Tummy Time - Layout

Two posts in one day isn't my usual style but I'm running out of time to link up to some challenges. For this layout I've played along with Let's Get Sketchy, October week 2.

I did change a few things up because I'm not usually an askew kinda girl. The top two photos are slanted but that was all my inner control freak would allow. One of these days I will be able to throw caution to wind and let paper and photos tilt, today is not that day.

Normally I mix lots of manufacturers on my layout and this one only has three, proving you can get more out of minimal supplies. I really wanted to see if I could like the end result with fewer lines being used and to my surprise, I did. It includes lot lots of embellishments, that poor brad pack took a beating on this layout. I'm happy with the stash usage here and it makes me feel less guilty about the amount of shopping I do.

This is my favorite embellishment and also a great stash busing technique. That piece wasn't a favorite in the layered chipboard pack because of the design, the shape was great. I took the pinked circle off of the plain circle and recovered the pinked circle with paper from the same Echo Park collection. After gluing it back together and adding a couple of pieces from the brad pack I had the perfect embellishment for my page. I tend to forget that it's ok to change something if it doesn't work you and that silhouette head certainly didn't work me.

Thanks for stopping by!
