A layout challenge

Well if any of you have seen the new line of Amy Tangerine Papers for American Crafts, you will understand where my idea of a layout came from. I was at work and kept hinting to Emily that we needed to look at this really cute Amy Tangerine line. Finally, enough was enough....we sat down together and looked at all the paper and goodies. CUTE....REALLY CUTE!
There was one style of paper that had some print on the left side with clouds kinda over it. We didn't order it, however, Emily did put the idea into my head that it would be a great challenge if I could do a layout, with the same idea, using some "Stamping Bella" stamps.
Now how perfect is it that the "I AM script" and "Cloudy hanging block" actually exist, within the line of the greatest stamps in the world.

It was a great starting point for my layout, and without a doubt a challenge for me. Especially that there was nothing, like a sketch that I had in mind to go from. I just sat down, decided to use paper that I had, and went with it. You know what? I kinda like the way it turned out. I also proved to myself that I don't always NEED to have a sketch to get started. The best way to get a layout started, is to just sit down, challenge yourself by pulling out a few papers and a few embellishments, and JUST DO IT!
Wishing you all everything wonderful for the week ahead.
