Enjoy - New Layout

The weekend is almost upon us, again! Where do the days go? I finished a layout this evening for a couple of challenged and had to photograph inside with flash, so the colors aren't great.  this is DD in wonder at the twinkling lights at Christmas.

I used the sketch for Scrap Your Story Challenge #20:  
I selected this sketch to play along with Memorable Seasons - July Challenge #3 Technique.  This challenge is to use white space.  I followed quite a few recommendations on the challenge as white space if VERY difficult for me. My pages are always full from edge to edge. I used spray ink in the white space, clustered everything along the diagonal and cut my photos quite a bit so there would be space for white space.

I also played along with the Southern Girls Challenge - No Spooling. For this challenge you are not to use any ribbon, twine or cotton on your project, basically anything that comes on a spool. This was pretty difficult for me as I almost always use ribbon or twin of some form. I dug out the border strips, border punches and used faux stitching in lieu of ribbon.

The title originated from the word challenge over at Sunny Side Up Creations. The word to use was enjoy.

Finally, I played along with Sketches 4 All - July Mixed Alpha challenge.  I used the word Joy from LYB chipboard words pack and added EN from a pack of Honey Thickers for my title "Enjoy".

Here are a couple of close up photos:

Materials Used: Paper - MME and CTMH; ink - CTMH; tag - CTMH; chipboard words - LYB; title stickers - Thickers; border strip - K&Company; circle cutter - Creative Memories; light string - Quicktuz; stickers - October Afternoon; border punch - Martha Stewart; 3D sticker - Recollections; gem - unknown.

Thanks for visiting!
