Lovin' Texture

I love adding texture to my scrapbook layouts.  I had someone pose the question of what do I do with all these types of layouts.  Most of them go into my scrapbooks.  You can see the spacers I make for these type of  layouts under the tab at the top of the page Debby's Dare Demo or just click on the link.  I also frame some of my layouts.  When I decorate the house for the holidays or season I'll pull out my favorite layouts and frame them.  

Living in South Carolina I don't get the opportunity to do many snow layouts.  This year is a banner year with two snowfalls already.  I love these photos of my guys out in the snow.  My husband usually works no matter the weather.  The last snowfall was so bad that he did not have to go.  So he had a blast playing in the snow with the boys. 

(my photo of the layout is a bit fuzzy.  I'm having camera issues...sorry)

I couldn't resist adding texture to my layout.  I have...
  • Magic Mesh
  • if you look very close you can see I have an embossed piece of clear plastic
  • EK Success's stone (very old)
  • two different types of lace/ribbon along with metal findings. 
  • Lil' Davis chipboard 

Do you know what I like most about this layout?  I love the way the photo placement came out.  I also like my new Fiskars border punch "In Stitches." 

Heads up...if print your own photos use the larger leftover pieces for your journaling. 

I hope you have a creative weekend and thanks for all the encouraging comments as I experiment with different mediums and styles of layouts.
