Here is Kelly's gorgeous layout we got to lift:
I've been wanting to use this cut file, and now was the perfect chance. I loved the way the stripes looked behind the cut file. I almost wanted to use the same paper but I didn't want to totally copy, so I dug through my stash and found Dear Lizzy's Lovely Day collection that had some colorful stripes. I found an old raw chipboard frame which I colored with a gray Pitt Pen.
The title words are by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. They're the same ones Kelly used. I didn't have any stickers from the Dear Lizzy collection, so I fussy cut the flowers and houses. I outlined the inside of the cut file with a black pen, which is something I've been doing a lot lately. It really makes the cut file stand out, I think.
I really wanted to use a ticket like Kelly did because I have a gazillion tickets, but they just looked too large here for my 8 x 8 page.
