I love this color combo. This would be a great birthday present to win, since today is my birthday :)


So today we have layers and layers from Mary Pat Siehl.

First here is a little bit about Mary Pat:

My name is Mary Pat Siehl.  I am an avid paper crafter,  stamper, and card maker. I have been paper crafting for over 12 years.  It truly is a passion of mine.  I would descirbe my style as clean and simple, but this is not to say my style is boring.  I love to layer my papers and add all types of embellishments.  I love adding different textures to my layouts.   I am married to a wonderful man who totally supports my addiction to paper crafting. I have 2 boys  who keep me totally on the run and having fun. I am a high school teacher by day,  and I am in  my 24th year of teaching.  I live in beautiful Springboro, Ohio.  If I am not scrapping I am either hanging out with my 3 favorite guys or on the tennis courts.

Now Mary Pat’s layout..for more design inspiration make sure you check out her blog HERE!

I loved this idea of a bio layout.  I rarely make pages about myself.  I love using negative space so I used my Silhouette and cut out the thought bubbles.  I then backed them with sanded core’dinations cardstock.  I then made a border by scoring the outer edges and lightly sanded it.  I then lightly sanded the base cardstock to give it a slightly distressed feel.  Next, I cut out my title and once again lightly sanded it and then added my photo.  I then added some of my favorite embellishments at the moment.
