Well I have a new LO that I just finished for the Lasting Memories this last challenge was all about trying something new.  Well I know it is ridiculous but somehow despite the growing trend I had never done a page with a banner on it.  I'm not sure why since I have nothing against banners I guess I'm never quite sure how to integrate them into my design so when I saw the sketch over at Pencil Lines I thought I would give it a try.  I kind of like the way it turned out.  I also used the colors from Color Combos Galore this week such a beautiful pallette to work with.  Well here is the finished page...


I like the way this page turned out!  A few design details to share about this page.  The paper is from Pink Paisley the Anthologie collection.  I still have a few more from that collection that I'm hording because the papers are just so much fun to plaue with!  I used Broken China around the edges to reveal the resist is the paper the added some Mist to give the paper a distressed look.  I also water distressed all the edges and added some Tea Dye to the edges and creases.  The metal latice is a peice that I stole out of my dad's garage. Shhh... he doesn't know how much I like to go in there, you never know what you will find!  I added the leaf vine which is from Heartfelt Creations and puched out a few flowers and tada!  The perfect embellishment!  I added the title on the picture but it didn't pop the way I wanted it to so I went around the letters with my white pen to give it that little something extra! 

Well thanks for stopping by and having a look!
