June Challenge YOUrself - Geometrics

Hi Scrappy friends! I can't believe it is June already and we are almost through half of 2016! I also can't believe that it has been 1 year since we took our amazing Disney Wonder Cruise to Alaska!

I decided to use one of my favorite photos from that trip for this month's Challenge over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog.  Besides including YOU in a photo in your layout - you need to use Geometric Shapes and patterns.   CLICK HERE for details and PRIZE info too!

Here is the challenge graphic:

Here is my Design Team Inspiration Layout:

This photo was a selfie that I took when we boarded the ship in Vancouver, at Canada Place.  We were so blessed to have been able to share this WONDERful trip with our sons and my parents.  The sights we saw, and family time we shared were PRICELESS, and will always have a special place our hearts and memories.

As you can see,  I decided to use the colors that were in the photo for the elements on my layout - White, Red, Blue and Black.  ( and of course a little pop of yellow here and there, to go along with Mickey's shoes!   I also cut 3 different size octagons, out of 3 different pattern papers, added colored mats behind them, and then grouped them in 3's using foam dots and added embellishments too!

Here are some close-ups for you:

I used lots of "STUFF" from my stash  - I even spritzed the white background with some Glimmer Mist!  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will play along with us at The Challenge YOUrself Blog this month.  I can't see what you will create!
