A Little Cuppa Crazy

My LSS is having a contest this month to use the Abbey Road line of papers from My Mind's Eye. You just have to make a one or two page layout using that particular line of paper and only that line.

Since I'm still using my friend Susan's sketches from her Sketch Savvy blog, I decided to use this sketch with that line of paper.

Because the topic of the layout is the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and Alice, I wanted to papers to be vibrant and to mimic the craziness of the photo session we had that night. So I mixed and matched all kinds of colors and patterns from the line.

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use some of this fun trim! The little cotton balls reminded me of a white rabbit tail, and I loved the flowery teal Webster's Pages trim.

Since I have been so inspired by my friend Susan lately, she has also been doing some templates, and I decided to try my hand at a couple of templates myself! Here are the two I made for this page. You're welcome to use them for a layout, card or party favor if you'd like. Just a warning though, they are a little time consuming so put on a good tv show and start cutting!

Please let me know if you use the templates so I can link your project back here. It's so much fun to see what others do with something you made.

Wow! Another whole layout finished!! That must be a record for me in the last couple of years. Here's hoping I get a few more finished before Spring Break is over.

Now, enjoy A Little Cuppa Crazy --
