The Everything ABC Blog Hop - Letter P

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter P.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their P element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

My letter P's are Purple, Polka Dot, and Paisley!  I found this layout on Pinterest and it inspired me to do my layout!  Scrap our Stash had a challenge to use a Selfie and a frame from your stash. 4 Crafty Chicks had a challenge to use a picture as your inspiration and I used the stripes, paisley and some of the colors. 

So the combo of all these thoughts and challenges resulted in using Laughing Lola paper, and Framed In Top Coats and a few bling from the Laughing Lola Card Workshop on the Go, all of which are retired. A Photo Mat cut on the Cricut with the Art Booking Cartridge mats the frame and the picture, to make the frame pop!  I used the PhotoMat 1 on letter a cut at 7.5 and trimmed a little and rounded the corners that were trimmed.

The last thing I did was cut a few paisleys from the patterned paper and use 3-D foam tape to give the page dimension!  

I had a lot of fun challenging myself to get outside my normal for this layout!  What have you done lately to challenge yourself creatively!?
