Matching Game Layout

This is another one of those layouts where I ended up with a gazillion collections, kits, and embellishments all over the the floor in the family room while I picked and chose from them. I'm also continuing to get comfortable with mixing and matching patterns and collections, in fact, there is almost no plain cardstock on this layout!

This one is also for a bunch of challenges:
1) Elle's Studio - Show me your tapes
2) Scrapbook Circle - Sketch challenge
3) Two Peas CHA Summer Social Challenge #9 - Put it in a pocket
4) Paper Issues - Wishy Washi theme

I love these photos and wanted to get them scrapped. They are from this past March. Ellie had closeted herself in the master bathroom (so Carina wouldn't bother her) and came out with her own matching game! I have no idea what possessed her to create her own game, but I was so impressed. Her matching pieces actually match, and it was so touching to see how proud she was of what she had created.

The pocket is kind of hidden. I used a glassine envelope that I got from the Curtsey Boutique Etsy store. I dressed it up with a little washi tape from Target, and then attached it to the page using that fun cloud/heart washi that came in a Polka Dot Whimsy kit. Since the little pocket is so full, I ended up needing three layers of dimensional foam tape for the photo on the left.

There are a variety of papers from CTMH, Bella Blvd, and GCD as well as a bunch of Elle's Studio tags (the blue chevron ones on the left side of the page are actually the same one, I just cut it in half so I could get a little more mileage out of it). The bracket and flower pieces are actually stickers (one is Crate and the other is Bella Blvd). I cut small circles to go in the centers because the Crate one was more of an off white color, and there was actually some writing in the center of the Bella flower that I didn't want to use.

It's a busier layout than I normally do, lots more elements, but I think it works. Thanks for coming by, hope you are enjoying your weekend!
