Splash & Play

Last week we took a mini vacation with my mom and dad-in-law up the California coast, and spent a few days in Morro Bay and the nearby towns. It was great weather, great shopping, great food and all around a great time!  Of course I had to come home and scrap one of the pics from the trip ;)
I used Pretty Little Studio papers and embellishments, and this weeks "Out of the Box Challenge" photo as my inspiration. As you can see I pulled a few key elements from the inspiration photo. I love the mix of patterns on the rectangles, and that fun ampersand design too, so I had to make sure those were both on my layout!
As I started my layout, I had my supplies all laid out together. I noticed one of the packaging pieces was the perfect size rectangle so that was actually the piece that I used first, then built the rest of my layout around it.
That rectangle became this with a little bit of shabby-ing up on the edges.
A little machine stitching, a few alpha stickers along with an ampersand cut with my Silhouette, and my layout was complete!

Thanks for stopping by today!
