Best Friends

Need your day a little brightened?! Check out this super bright and colorful layout that I made with the Amy Tan Sketchbook collection!

I got my inspiration from Paige Evans and her Tutorial at Two Peas in a Bucket a little over a month ago. She had a wonderful idea for this "paper weaving." She used a lot of those super fun extra strips that come at the bottom of patterned papers where the manufacturer's label is. Be sure to check out Paige's Blog. She does some amazing work with patterned paper. I am amazed every time!

I also used many of the manufacturer's ends for these strips as well as cut a few from the patterned paper to get a wide variety of colors. This just shows how *much* of that collection I still have left! I love it so much, but it really is dwindling down.

I weaved the papers over and under just like in the tutorial. I used some of the die cuts and stickers from the collection for my clusters around the photos. Looking at my scrapbook.. I have noticed that all of my bachelorette party pages have used this collection! :)

A set of Thickers and arrows always does the trick! 

And a final close-up. I have to say that I am obsessed with the roller date and phrase stamps. They are so cool! And I don't even have as many as some people! I only have 5.. with one on the way ;) Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get to have a scrappy weekend... because I will be at work!
