Get Back to the Fundamentals: Technique Blog Hop

With the great Close To My Heart Simply Fundamentals special this month, the Technique Blog Hop is featuring this awesome paper for some amazing projects.  (If you're already hopping, then you should have arrived here from Tonya's blog.  You will visit Shirley next.)  Did you know that the paper is two-sided card stock: one side features a clear embossed pattern and the other side has the same pattern but in white.  For my project, I decide to show how I customized one of the layouts from the workshop guide.  (Ask your consultant to share it with you, or contact me if you don't already have a CTMH consultant.)

I decided that I wanted to use layout #4 for our recent Band Senior Night photos.  Since our school colors are purple and gold, I switched out the original Ruby background for the Eggplant card stock in the Enchantment Fundamentals paper pack.

Also, instead of using the Sapphire accents, I grabbed some Black card stock instead (which leaves the Sapphire for another project).  I also decided not to use both sheets of Eggplant as the 12"x12" background but rather used White Daisy from my stash instead.  That gives me more of the Eggplant Fundamentals to use in another project.

Don't be afraid to customize the workshop to fit your photos!  Be sure to check out all of the Technique Blog Hop Fundamentals creations.  You will continue by going to SHIRLEY next!
