My FAM - a Lasting Memories challenge

Happy Easter, friends!

Today is the start of a new month, so 4 new challenges are coming your way from Lasting Memories challenges! This month is all about Paper - our real true love.

Today's challenge is to use a new paper technique on your layout. I LOVE this idea!

I have been wanting to try folded quilting circles for a while, so this was a great challenge to do that. I found a fun 6x6 paper pad with double sided designs for our beachy photo and folded my circles into diamonds!

I used watercolor crayons on the background paper, so it shimmers like a mermaid.

I filled in gaps between diamonds with some circles - not folded and accented with these cute puffy stickers!

Take me back to that day on the beach, please! haha

I cut this anchor with my Big Shot & used some Thickers for a simple title. I didn't want to distract from the super busy background going on with a long title.

I had so much fun making this page with a paper technique I've been meaning to try for a while. It was a great way to add interest to my page, and I will definitely be trying it again. It was fairly easy!

 I hope you will go play along with Lasting Memories this month! I can't wait to see what you create.

Happy Easter & thanks for looking!
