LM #401 - Paper Stash

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are having a good weekend. It's been a nice relaxing weekend for us - those are always nice!

We have a new challenge up today at Lasting Memories. I can't believe it is already the last challenge of the month - June is going by so fast! Our theme this month is "Stash Busting" and today our challenge is to use at least 5 different patterned papers on our layout.

I just love these photos of Miss Ada from this spring. She just looks so darn cute and she's getting so big!

For this layout, I used Fancy Pants' - Millie and June - collection. I did manage to use 5 different patterned papers - 4 of them are easy to see - the other paper was the cut apart sheet and I used bits of it for the pink circles and the gold and white heart paper for my date tab.

I also used this month's Blend - A - Sketch at Scrap Our Stash

You are to take inspiration from both of the sketches to create your layout. I took quite a bit of inspiration from both. From the left sketch, I used the big paper panel at the bottom of the page and from the right sketch, I used the two photos, the page split in half and the title and embellishment placement.

You also needed to add star embellishments and/or star patterned paper, so I punched out some gold metallic stars (to match the gold metallic hearts in this collection) and scattered them around like I would have enamel dots or sequins.

Since the gold metallic is hard to see in the photo, here are a couple of close-ups:

Be sure to stop by Lasting Memories to see the layouts from the rest of the design team using 5 or more patterned papers. We would love it if you played along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
