The Use Your Stuff challenge for this week is Tags or Frames
We are also teaming up w/ the Double Trouble blog and their challenge is to use Something Plaid.
Here is my example for both challenges:
"I Woke Up Like Dis"
Turns out I dont have any frames in my stash, or else I just couldn't find them, so I went with tags.
I used 1 whole tag and the top of another.
I also included "something plaid"; the BG paper.
The plaid BG paper is older than Madison, who will be 18 in January.
Speaking of, this is a photo of Madison when she was (much) younger wearing one of her dad's masks.
For those who are unaware, my husband loves clowns and scary clowns in particular.
IDK how old Madison is in this photo, but I hope to eventually stumble across some clue and then come back and date this spread.
I chose the plaid BG paper because of the challenge but also because it has a subtle Halloween-feel to it, that goes well w/ the mask in the photo, and includes some purple, to match the purple in the photo.
I'm not sure why I felt the need to bring turquoise into the layout but I like the extra pop of color it adds.
The tags are from Elle's Studio, as are the "Hey There", and the star and circle puffy stickers.
The alphas and the "smile" quote are from Studio Calico.
I randomly layered and tilted the alphas to allow the entire title to fit in the allotted space, plus it adds a bit of visual interest.
The title is currently a very popular saying and because it is "a phrase that someone says when they wake up looking good looking"* I of course had to use it for this photo, LOL
Lastly, that 17+ year old paper is from a DCWV Halloween Stack.
