I spied this ombre woodgrain in my stash and was itching to use it! It's from the Maggie Holmes Open Book collection. It had been sitting in my paper pile for awhile, and inspiration struck to finally use it!
I kept this layout pretty simple. I chose a photo and added lots of layers. That's really it! I just kept adding and building until I was happy with the final result. I was lucky enough to find extra Open Book embellishments at Tuesday Morning, so I had lots to spare! I used some thickers in my stash for the title. I love the background paper, and it always feels good to use up some stash :)
