Relax and Enjoy

Here's the layout I did for Paper Secrets Scrap Your A** Off challenge #29 and for Child's Play Challenges....

Relax and Enjoy

Paper Secret's SYAO challenge consists of 3 parts:

1) use this sketch: (PageMaps)

2) Pick 4 out of 8 products from a list provided. I used Pinwheels, tickets, chipboard, and twine.  

3) Lastly, one technique from a list.  I picked mist. I misted the white cardstock with light blue.  It's really hard to see, so here is a close up photo and enhanced to show the light misting:

Child's Play challenge inspiration was a Beach Ball.  Check out their challenge HERE
