2013 Design Team Challenge # 5: Page Pattern 52

Hello  All!

Thank you for stopping by! Our first challenge for March is a pattern and grid color.  The pattern is #52 and the color is bamboo!

The photos I used for this layout are from my Navy Daze!!! I am in Japan riding around with another sailor through the city of Yokosuka taking in all of the scenery! We rented bikes from our Navy Base and went out riding.  It was a lot of fun.  Before then, I had not rode a bike in years! I used pattern paper for my photo mats and I used my die cutting machine to cut out the title.  I love the title, because I think it goes well with the pictures.  No rhyme or reason for the colors-I just like brightness!!!!!!!!

Thank you again for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

This layout shows just how active you are and it also looks like you two had lots of fun. The colors are really great.

Shannon, great job! The bright colors and patterned mats show movement that go with the title. Love the font used in the title. The bike ride in Japan sounds fun :)

Couldn't add anything new that hasn't already been said. I agree with all the comments. Great job!

The color scheme is great. The stripes on your paper seems to add depth, almost like crimped paper or a corrugated effects. I get a sense of movement and going places. Love it.

I like the combination of the two different patterned papers, Shannon! And the large, bold title is very appropriate! Nice job! :)

This is one of my favorite pages that you have done! I love the colors and the photos tell a distinct story. I think you did a great job of using colors and patterned papers that really make your photos pop. Great job!

How fun Shannon! Wow, Japan! I'll bet you did go a lot of places and see a lot of things! Good for you! I, too, love the color being one of my faves.

Shannon, the Pattern paper colors work so well with the Bamboo Grid Paper and the bold orange font used in the title just pops off the page grabbing your attention! The coordinating color brads are a nice touch too! That clock sculpture close up helped to solve my question on "what is that?" at least partly!

LOVE the color combination! and the fun title (both what it says and how it looks visually.)
