You have been challenged!

The first challenge at NVS was posted! Bop on over here and check it out. Join the challenge for a chance to win a superb prize. The prize is $20 to the sponsor of the month...Thelovelyteaspoon. It is a fabulous etsy shop for all your zany jewelry needs.

Here is my layout based on the collage for this month:

I loved the collage for this month. I was really inspired by the grays and the little plaid skirt. I also loved the pop of red in the heart. I found a picture of my niece, similar to the one in the collage. I worked elements of the skirt into handmade embellishments as well as in the patterened paper. I added little touches of a camera, keys, beading, and dymo-like words. I found I've been leaving a lot more empty space lately. I'm not sure if I like it or not. But, I'm pretty happy with this layout! I just can't stop asking myself, "Does it need something more?"

Bazzil cardstock, KI memories grateful plaid shirt patterned paper, Heidi swapp/Queen&Co./Sticko bling, Card charms camera charm, 7 gypsies keys, Making Memories tiny alpha, Maya Road chipboard heart, Apple Barrel Laguna paint. Ribbon, thread, ribbon slide from stash.
