Use your favorite paper maker and give the reasons you love them
This was a hard one for me. I love so many different makers for different reasons. Time and time again I come back to Crate Paper as on of my faves though. They have such fun lines, with awesome embellishments, that can be used in so many ways. I like the slightly distressed look that is never too cutesy. I like rugged over cute. Fits my lifestyle more.
For this layout I turned to the Story Teller line that I just love! There are so many ways to use it for layouts of "doing" and "going" We do a lot of that. I used the photos of John and his friend that they took on a bike trip over to the coast. It's over 60 miles there and passes over the Coast Range. They had a great time and stopped to snap these picks at the end of their route. They took John's truck back home that we had left the night before.
I also used Ashley Horton's October Sketch It Out Sketch.
