52 Week Scrapbook Challenge - Use a Whole Collection of Paper on One Layout

This was another tricky one for me but I had lots of fun! First of all, I don't have that many "whole collections" of paper. I have a couple that are lined up for certain projects, and then I have a couple that I'm hoarding! lol To un-hoard them and cut into each of the 12" pages for one 8" page...well, I just couldn't do it! However, I had already cut into this collection from Three Bugs in a Rug for a mini album that I've started, so it was my choice for this challenge. Then the next challenge was how to use the whole collection on my 8" page. There are only nine double-sided papers but they're all very bright and busy! So I just started playing and this is what I ended up with. Coincidently the colors in the photo just happen to be a perfect match...isn't that fun? As for the caption of the photo...this was the special name my girls had for one of their Great Grandmothers..."Little Big Grandma." :o)
Papers: Three Bugs in a Rug "Simple Pleasures" Collection;
Ink: Color Box Fluid Chalk in Olive Pastel;
Punches: Fiskars Squeeze Punches 1" Circle,
1" Square, EK Success Flower Punch;
Bling: Jolee's All That Bling.

Love this Nancy. How about that for coincidence that the colours of the papers match the colours in the photo? Of course that was all very deliberate on your part :) The green background helps to tone down yet show off the papers well. Good colour choices there nicely set off by the circles of flowers and the bling :)
Love and hugs
