Mixing it up with Susie!

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today with a layout featuring the Farmhouse Collection.

I created this layout using one of my favorite techniques - layering coordinating papers behind a photo. I chose papers from the Farmhouse collection containing colors that accented the photo.

I also added in a piece with a large polka dot pattern from the Chiffon collection and a piece with a tiny dot pattern from the Urban Oasis collection. I inked the edges of the papers with either Barn Board or Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalking Inks and added a chipboard piece in the bottom right.

This vellum quote by Patsy Gaut is perfect for creating a memorial layout.  Sometimes finding the right words is the hardest part. I kept it simple, letting the vellum extend past the edge of the paper creating a delicate detail.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the disease.  I encourage you to remind all the women in your life to do a monthly exam - early detection saves lives.
