MEXICO {DT work for FWAB}

hello scrappy friends!

this month i'm hosting the scrappy challenge at FLOURISH WITH A BLING

 “add a memory file/storage pocket to your page”

 with August being the month of the summer holidays i figured this will be the perfect challenge for september. I know everybody came home with a lot of cards, tickets and other travel memorabilia to preserve, so create an amazing layout about your journey {for example} and store them!

here is some inspiration from me:

i used TIM HOLTZ and FWAB products on this layout. 

the paper is from TIM HOLTZ "travel destinations" paper pad. i added two storage pockets/memory files to my layout and one flip for extra pictures. 

for the post cards i used my picture and TIM HOLTZ' craft postcards. i distressed the edges of the picture and shapes the card with decorative scissors.

i used the crafter's workshop "tile texture" mask with modeling paste to add extra dimension to the background. then i cut the my embellishments from cardboard using TIM HOLTZ alterations "hardware findings" die. i coloured the cardboard with graphite and added crackle paint to achieve the weathered look.

the car is cut with TIM HOLTZ alterations "old jalopy" die. i coloured it, added crackle paint and embellished it with the gear wheel and the brad.

i made the memory files from craft cardstock and pattern paper. i used TIM HOLTZ idea-ology "file tabs" for the file tabs:-)

the road sign i cut from a pictures i took in MEXICO. i'm usually taking so many pictures of different buildings, road signs, etc. without us on them {as my mother calls them "postcards"} and then they end up stored on a server never to be printed. so i thought this is a good way to use at least some of them. 

the amazing flourish is from FLOURISH WITH A BLING - the new ELISE flourish and flower set
i used ELISE flourish black for the swirl and the grey flower and ELISE flourish antique brown for the brown flower. 

i used TIM HOLTZ idea-ology "chitchat word stickers" for my sub-title.

and idea-ology "salvage stickers destination" for my title.

you've got until until september 30, 2012 midnight to upload your creations in the GALLERY.

i hope you will join me in this challenge!

have a scrappy day!
