Feeling cheeky...

I am feeling a bit cheeky this week with this entry for the Less Is More challenge because A) I am not sure if I can enter a Scrapbook layout and B) some could argue it isn't a clean and simple project... As I have said in the past I believe that sometimes a project that looks shabby could easily look as much clean and simple only by changing the patterned paper used... Anyway I will understand if my entry get pulled out of the challenge but hey, a girl has to be cheeky now and again!

I loved the colour combination!!! Absolutely gorgeous and inspiring! I was cheeky once more by adding a splash of baby blue to make it work with my photograph. I used a mix of papers from American Crafts, October Afternoon and from Kaisercraft. You can find the Kaisercraft papers at Merly Impressions.

I had so much fun designing this layout! I loved the colours and it really got me out of what I have been creating lately so it felt like fresh air! Did you notice I didn't use any spray or splatters?! I have learn one thing though: on the photograph my layout turned out a looking more cluttered then when I was working on and given the chance I might have removed one or two things so I think that in the future I will photograph my layout before glueing everything down just to have a better "view" of the final image. I hope this inspired you!

Well there's a lot of 'blank' space at least lol
We do allow any type of project, but, we do want to see clean and simple designs with not too many layers.
You work is without doubt sensational...

Of course a scrap book page or layout is allowed as long as it is CAS... there's lots of blank space even though it is covered with DP. We wouldn't delete it but hope that you won't be cheeky too many times!!!!
It's a great layout nevertheless!
Thanks so much
