It's Not a Dinosaur! - Love My Tapes


 I created this layout for Love My Tapes, to showcase how well the tapes work on 'boy' pages.  I love how this turned out.  I've scrapped these photos before, and I was never satisfied with the outcome.  Now I'm happy.  ;)

See - you CAN use lace on boy pages.  Being 'chose-y' helps.  :)


Don't worry - I'm not coming over to the dark side of banners...  it's just what 'worked' here.   I do think it was kind fun to try it once...


The wood shapes from Studio Calico were a good, neutral match for the tapes - I want to use these again.


I added a die-cut piece of fabric from the 'anchors' fabric sheet.  And the ink splats were just for fun.


Supplies (Love My Tapes):
fabric tape - blue stripe (FT020 Silverton), red stripe (FT020 Royal), Olivia (FT007), Jane (FT011), Chocolate mini-check (FT015)Mix mini-check (FT018)

fabric sheet - anchor on beige

wood embellishments - Studio Calico
