Whistlin Dixie Bold and Bright Teen Layout

Good morning Quick Quotes readers!  Alicia with you today still chugging along on my family vacation album. Today I have a layout with the vibrant Whistlin Dixie collection which are now my favorite papers for teenage layouts.

My favorite way to make the most of a beautiful sheet of paper is to fussy cut the pretty parts.  Which is exactly what I did here with this piece of Whistlin Dixie 103 paper.  The flourish design is so bright and beautiful just like my niece!  I also cut out strips from Whistlin Dixie 100 paper.  I love papers that you can cut up for embellishments.  I had the most fun cutting various flowers and layering them for this bold and bright teen layout.  Of course, I inked all the edges and crumpled them a bit for a distressed look.  My new favorite chalking ink is Coal Miner, it looks great with every thing! I finished off the flowers with some bling.

I had so much fun making the flowers I made a card with the scraps.  It doesn't look like a card from scraps at all!  I used Kiwi Lane templates to make the twist layer.  It turned out to be such a bold and bright card but balanced with the blacks and greys from 49 Shades of Grey.
