This layout was created using all GCD Studios patterned paper.  I used papers from the "Ava" & the "Homespun Chic" collections. I also used brads and epoxy stickers from the "Homespun Chic" collection.  I used various size circle punches including a Martha Stewart starburst punch. I used pop-dots on some of the circles to give some depth to the layout.  And I actually THREE photos!! I'm so bad at being a "one-photo-a-layout" scrapper and I've been trying to challenge myself....and it sure is hard!

I also used a whitewash technique on the patterned paper that is on top of the teal background paper.  The pattern was just a little too bold and this toned it down perfectly so as not to take over the layout and still let the punched circles be the centerpiece.

Make sure to check out the GCD Studios Blog HERE!  Lots of pretty tags will be highlighted this month on the ole' blog!

Beautiful! I love all those pretty colors together. And you kind of had me fooled with the photo -- at first glance, I thought it was one photo, and you were holding the camera. :)
