heidi Swapp Color Shine (sweet cherry); MME decorative tape; Tim Holtz Distress Ink (broken china)
Echo Park papers; AC/Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party journaling block; Pebbles word strip; Crate Close Knit wood veneer; Sizzix butterfly dies; Twine & Ink stars; Studio Calico Mister Huey's (navy)
The "Hello" wood veneer is too heavy for the section of the layout where I placed it. When I tried to remove it, however, I discovered that the stain on the wood had bled, so it stayed where it was.
We found a great restaurant on Route 66 in the middle of nowhere. Glenn's dish was called Mexican Flag and I wanted to use red, white and green for the background. Trying to avoid large solid blocks of color, I cut pattern paper into diamonds. I am struggling, however, with how busy this page is. There's no grounding or place for the eye to rest.
