JOURNEY... 43

Mona Pendleton | Monday, March 26, 2012 @ 2:26 AM | , ,

Hello there! Hope you are all off to a great start of a new week! It's been a little while since I created a layout so I am caught up with DT commitments, I thought I would take the time to do just that. I'm so excited to have been chosen as the Featured Artist on the Donna Salazar Girlie Grunge forum for the month of March! Yahooo!!! If you are looking for some awesome inspiration and a place to interact with friendly designers, be sure to visit the Girlie Grunge forum! I had recently printed photos from a trip that Scott and I had taken several years ago to London. I pulled out pretty patterned paper from the  Donna Salazar Antiquities and Spring in Bloom collections along with lots of Spellbinders dies:
I adorned the layout with a few homemade flowers and foliage resisting the temptations to add glitter :)
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Sketchabilities sketch challenge:
Thank you for visiting ~ hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Donna Salazar Banner and Words
Dies & Templates: Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, Mix'd Media Elements, Rose Creations, Donna's Alphas, Shadow Flowers, Nested Lacey Pennants, Fleur de Lis Rectangles, Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Donna Salazar Antiquities, Spring in Bloom
