If Only I Could Carry a Tune


How do you like my "catchy" post title?  I cannot carry a tune but I sing all the time... when I'm alone in my car and when I'm in my craft room.  And when one of my favorite songs comes on the radio, I crank it up because it's such a terrific beat and I sometimes just have to stand up so I can"bust a move!"  No, not really.  But I do like to try!  :)

My layout for today (and not the only layout for today) was submitted at Scrap Much
for their Color Palette challenge for December.

Here's the palette:

Here's my layout.  I chose a sketch from Becky Fleck/Page Maps (June 2012):
Here I am, trying to sing!  The sentiment on this page is true... I cannot carry a tune!  My sister and I just had to have some fun with a toy microphone on Christmas!  :)

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Colorbok
Vinyl Shapes: American Crafts
Snowman & Ornament Gift Tags
Red Rick Rack
Font: Cricut Stamped

Tags are so cool to use on layouts!  There's such a variety and they are really pretty on a page.  All I did was add a bow at the top.
Rick rack covers where the two colors meet.   
 These cute little vinyl shapes really had me stumped on how to use them.  Not sure why, but I always seem to have a hard time to figure out how to use them on a card or layout.

My page title..... very fitting!  :)
 More gift tags with rick rack at the top and vinyl shapes around the snowman.

Thanks for stopping by!
