Me & You & some Crate Paper

Happy Saturday, everyone!  It's Missy again today...have you ever started creating a page and you thought that it was turning out to be a mess?  And then once you finished it, you just loved everything about it?  This page I'm sharing today is a good example of that.  

I created this for today's Saturday Steal Challenge over on our boards.  I chose a layout by member momtobecca and came up with this.  I used the Flea Market line from Crate Paper, and it is GORGEOUS!  There are so many colors and patterns, and I had black & white photos.  I wasn't sure which papers to use and how I wanted to coordinate them....I was just frustrated at first.  But then it just sort of started coming together.  I think my favorite part is all the shiny gold!  It's hard to see it in photos, but there are gold frames, gold chipboard, gold in the top banner piece, gold in the button under the photos, and I even painted some shiny gold onto my modeling paste in the background!  

One of my new favorite things is to add thread to my pages.  I have so much colored floss, and I just simply pull each thread apart and make a pile of it.  I just like the look of it.  I also love layers and textures :)

I cut my title on my Cameo and added some paint to it.  I also outlined part of it with a black pen.

Shiny gold paint!  I picked up a cheap bottle of it at Michael''s Martha Stewart and it was on sale!  It paints right on so easily.

This collection has some fabulous this pre-stitched banner piece!  Just adhere muss, no fuss!

I sure hope you hop on over to our boards and join in with our daily challenges.  Lots of fun, lots of inspiration, lots of prizes!

Have a great day!

Missy :)
