I wanted my layout to be simple, but still 2 pages and when I saw this Page Map by Becky Fleck I knew what I wanted to do with the photos and this wonderful paper. I selected my 3 favorite photos and several sheets of the paper (plus one piece from my new K & Company stack).
I cut strips of the paper to form the patchwork area next to one photo. I am a little afraid of stitching still so I added some flat stick on gems to the middle edges and my ribbon points instead. I was not sure what I wanted for the bottom corner area of the page map but I wanted the different papers on both pages so I made a 1 inch strip using all of them and added it to both pages.
