Maine...using a Sketch and Washi Tape

I am so happy with the way this layout came out.  It is based on a sketch from 
Sketches in Thyme.  I knew I had to try this challenge since I have tons of 
pictures for some events.  After thinking about the design, I decided that I wanted 
to use Washi Tape.  The vision that I had for this page is pretty close to the 
finished product.  YAY!!  

Once again, the title was given depth with my self made chipboard (layered the 
same size letter cut from patterned paper and a hot cocoa box).  The Washi Tape 
flowers were created using a new technique I learned on Washi Wahoo [A video 
tutorial that was hosted by  Lain Ehmann from  http://www.layoutaday.com/ and 
presented by Monica Bradford from http://scrapinspired.com/ ].  They came out 
cute and with a little practice, I am sure each one will improve.  



I numbered the pictures to match the journal card.  When I get around
to journaling, I will write something for each picture.

Happy Creating,
