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 is the sketch:
 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 :)
