For Julie :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a layout I made for the latest mood board challenge at Scrap Around the World :) 


For those that have followed me for awhile might know this story -- but those that are new to visiting me, might not :) 

For four years, I was honored to be on Nikki Sivils Design Team :)  In 2010, she created a collection named "Something for Everyone" :) 

Each paper in the collection was named after a Design Team member -- including me :) 

So there is a scrapbook paper out there -- literally with my name on it :) 

And the background paper on my layout is my "FOR JULIE" paper :) 

And yes I have hoarded my JULIE papers *wink* :)

But I saw Scrap Around the World's mood board and decided to use one of the papers :) 



The pink doily is from an antique store :)






I am going to put this in a frame and hang it in my scrappy space :) 


Here is the mood board :) 





I was inspired by the colors and the circular motion in the lower right hand corner :) 



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
