FDFF Challenge: NUMB3RS!

Hi again friends and followers! I am here today to share my take on our new challenge over at Frosted Designs! This one was relatively simple, and I was able to put this layout together pretty quickly once I came up with a way to use 'numbers'. Our winner this time gets a lovely prize from Molossi! Also don't forget there are bragging rights for the DT picks for Top 3! I hope you will join us!

For this layout, I wanted the photos to do most of the talking, so I didn't do as much journaling as I normally would. I was originally going to cut each photo apart on the paper once I matted them but I liked to composition of them altogether so I decided to go with it! Once I had them in place, it was easy to place a few other elements around the page to tie it altogether. Here are some pics:

If you can't tell.. I am totally ADDICTED to wood veneer embellishments now. I have bought the travel set, states set, and cameras set from Studio Calico and have more on the way from the new FD shop! I really like them just plain cause they go with any color scheme but also it would be really easy to alter them to any color with mist, paint, ink, etc. That's the best part! I used several little cars and cameras on this page, I didn't want to add flowers or anything cause I felt like it would take away from the geometric look I had going on for the layout. I also added some mini pearls and a few dots of Stickles in Patina. Here is a close up of near the bottom of the page. 

 For the title, I used 2 different Thickers from the Amy Tangerine collection. The paper is also Basic Grey 'clippings' and the license plate numbers are Tim Holtz. I also stapled a bit, stamped, and hand wrote some things around my photos. 

Well that's about it for today! This layout was simple to put together once I had my idea...took me alot less time that one normally would. It was fun to think about how long it took us to drive all the way from Alabama to Oregon this summer! So many memories that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world with my sis! I still have lots of photos from the trip and I will be scrapping alot more of them since I have them all printed up now. Thanks for stopping by, I always really appreciate your comments, they make my day! 

Don't forget to link up your project to the Frosted Designs blog no later than Sept 5th to be entered to win the prize and the DT picks for Top 3! Good luck, can't wait to see what you create!!! ;) until next time scrappy friends~VV
