{Thank You! and a New Layout}

First up, thanks for all of  your sweet emails, comments here and on facebook about my GCD Studios Desgin Team announcement. You all make a girl feel loved :)

And now a layout to share...
I made this with the "Antique Garden add-on kit from The Paper Bakery.
One of my favorite things about this months kit is the fab My Minds Eye weathered wood papers, which worked perfectly for this photo from Santa Cruz. The paper reminds me of the old wooden planks of the boardwalk, and the red striped ribbon along with the fun little banner pieces and jumbled up twine are so reminiscent of the colorful banners that hang at each booth all along the boardwalk. That was such a fun trip, I can't believe it was almost 12 years ago. Makes me wish Summer would hurry up and get here!!  We are definitely counting down the days :)

As always, thanks for stopping by!
xo Mary Ann

I love the layout! The red is such a good pop against all the neutral and muted colors. I also like how you used the chipboard banners raw the way they were. Not everything needs to be heavily misted and embellished!
