You Can Take Me Anywhere

Another week, another inspiration piece is up on the October Afternoon blog. This one blew me away. The possibilities, oh the possibilities! I suggest you take it and run away! Have fun! Lots of fun. Boy I sure did.

Just another layout using my favorite photo of all time. This one is mushy. But I can't help it. I love this guy. Not to say I want to be with him all the time (let's be realistic!), because then I'll get cranky. Haha. Hey, we all need our own space. But yes, he can take me anywhere. I left Malaysia to be with him and now I don't know if I ever wanna move back to my birthplace.

I decided to use that beautiful map patterned paper (Daily Flash Milk Money - Social Studies) as the main element on my layout. I wanted to mimic the wavy stitched lines of the inspiration piece and did just that, with the help of my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file. I layered a piece of chipboard from To The Point Flash Chip set on a circle label, added a heart sticker and a stamped tab, all adding pops of red across the layout. 

You can see that I machine stitched some of the wavy pieces onto the white background. Beside being inspired by the stitching in the inspiration piece, I also love stitching down stuff on my layout because then you'll know they're not going anywhere. Stitching is a great way to adhere bits and pieces to your layouts.

Don't forget to check out Alex's layout on the OA blog.
