CASE Study's 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

Today I am very excited to be participating in The CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop! If you are looking for the Wplus9 Release Group Post, just scroll down. Iwona has invited past and present DT members as well as previous muses to help her celebrate CASE Study's 2nd Anniversary. There are so many talented crafters participating in the celebration and prizes along the way for those that hop and comment, so be sure to leave some love!

You should have arrived here from the blog of the lovely Teneale Williams. Which brings you to me! This is the "Out Of The Box" challenge hop, where we were asked "to tackle something you never did before, whether it's a style, technique, type of project, etc." I couldn't think of anything that I have not tried at least once. So I decided to go with what I am most uncomfortable with - a scrapbook layout!

Hey wait! There's washi tape, and I do believe this is the very first time I've ever tried washi tape! That count's right? I always find layouts to be much more challenging then cards. I much prefer the smaller palette. But I finished it, and I don't hate it.

I hope you've had fun on the hop, the next stop is back to the CASE Study Blog. Thanks for joining us!

  2. Girl, I would never guess that you feel uncomfortable with scrapbooking. I've seen all of your layouts (I think) and to me it seems that you're a natural! You're not afraid to mix & match, use unique layouts like this one, you experiment. It's all good and absolutely fabulous!! Thanks so much for helping us celebrate! xxx

  3. Such a great page, girl! LOVE the way you've done your sentiment! I keep meaning to do that, but it just never seems to work its way into my designs. And you've absolutely rocked the Washi tape! Not to mention that yummy, subdued color palette... Sigh. Beautifully done!
