Wonderful You Layout

Supplies used: Sassafras Serendipity Sunshine Lollipop paper, Close to My Heart Live Your Style stamp set, CTMH Sunset/White Daisy cardstock,
CTMH Chocolate/Sunset/Cotton Candy inks, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge, Colorbok Gems, and Kaisercraft Fozz Felt.

The September 2011 Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is GRIDS.  At first I was stumped but then remembered that I have been wanting to do some weaving and I came upon a sketch that got my mojo going.  This layout is loosely based on this Scrapbook Generation sketch.  I changed up the photos and turned it into a one-page layout.

I created my grid by simply weaving paper together.  I cheated and used the Sunset as my base, cutting it part of the way across and leaving together on one end.  I didn’t even measure because I knew the odd cuts would be hidden under my photo.  After loosely weaving in the white stripes, I lined them up with the outer edge and worked towards the inside.
