Here's another layout I did for the Paper Secrets website. It was for the February Sketch Challenge. I got a little carried away with the black paint. I was going for a creepy vine effect, but I'm not sure it worked. Oh well. I love experimenting with paint, even when it doesn't quite work.
Here's the sketch:
And here's my LO:

We took Dad to the Mandarin when he visited in 2010. When he returned in 2011, he insisted on going again. For this layout, I tried out my new border punch. I might've gotten a little carried away with it. I also included some Chinese coins that my kids collected from the Mandarin years ago for Chinese New Year, and our fortunes.
I scrapped my parents' wedding day for the Paper Secrets vintage challenge. I know they aren't together anymore, and hope they don't mind. But I still enjoy looking back on these pictures. For the vintage requirements, I used lace, pearls, flowers, butterflies, buttons, and a timepiece.
