Crop Addict's July Monthly Challenge

This month our challenge was to do a layout with a lot of stuff. We had to use 5 different patterned papers, bling, ribbon, staples, handwriting, paint, chipboard, and photos. I'm trying to finish Colton's 1st year book so I made another page for him using the challenge. I really like how it turned out, too! As always, I challenge you to try these items on your next layout. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. We're supposed to use as much stuff as we can but I didn't want to busy up my layout too much.

Oh, card was one of the three picked to be voted on in the Demo Planner Challenge so I am glad about that!! My first time being picked too! The card that won is very pretty so congratulations to her!

Congrats on your card being picked!
You did a nice job on your page, too. I have trouble using more than two or three patterned papers.
Maybe it's a comfort zone thing. This gives me food for thought!

Thanks for the comments, Pam!! I'm glad you are enjoying my blog! Using a lot of patterned paper usually makes me nervous too so I'm glad I did the challenge. Wasn't so bad after-all! : )
