Picking the paper

I love being a part of a Design Team. I like seeing things before they are released to the public and helping to promote my favorite brands. But, most of all, I love the challenge.

I love being given products that I wouldn’t normally buy and making them work. Usually when I finish, those papers I would have never purchased become some of my favorite layouts in my albums.

So, when Scrap Tales gave me some Halloween paper by Creative Imaginations, I knew I had my work cut out for me. I don’t like Halloween, so I don’t have anything to do with it and, therefore, have no photos.

But, when I saw this paper, I didn’t really think “Halloween.” I thought “New Orleans Garden.”

Granted, I don’t have any photos of New Orleans, with or without a garden, but I do have some wonderful photos I took last spring of my mom’s garden. Here’s what I came up with:

That gate was begging to be opened, so open it I did:

I cut the title out of extra photos (I also discovered that those with small flowers work better) using the Garden font from QuicKutz (Lifestyle Crafts).

Here’s the facing page on coordinating paper:
