Just Us

My layout for today uses one of the die cut  papers from my Set #3 for the Counterfeit Kit challenge.  I added a few layers of scrap cardstock to build up some layers.  The grey pattern paper is all I have left from my Mini Album and it is a nice accent on this page.  I cut the doily in half and tucked the papers behind and on top of it.     

When I was making my mini alphabets I made the orange and green colors to go with the a couple of the pattern papers I picked out.  I think they turned out well.  I colored the clear heart rhinestones with markers in green and orange.  The one on the "here" chipboard is colored with a gold marker.  I wanted to bring a bit of the tan background in here.

 I stamped the "Where We Went" journaling spot onto tan cardstock and have it hidden beneath the orange and green cardstock layers at the top.  I've attached a clothespin to keep it from falling to far beneath.  I inked all the edges with the grey ink and then outlined with a black pen.  

Thanks for stopping by.
