I'm on a roll now. Here's the latest layout. You can find out the details of this challenge at this blog post. I tried to stick with just paper as embellishments, but it didn't work for me. I tried to use paper in place of that ribbon. In the end, I just had to change it to that ribbon. It made the layout work so much better.
Supplies: Kraft Cardstock - Bazzill; Pattern Paper - Studio Calico; Ribbon - SEI
I saw someone use the SC paper like this. I have wanted to try this since then. It took 2 sheets of the scallop paper to do this. Then the "Welcome Home" comes from another sheet of paper. My husband asked, "Why did you use that "Welcome Home" piece." Well, to me, where he is is home. And I thought it worked for the layout of us through the years.
