Miles and Miles

I love how color challenges make you use colors you otherwise ignore...  Check out the colors this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments:

I'm sure you're thinking "she has two girls, why wouldn't she use these colors?"  I have to admit, this isn't my favorite purple, nor my favorite pink, but I think I found a great picture that highlights the colors.  Here it is:

I'm in a block/grid layout rut....okay not rut, because I love the look, I just may be overusing it lately.  I think this is a Page Map layout?  Sorry, I didn't jot done the source.

A bit about the page:  I dyed my White Bakers twine with a reinker/rubbing alcohol mix, pierced the word "MILES," and hand stitched the title.  The remaining letters come from the Billboard Strip.  The top middle rectangles were left plain after many trying other looks.  I had originally done some embossing folders, but I just didn't think they tied into the rest of the page.   The numbers on the right are chipboard that I colored using my Rich Razzleberry Craft ink.  I used the lower blocks to add a touch of journaling and date.

Now get over there and check out the rest of the design teams' projects.  LOVE.LY!
