LM #564 - Patterned Paper Play - Plaids/Ginghams/Checks

Hello, hello! Happy Sunday to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend.  

Today I am playing along with the latest challenge at Lasting Memories #564. Our theme for September is "Patterned Paper Play" and each week we give you a pattern that you must use on your layout. This week's challenge is to use plaid, gingham, or checked patterned paper on your layout. I used a piece of yellow gingham paper on my layout:

I am finally back to playing in my traveler's notebooks. I have really missed creating in this size and I have so many different notebooks going on at once - I really need to work on them more! 

For this layout, I have used more scraps from my August kit for Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash. I had posted earlier this week an update post on what was left from that kit and before I put what was left back in my stash, I made this layout. Everything on this layout was in my kit except the red alphas. 

These photos are of Ada with her new puppy, Winnie. She is quite smitten with her new little friend and we are happy that they bring Winnie over to visit with Nana and Pops, too!

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I love the little flower stickers that are on the Fern & Willard sticker sheet. They were the perfect little embellishment for this layout. The phrase sticker could not be more true and is from one of the Bella Blvd sticker sheets that I had included in my kit.

It's hard to read the word sticker above because it is a really light pink, but it simply says 'adorable', The scalloped border die that I used on the bottom of the yellow gingham paper is my new favorite find. I have always loved the wonky scalloped border stickers that are sometimes included on sticker sheets. I have been on the lookout for one and when I found this one it was the closest to what I wanted - and I got six other border dies in the package, as well. They are Avery Elle's Elle-ments Dies - Slimline Borders. I have a feeling I will be using all of these dies quite often!

Be sure to check out the Lasting Memories blog to see the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team. I hope you have a chance to play along with us - I would love to see your take on the challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
