Here is another layout inspired by Shimelle's class "The 20 projects": using a busy background.
I used my august Counterfeit kit and a sketch from Scrapbook Generation.
It was the first time that I used my washi stamps (with silver ink). I love these stamps and I will probably use them very often!
Actually, using our brand new things was a challenge from a scrapfriend, Deb, and I thank her for the push! Here, I used a camera stamp, a tiny bow die and feather dies (cut from old patterned vellum) for the first time! (Well, I had no time for scrapbooking this year, but you could always find some shopping time, right?!)
I used colored ink markers to stamp my label, and I added 3 tiny pink brads. I love to make my own labels! They are cheaper, they always match my layout, and they are in my maternal language (my family doesn't want me to use english on my scrapbooks)...
The blue ribbon (and also the cream one) was offered by a scrapfriend, Hilsmom, thanks to her!
