Scrap the Girls - October

This is something a little different for me. Brighter, cleaner, and I don't know, 'obvious'. 'Obvious' in the way I've used themed papers and embellishments. That's not my normal style but I don't know, something about these papers screamed at me to buy them when I was at my LSS so what was I to do?? LOL!

The LO is a result of this month's challenge at Scrap the Girls. This month it was a recipe challenge comprising flowers, two different alphas, multiple photos and staples.

So loved
products used:
cardstock - Core'dinations Spotted Tillie Dot
patterned paper - Echo Park Summer Days (Banners, Borders, Journaling Cards)
embellishments - Ruby{B}Lou flowers, Making Memories staples, handmade flag
alphas - American Crafts Thickers (Wonder, black, foam), Sam & Lucy Weave Extras
tools - Martha Stewart  edge punch, Tim Holtz Rosette die, Kaiser clear stamp
messy stuff - Radiant Rain (Ginger), Inkssentials Glossy Accents, Kaiser white acrylic paint

Now I'm off to get my grunge on! Hope you're all having a great weekend.   :)
