  8. I combined with the PS Lyric challenge from Taylor Swift's "You belong with me", "hey isn't this easy?"
    I used MME Abbey Road collection and Basic Grey Oh Baby - Blue Bonnet. I used the letters from Abbey Road for my title (+an L) and the strips from the bottom of a couple other MME AR papers for the banner, pennant, and sub-title. The flourishes were cut from the AbbeyRoad "name" as well. Fun challenge!! TFL Janelle

  16. Other than the twine and the pop-dots, my layout was 100% Basic Grey (my favorite)! I used papers from three or four Basic Grey Christmas collections, plus a little chipboard piece from the PB&J collection that I received in the mail this afternoon.

    I had to turn the sketch sideways to accommodate my horizontal photos. That affected the title and journaling placement as a result.

    Happy birthday, and thanks for the sketch!
