Sometimes a layout will get put aside for a variety of reasons, but sometimes that works out to my advantage and I go in a different direction that I like even better. as in this case. I dropped the idea of banner mats, used more pattern papers and some Papertrey Ink vellum (distressed with a scissor on the right side). And fussy cut some arrows from Papertrey Ink's Get to the Point set. Glossy Accents dots over the letter stickers.
Until recently this was as far as I had gotten since I placed all the pieces together on August 25, 2012 to mull it over while I worked on something else.
