Did you know?

That American Crafts runs a weekly challenge on their blog? I'm a long time follower but a first time participant this week. The summer has run me ragged with swim almost every day of the week but today we were rained out so I got to play!

American Crafts: Ribbon (Fall Green & White Targets), The Ultimate Gel Pen (Pastel), Precision Pens (08,05,03,01), Remarks (Runway)
Stampin Up: Cardstock

I wanted a simple layout for this picture since it is one of the few I have of Mitch & his childhood friend. I was inspired by the ribbon to create the background on the cardstock. I used the ribbon spool to trace the circles with the gel pen and used the Precision Pens to frame my picture. I rounded out opposing corners to keep with my circle theme.

I'm focusing on adding more of Mitch into our All About Us album so don't be surprised if the next few layouts are all about him.
