Yippee! I did it!

Ok, so I might be a little bit too excited about getting a layout done...but this Monochromatic Challenge over at Let's Scrap was a little too challenging for me as it has taken several days and several layouts later to actually do it!

Now trying to find paper that all works together in the same tones of one colour sounds easier than it was for me!


 After looking through my stash I found some really old Little Yellow Bicycle, My Mind's Eye and Bazzill cardstock that all worked together...I also found some BoBunny chipboard for my arrow and flocked brads and epoxy chipboard buttons from LYB.


I pulled out my favorite stamp set with Close To My Heart called 'Enjoy Life' for the swirly flourishes and the 'Boys at Play' for the Full Speed Ahead sign. 



Now for the required handmade embellie part of this challenge, I happened to come across the PERFECT colour match in fabric, some scraps from a project my girls were working on and so I cut three circles and layered it with a button and an arrow!




Alphabet letters are from Jillibean Soup (corrugated), Cricut and punch for the splash letters and splash( I added some Glossy Accents to these) and Thickers (glossy green)

So now that I know I can handle even the toughest challenges for me...I'm off to work on yet another one...stay tuned!
