My project features the Skylark Picture My Life Cards, this is a carryover item from the last Idea Book. I love the colour combinations. I used the Picture My Life cards on a traditional layout. I cut them up, punched them out and stamped on them. 
The first thing I did was spray the page with Lagoon reinker from a spray pen. Then I added all sorts of cards, they are tucked under, cut up, punched out this all creates layers and texture. Topped the whole thing off with a Glitter paper title, some wahshi tape and aqua dots. 
Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Jessica of
