My Mind's Eye and Gossamer Blue are hosting tryouts for a Guest Designer spot. How could I NOT give this a shot? A chance to guest design for one of my all time favorite scrappy manufacturers?
May I present to you, THE layout?! LOL!
I absolutely LOVE (have I mentioned how much I really, truly love MME and everything they produce?!) this "Boy Crazy" collection! I don't have a toddler any more, nor is he a "little" boy. He's ALL boy and deserves to have fun backgrounds that reflect his zany, quirky self. JUST like this line. It's perfect, the perfect boy line.
I wanted the stary paper to pop a tad more upon the busy phrase ladden background, A little distress ink went a long way in accomplishing that task!
I combined this entry with a PageMaps sketch and a twist challenge over at Paper Secrets. The twist was to use chevrons somewhere. I think there might be a chevron or two, don't you?! I doubled up the washi tapes to make banners that didn't stick to the layout but rather had some "flapability".
I think I have just about every button pack that My Mind's Eye produced... I probably use at least one My Mind's Eye button on just about every layout I create too! Thought the starburst of twine added a fun twist to the explosion of activity going on in this layout.
I also bought just about every one of the little label sets too...
It's no secret I like to fussy cut. A fair number of the elements are goodies that I fussy cut from a sheet of the patterned paper. Nor is it a secret that I love my Cameo and use it on just about every layout. There's a spot of die cut there too!
That's a lotta love there, I know. I hope you feel the love! Thanks for stopping by!
