I loved working with this sketch because it allowed me to incorporate multiple pictures and keep the focus on them. Since I typically design two-page layouts, I stretched the sketch to suit my needs. For this layout I jumped into the gorgeous Cappella collection again and used the Falsetto 12x12 Double Sided Paper as my background. (A tip for 2-page layout girls: buy 2 of the papers that you want to use as your background). I also incorporated the beautiful Cream Pearl and Rhinestone Stick Pin by Jenni Bowlin into my embellishment cluster.
You have until Saturday to link up your layouts here http://www.trailmakers.blogspot.com/ so start scrapping!

One technique that I used in this layout was to highlight the circles in the Cappella pattered papper by placing Kaisercraft pearls over them.

I primarily used Fancy Pants' Rusted Sun Collection in this layout, and I also added the beautiful LYB Clothesline die cut paper, both of which you can find at the Trail Makers Store.
One technique that I used in this layout is fussy cutting. I decided to cut out the beautiful tropical flowers and leaves from Fancy Pants Designs' Laguna Beach paper and use them as embellishments. I hand cut the flowers, inked the edges, shaped the petals and leaves to make them rounded instead of flat, and then adheared them to the layout with pop dots to give them dimension.
Don't forget that there is still time for you to enter your layout for this challenge! Details are at http://trailmakers.blogspot.com/.
