Happy Sunday everyone!! I am here today with a quick share of a layout I did using some more lovely Graphic 45 papers and Thickers for my LSS, Scrapping Frenzy . These are some more photos of my trip to Portland, Oregon with my fiance' in Nov. 2011. It is almost a year later and I am still scrapping them! Came home with over 200 pics from that trip! I was inspired by the swirls on the decoration of the elephant statues which were similar to one of the papers. I used another larger strip of more muted colored paisley paper to break up the polka dot background paper. I also backed my photos in dark brown and cream cardstock and inked all of my elements. Here is a look at the whole layout:

  used the orange and white dot paper from Graphic 45, as well as fussy cut some swirls out of the other paper by Graphic 45. To add dimension, I heat embossed the fussy cut swirls with UTEE. Also I layered another piece of dot paper by Graphic 45, some cheesecloth, a piece of shimmery beige cardstock, and a piece of seersucker fabric under my photos. I also cut a large circle out of cream cardstock and added a long strip of paper- scrap of Carta Bella paper from my stash for more color. Then I used flowers, buttons, and a few resin embellishments to make my clusters. Here is another shot:

 For the title, I used 2 different packs of Thickers, which are quickly becoming a fav! Alright well I will leave you with one more photo for today and that’s it! I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy this cooler spell we’ve been having!
