Inspiration from The Closet. . . .

Just not my closet! For my project this week, I decided to go a little different route with the clothing inspiration and use an article of clothing in the pictures I wanted to scrap as inspiration for my page.

I wanted to scrap my son's 4 year old portraits and so I took the shirt that he was wearing and scanned it on my scanner, printing out my own designer paper to use on my layout. This saved me a ton of time searching through my stash looking for just the right colors to match the pictures-- the paper was already perfect!

For other papers I did stick to the main colors in the plaid print and also added some buttons that look just like the ones on his shirt.

Supplies used:

Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock
My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy True Blue papers (orange)
Bo Bunny Ad Lib papers (Green lined and banner circles)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink-- Faded Jeans
Miscellaneous buttons
Divine Twine Grey
Metal Charm
Glue Dots

I hope you will all take the Inspiration from Your Closet Challenge and show us what you come up with . Enter your project in our current Beary Sweet Challenge by July 31 11:59 EST for you chance to win!
