Ella's Publishing Boot Camp's Day #1, Drill #2 (night drill): Use pattern paper. I chose a bold pattern, a geometric pattern and solid. The funny thing is I really thought I was choosing a bold statement pattern and adding coordinating patters to complement it. The drill was to focus on how to use pattern papers, how to mix and match pattern papers. I also focused on one of last week's LOAD challenges, use a bad photo. These photos were taken last year on my blackberry. The lighting was bad and the chef's movements were fast! Hence the not-so-good photos. I also included one of the embossed accordian fold flowers from Jennifer McGuire's Inspiration class. Walker had a blast during his first trip to the Hibachi Grill! I loved seeing his face light up when the chef gave us an extraordinary display of dexterity. PLUS, I really liked using all these pink papers on this layout to capture the pink tint in the pictures. I don't normally get to use pink on LOs with Walker. The pictures are from summer 2010.
