Scrappy Friends June blog challenge

It's time again for a new sketch challenge and to announce my May Winner!
As you all know, my scrap buddies and I get together monthly and give you all an individual challenge and a group bonus challenge for 5 chances to win with just 1 layout!  

My Recipe Challenge: You must use at least 3 patterned papers, twine & 
Here's my layout - I used Fancy Pants 'Be You' collection - perfect colors for Rochelle's Pinspiration.:

I love all the stickers that you get in the Fancy Pants lines - some of these came from the brag book kit as well as the normal collection. I 'popped' the 'be happy' banner up and added the 'two berry creative twine' around the photo. I fully intended stitching around this layout - but felt that I didn't really want any more colors ro detract from the layout - so I left it as the punched holes instead!

Another part of my challenge was to use 3 or more patterned papers, along with washi tape. I added a little of the washi down the side of the layers, but also stuck it onto white paper and then cut it out for the banner. 

I used Brenda's sketch, my recipe and Rochelle's Pinspiration - I didn't quite manage Kristi's technique (sorry!!)
