Live a Little, Learn a Little

I've said it before, I had a grand time playing at different sites online this past weekend for CHA.  I did win a few new products playing around.  This layout is from challenges at 2Peas. 

The Story
This is my Jay when he was little...he's now 6'5" and growing!  I used this opportunity list some great qualities Jay has.  The challenge from 2peas was to use pattern on pattern paper.  This was up my ally so I had a great time with this one.

The Layout

What I Learned
  • Circle on circles gives the layout a fun, energetic feel
  • Layering patterns is not that easy.  I was fortunate enough to have enough pattern paper from one line from Cosmo Cricket to match up.
  • Black and White photos are great to pop off the page with any color. 
  • Separate your layers by adding a ink border around the edge of the circles as well as the paper layers.

I have a busy weekend ahead and I know I will get "crafty with it."  I have several more fun Glue Dot Adhesives projects finished and ready to share.  Monday I'll have a RAK/Giveaway here on Debby's Dare just to say thanks to all the bloggers who read Debby's Dare.

Happy Crafting!
