123 Challenge

The challenge for this month over at
is to Use the Word Miss, the colour School Bus Yellow and strips of paper.
Here's a couple of close-ups.

I love this Amy Tangerine paper from American Crafts and the bright colour is not the first colour I usually reach for so this was a good challenge.  Another thing I don't usually use is staples so thought I would include them on this layout, I've also done a bit of doodling and inking of edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, the twine is from Hemptique and the little heart paper strips are from the bottom of the patterned paper (you can use everything without wasting)....


  1. This challenge is on my 'try and do' list. But with my in laws from Scotland here for 2 weeks it will be lucky if it get done. Love your layout, a fab sunshine :D

  2. Good job with the bright color I totally understand how that feels we always have a comfort with colors we r comfortable with.
