Scraplift Style Swap!

Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses 
by Lynn Shokoples

For this layout I didn't step out of my comfort zone, I leaped!
My first challenge was scraplifting a layout from Laurie Lariviere, a very sweet friend of mine and a very talented artist.
I also challenge myself to use bright colors, where I tend to use more earth tones in my projects. Secondly I love to layer and I held back on this one! And no inking all the edges, that was a first for me!!
It was fun to jump out my comfort zone and try a new style! Here is the link to Laurie's layout

My lay-out isn't really a lift of someone in particular. I have been seeing a lot of stamping and use of mixed media on backgrounds lately. Usually I am a little afraid to not keep my papers as they are, but for this assignment I tried to 'let go' and did some random stamping and gessoing on the background and some more rough distressing on the edges of my papers. 

Bo Bunny supply list:
Patterned paper: Celebration, Country, History, Legacy/ Anthem
6 x 6 paper pad: Anthem
Stickers: Anthem Combo Sticker
Chipboard: Anthem Layered Chipboard Stickers, Anthem 12 x 12 Chipboard
Brads: Anthem
Notewothy: Anthem
Stamps: Distressed Textures Stamps

Designer Note: I titled my lay-out 'limited edition' because this photo is pretty much a 'limited edition'. My brother would do everything to not have their photo taken. This spontaneous photo that I took of him is a very rare one.

And It's finally here! The Shopping List for May's class that will for sure be starting on Monday! I know y'all were worried!
