Take me back to this place

Hello Friends, check this out...

Magenta , Canadian made, has a great team of designer's creating designs with quality products.  Please visit Magenta  and see the collections that they carry.

This month's Magenta April challenge features stitching and/or fussy cutting. Check out the lovely Magenta paper collection called  Emotions , Energy Memor -236 double sided papers.  Here in my layout titled Costa Rica, I have used the yellow side and the other red jewel toned side of the pattern paper.   

 My  bitty  blossoms  and the die punched border in the top right corner feature the red jewel tone side of this Magenta pattern paper sheet in the above photo.

See in the above photo how lovely the fussy cutting flowers truly showcase the pattern of the Magenta design.

In my photo below, you can see my background red paper is by Core'dinations which I inked to reveal the de-bossed side of the paper.  My blue title and green leaves  have been sanded Core'dinations as well....  Faintly you can see score lines in the yellow pattern paper.

Love the result of the Magenta color tones on this double sided paper along with the Core'dinations  as they give the continuous mountainous texture feel to my layout.  Do you not just love papers that harmonize with your photo's so well......

Takes me back to this luscious place, lets go back now!!!  wink wink

Canadian Scrapbooker has an April Sketchy Sketch challenge on their website, this is where I have gotten my inspiration for this layout.   Check out Canadian Scrapbooker for lots of inspiration and fun!!!
