{Double, double!}

With that, I mean a two page lay-out and two challenges! :)


ScrapFIT's challenge #36 is to use paper strips. For my paper strips, I used scraps and stitched them down like this. Melonie Madison's challenge at Citrus Tree Studio is to use a white background w/some yellow, anywhere on the lay-out.

Another California vacation lo. I am psyched to have another vacation lo completed! This trip was so incredible and I still have photos that need to be made into los. :)

{never forget...the PACIFIC COAST.}
journaling close-up ~ {I used jillibean soup and gcd pp, coredinations dotted swiss cs, AC cs, Worldwin cs, 7 Gypsies tag, AC letter stickers (I have not used letter stickers in so long...yay for the stash!), Sass sparkly letter stickers, MS baker's twine, Prima bling, BG fabric covered brad, blue fabric flower that came in a kit, MM "CALIFORNIA" sticker, & machine stitching.}

Thanks to the ScrapFIT girls for their inspiration!!

Thanks to my friend Melonie for her inspiration!!

And, finally...thank you for coming by my blog. Hope you all have a great day! It is bitter cold here...I mean freeze-your-nose-hairs, squeaky snow, long underwear, kind of cold! Stay warm, friends!! Sorry for the mediocre photos today...these winter days make photographing a two pager a challenge, let me tell ya!

hugs, patti

What an amazing layout! There is so much to love...the stitching, the strips that have such a fun patchwork feel, the colors, that yummy blue flower & the twine randomly placed within your journaling. So gorgeous, definitely one of my faves!
