Market Chic

This month has flown by sooooooo quickly, and I have so many unfinished scrap projects on my desk dining room table.

At Lasting Memories, our fourth challenge theme for the month is Anything Goes (as long as it's a LAYOUT) ~ so I thought I'd share this one:

I do like "anything goes" themes because it takes the pressure off a little ~ no need to stick to a theme or a colour scheme or a sketch ~ just scrap away!!  At Lasting Memories we are also happy for participants to combine our challenges with any other challenge blog criteria - it's all about getting those memories recorded onto a layout and sharing for all of us to enjoy.

I had fun heat embossing the flowers and recycled tags on this layout ~ something I don't do often enough!

My layout design was inspired by this picture at Pixels & Paper:

What I did:  I overlapped four large circles (doilies) to create the background of my layout.

The colour scheme of my layout was inspired by a challenge at Scrapbook Fantasies: Create a layout using only white and gold.

Prima Nieve - White paper flower
Kaisercraft 2cm White paper flowers
Green Tara 4cm Petals - White paper flower
Tsukineko VersaMark - Watermark inkpad
Moonglow King Midas Gold embossing powder
MFT Die-namics - Little Letters alphabet dies
