No white challenge with the September Hip Kits!

Hey everyone, today I am here sharing a new layout I created using the September Hip Kits. It is 'Gratitude/Family' week and I was also given the challenge of -no white!!! No white! What is that!?! ha. I do not remember the last time I had a layout without white card stock on it. But I accepted the challenge and here is what I came up with:

Hello Sweet



For this layout I have used the amazing September kits featuring the Crate Paper, Inc. Gather collection and a photo of my daughter and son not long after he was born. One of the Crate Paper tiny word stickers summed up this moment 'my heart is full', just the perfect sentiment to describe this photo. The sticker was hard to get a photo of due to the foiling. 



I have a vertical strip on the left of the page grounding the photo and have embellished diagonally across the page. I added a fringe to the layers and some gold paper from my stash. 



The embellishing contains mainly layers of the Gather ephemera, a tassel, chipboard and dimensional stickers, with a touch of Pinkfresh Studio chipboard hearts, Simple Stories enamel dots. 


The title was a mix of the ephemera and chipboard stickers by Crate.



It was a strange thing for me to have a patterned paper as the base of my layout instead of my white card stock base I am so used to. I hope you think I have met the challenge!
