LOTS going on!!!

Hello hello!!!

Sometimes there are some really BUSY patterned papers, and I get so intimidated by them that I only use a little bit of them here and there.  But I decided to try and get out of this rut by challenging myself to use a lot more of a busy print.

I used this bright colored, overlapping polka dots paper from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Day Dreamer line.  I cut the paper and an angle and used big chunks of them on the side and bottom.  I kept embellishments around my photos minimal, so as not to distract any more from the photos themselves.
