I just had to participate with the Finding Inspiration in a Layout challenge over at the Moxie Fab blog. I think it is a fabulous idea! I loved the background of this scrapbook page (pictured below) with the large blocks of patterned paper, stitching, distressed strips, and ribbon tying everything together. I emulated those techniques and layout in my card above using some Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend paper, ribbon, and chipboard. I added a little extra distress around the two largest block of patterned paper using the PTI tea dye duo inks and used two layers of sloppy stitching for this card. I also used PTI's woodgrain impression plate and the chamomile tea dye ink to bring out the woodgrain a bit more. Other then a little extra texture I really stuck to the base layout of the scrapbook page.
I am also super excited. 1) I had a great run tonight 4 mi with a 10:11 min/mile pace. That is pretty quick for me especially in this humidity and 2) I made the Schlosser Designs DT (announcement here). I think #2 might be part of the reason I ran so well...I am quite over the moon about being on their DT starting in August!!
