For "Like Mother, Like Daughter", I used a sketch from Sketch Support. I had to change the photo orientation to fit my pictures. This was also for the 1 Hour Challenge on Club CK, to use fabric on your lo. I just hand pleated the brown fabric and stapled as I went along. Once I had a long enough piece, I adhered it to the lo and used the hot pink trim to cover the staples.

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble!!
The words Toil and Trouble, greatly describe how I normally feel while working on or completing a double-page layout. Recently, I've done two double-pages that I've been very happy with...which is highly unusual. :) The first, "Can You Hear Me Now" was pretty intimindating, because I did not use a sketch. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted the page to look like, so I was pretty intimidated about getting it from my imagination onto the paper. I think using the Tim Holtz grungeboard numbers and the talk bubbles from the American Crafts Everyday pack really helped in giving me direction. I also knew I wanted a "radio tower", so I used the Eiffel Tower from a pack of Dazzles to create the look. My favorite part of the lo is actually the title. I enjoyed using 3 different looks. I didn't have the exact tiny type that I need, so I printed "can u" from Microsoft Publisher and cut it out. "Hear Me" was also done in Publisher to mimic the numbers on a cell phone. Instead of printing on cardstock, I printed it on glossy photo paper, printed, and cut. The word "now" is done with corrugated alphas from Jillibean Soup.
