Log Cake

Hello, today I have a layout I did from a challenge in a class I'm taking at Big Picture Classes. This challenge was to repeat design. I chose washi tape for this challenge to repeat.
This was interesting to do and the washi tape gives off a nice background. I used the washi tape I had pulled this month from my Counterfeit kit and drew from that for more tape to use. If you have a love for washi tape this is a great way to use a bunch of it. You want to leave the edges open so your eye has a place to rest. I pulled in blues, reds and yellow tapes for the layout.
 The title cluster I used 2 different alphas for it and a cute cutout then added the metal button
 Trying to use up bits and pieces in my current kit, I found the journaling tag and with the pink frame thought it was perfect for the layout some more cut outs to layer the pictures.
 I took a picture of the cake's vitals too. We weren't there to enjoy a taste of the cake, but it was fascinating to see it.
 CTMH triangle studs to point to the picture
 A square doily to mat the mess hall picture and another button to balance out the page
This was one of the fun sites when we went to Gainesville in 2010. A living history exhibit of the CCC camps that were in our area and various rooms set up to see how they did live and since it was a logging camp, that is the emphasis on the PA Log Museum. Figuring since I can't find some information on my GGgrandfather I can assume he worked for one of these camps.

Thanks for stopping by and you all have a fantastic day today :)

Prior To

Good Morning you all, Wednesday and half way through the week. I made this layout from a sketch challenge over at Scrappin and Chattin yahoo group. I enjoy these types of sketches cause I'm not so good with leaving space on my layout but this one left plenty of space in the right hand to corner.
Here is the sketch:

I opted to use one picture instead of 2, used the background paper for a resemblance of a 2nd picture :)
 All the papers came from my Counterfeit Kits, The 12X12 from this month and the 2 butterfly paprs came from a prior kit. Wasn't able to get close to killing the kit this month but it has been fun using it when I can. My granddaughter Isabelle's 1st Dance Recital, I was lucky to grab these off of facebook for the layout.
 I added distress stickles to the percut scallop circle that made and excellent banner style element
Issa with her BFF. Thickers used from the current kit for the title and I had gotten some diecut stickers in dance to splash about the page.

You all have a great day and I'll see you all soon as I have 2 layouts to get posted this week :)
