Lasting Memories #327 - Ribbon, Washi Tape, Or Paper Strips

Hello again! I am back with my third post of the day. If you are looking for my Christmas Cards All Year Round reveal, please scroll down or go here. For my Love To Scrap Challenge Blog reveal, please scroll down or go here.

Lasting Memories has a new challenge posted today. In January we are focusing on using up some of that forgotten stash, and this week's challenge is to use ribbon, washi tape, or paper strips.

For my layout I chose to use lots and lots of washi tape!

First of all, I started with a light grey background paper matted on a piece of black cardstock. Since the photo I wanted to use didn't have a lot of color in it, I wanted to go nice and bright and colorful with the washi tape. There were several times when I almost went with paper strips instead of the washi tape, but I kept working with it and I like the end result.

The photo had some extra space at the bottom, so I decided to just add my title directly onto the photo - something I don't do very often, but I really like the look.

The journaling says - Oh my word - I LOVE this photo of Ada! It has got to be one of my all time favorites. Her carefree attitude is contagious. Not a worry in the world - just enjoying being outside, going on a walk with the dogs!

Head on over to the Lasting Memories blog to see the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team. We do hope you get a chance to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back with one more project to share with you a little later!
