H2H NOvember Scrapbook Challenge: NO B&T!

Over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges, the month of NO-vember will be bringing us some tricky challenges where certain items or products are prohibited.  Our scrapbook challenge is NO B&T, and that is a true challenge not to use all of our pretty patterned papers!  I decided that the pictures of my girls and their Converse high tops would be the perfect photos to use with this challenge.  Here's what I came up with:
 My layout is based on 12x12 Sketch #94 from the 4x6 Photo Sketch Blog.
To get started, I stamped the checkerboard stamp from the Geometric Backgrounds in Black across the top and bottom of my two White Daisy 12"x12" page bases.  I then attached the Black card stock and Slate strips, followed by the two White Daisy rectangles.
 I decided to stamp my title directly onto the right White Daisy piece in Black with the Frameworks Alphabet and then color in with a Cranberry marker.  Both the Pacifica star and the Reel Life circle were cut with the CTMH/Art Philosophy cartridge.  I used the Reel Life stamp set and black and Pacifica inks for my stamping.  I am so glad that I wrote my journaling on a separate card stock rectangle, because it took a few tries to get it right! ;)

To embellishments my layout, I piled on blue & green and black &; gray epoxy bubbles; puffy stickers from the Chalk It Up assortment; arrow washi tape; and square stickers from the base & bling Free Thinker style sheet.

This layout ended up being plenty "busy" enough with my stamped background and card stock.  You should give the H2H No-vember NO B&T scrapbooking challenge a try!  Be sure to see what all of our designers have created.

Those high tops and kids totally rock! I remember when YOU wore them in high school...fashion always comes back around.

I love this layout! Those black and white hightops don't need B&T paper at all, but the checkerboard strips are perfect. I remember Melissa had a pink pair when she was in kindergarten, we both loved those shoes.
