Three Amigas Weekly Challenge- "Go To Layout"


Today's challenge was hosted by Sharon Graham and it was to choose a quick layout that will work for you in a pinch. With the new Big Shot dies this is really easy, run that paper through and there's your background! I used the Urban Garden paper with the Top Note Big Shot die for this with some Kiwi Kiss ribbon, silver hardware and Soft Subtles brads. The sentiment is from A Little Birdie Told Me stamped in Kiwi Kiss ink. Flowers are colored with Stampin' Up markers Pretty In Pink, Old Olive, Celery, and Gable Green.

We'd love to have you join us, just post TAWC in your keywords so we can find you.

I'm glad you stumbled across my blog! I am always happy to chat with displaced New Jersey natives! I have to admit that I'm jealous of your craft skills though. I wish I could be that crafty. Anyway, I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to add your blog to the ones I follow. I hope to talk to you soon!
