You & Me...Fantabulous! / My Scraps & More

Hey there, friends!  The layout I'm sharing today is one I created for a Free For All Friday Challenge at My Scraps and More a few weeks ago. The rules are to use at least five bar code strips at the bottom of patterned papers, use a pre-made title on a cut-apart piece or embellishment and add some thread.  I pulled out some of the Shimelle collection that I've been hoarding :)  

I really love the patterns on the paper strips in this line.  They made for really easy layering behind the photo.  I added a bit of washi tape from my stash...I love that film strip tape.  It's my favorite!  It was perfect for those little letters.

Using the bar code strips is really fun and easy because you don't have to really measure.  You just slice them off and tear them....easy!  Plus you get lots of small bits of color and patterns.

You know me....I had to add some gesso, modeling paste and watercolor.  I didn't go overboard here...just a bit to add some interest down at the bottom.

One more shot of the top...I really LOVE these colors and those little black letter stickers!  And I even got my machine stitching straight...haha!  

If this inspires you to use those bar code strips, be sure to head on over to our forums and play along with the challenge!  Who knows....you just might win a prize!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
