July's ODBDLYLS7 Challenge

This month's ODBD Let Your Light Shine Scrapbook challenge is :  create a layout of any size using at least one circle, ODBD stamps, and your favorite color or a color in your photo(s).

I took some inspiration from one of my top fave scrappers , Keisha Campbell ,for this layout. 
Trying out the white on kraft look as well as putting the EK Success Jumbo scalloped punch to good use. 

The ODBD stamps I used here are : 
Each Minute - for the journalling
and the Dahlia stamp from their Garden Collection. 

I quite like the effect of the Dahlia stamp 
in different Distress Inks on the small mailing tag banner. 

Did a little misting and masking using the new MR Kraft Doily with TA's Chalkboard Mists in Firefly & Apricot. 
I simply used the misted on kraft doily when it's dry for my photo corner.
There's a little Tim Holtz tissue tape butterfly border . Love how translucent it is . 
A simple and quick layout to finish . ;)

Pearl I totally LOVE everything about this LO!!!! The stamping, the tags and twine and the amazing border!! Love the kraft and white look!! A wonderful photo of you!! :)

Yeah lots of goodies coming from this CHA! Hoping I can contain myself. I am finally feeling good about where my stash level is at. I am trying to look at things and consider what is really what I have already had something similar to. Maybe another round of just having a taste of a few items is a good idea. I caved this month and actually ordered the Studio Calico kit. First time ever and I have been drooling over them every month for over a year. I am in love!!

YOu should tell her to take a look - I'm sure she would be flattered!! Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog - especially the last one - yes you should be congratulating yourself - I do the same thing - everyone thinks I work full time - and they are right - I do!!!
