Studio Calcio You and Me Layout


     I have really been challenging myself to use my Studio Calico kits, even though they haven't been my normal style. This was the Camelot kit from I believe June. Except for the names I ended up really loving how this came out.  I loved up right up until I added my handwriting...anyone else have that problem?
     Since I was outside my comfort zone I went searching all over for inspiration and man did I find it.  Sketch #75 over at Let's Capture Our Memories was my main starting point. Laura Whitaker really hit it out of the park for me on this one.  I loved how simple it was and the doily...was just calling my name.  I took a plain white doily and misted it with Tattered Angels spray.
     I was also inspired by the Challenge Yourself blog idea of having yourself in the photo with one of the men in your life.  I am rarely in our pictures so I love the idea of this blog.
    I also want to enter this into Crafty Girl's Challenge - Anything goes. I appreciate finding new places to show off my creations.
   So what have you been working on?  Until next time - keep scrappin!

    1. Thanks Shirley - I loved the big alphas until I added my handwriting for the rest of the name, but I just have to get over it :-)
