My assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Make a page that puts several patterned papers next to one another and uses BORDERS between them. Great idea! A solid border in a neutral color is a wonderful way to divide many patterns and subdue an otherwise busy look.
I cut this retro background with my Silhouette and filled it with ribbons of patterned paper similar to the colors in my photos. Digging into my stash organized by color, I selected papers from Bo Bunny, Crate Paper, Echo Park, Jillibean Soup and Little Yellow Bicycle. Quite a nice little stash bust!
The alphas are from American Crafts and Bella Blvd. I love mixing colors and fonts when it fits the theme of the layout, which this one certainly did.
