Design Team Challenge #19

Hi all!!! Thank you so much for stopping by! It's good to be back-last challenge we were all on Crop Dog! Have you tried it out yet?  It's pretty cool if you like digital scrapbooking.  If you haven't yet-give it a try, you might like it.

Well, for this challenge, I was to do a basket weave, use patterned paper and or use chipboard. I have a lot of fun doing this layout partly because of the picture i used!  It looks fun to me!  It reminds me of the great time we had that night in Hawaii with my family! We were at Senor Frogs and it was a party!!!


For my layout, I used cream colored grid paper, bright lime green paper  patterned paper and a couple of pieces of chipboard. I actually journalled on a piece of chipboard (star) and I like how it turned out.  I also put some glossy accents on the start and traced it with a red marker to try and make it pop!  The other two pieces of chipboard are the "o's" in the word balloon at the top of the page.  I colored them red and orange just to add a little color. 

I cut the words "balloon hats" out of the same patterned paper as my basket weave to add balance to the layout.

I also ran the bottom two green strips through my cuttlebug to add texture to my basket weave.


I hope you like it!

And as always, thanks for stopping by.  I will see you on the 15th on Crop Dog!

I too like the texture on the green mixed with the patterned paper. And journaling on the chipboard star was a great idea. Looks like a fun time! :)

Too fun Shannon! LOVE Cuttlebug!! So simple to use, but adds so much to a project! Your weave is fun and your photo looks like you had a blast!

Love the mix of embossed paper and patterned paper in your weave. Those balloon hats are sensational! Looks like you were having a great time.

Another fun layout Shannon! Really love the texture you added on your lime green in the basket weave section. Journaling on the chipboard was a good way to integrate both to the layout!
