I love patterned paper, and I'm not afraid to mix it up! This layout features 5 patterned papers and a patterned ribbon. I also pulled out one of my VERY favorite stamp sets, "You're A Hoot" from Close To My Heart. My background black polka dot paper is Fancy Pants Rough and Tough, the adorable owl patterned paper is Bella BLVD Finally Fall, the aqua polka dot paper, striped photo matte paper, and the aqua scrap on the top right are My Mind's Eye Lime Twist, the tiny journaling strip is a scrap from an older Close To My Heart line, as are the Colonial White cardstock squares I stamped those adorable owls on! I distressed edges with the cute little We R Memory Keepers Heart Attack tool! And of course, my thickers title, and 3 ribbon strips are from American Crafts. I attached the ribbon strips with my trusty Xyron 150 Sticker Maker, stamped with Close To My Heart black distressing ink, and popped up my hooty owls with ek 3D-Dots! Finally, I did a little coloring with a Close To My Heart color pencil in Robin Egg Blue, and added a few Basic Grey brads. And the best part - these hilarious shots of my adorable son!
