Another 8x8 Layout For My "Me" Album

For the A|S October Blog Hop, click here.

So in my first post today for the A|S October Blog Hop, I shared a layout that I started and stopped since i didn't know where I wanted to go with it.  I gave it some more attention today and was able to finish it.  I pulled from some of my other stamp collections. 

As I mentioned in the first post, I was inspired by the colors and stripes in my skirt and made the patterned striped paper using the Mad for Plaids stamp set.  I used Papaya, Orange and Cherry ink.  For the subtle background on the papaya cardstock I stamped an image from Beautiful Botanicals in Papaya ink.  I added some images from Avian Notes in Cherry ink.

The journal circle is made from the dotted line image in Personal Stationary.  The flower is from the same set with a Pearl Sticker added to the center.  I added the date using Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger (PTI).
For the circle tag I stamped the scallop and sentiment from Tag Its (PTI).  I used the rock and roll technique for the frame using Papaya and Orange Ink.  I used my Papaya and Cherry Tombow for the sentiment.  I embellished the image from Avian Notes with Pearl stickers.
