More Moss Please!

**Click HERE for Halloween Give Away**

Well you guys.... here's more vacation pics.
Paper Vineyard challenged the DT to use the new Grapevine Designs cutouts exclusive to Paper Vineyard to create a project.  We were asked which state we wanted cut out (don't you just love it when you can have custom cuts done?) and I chose Washington.  This was kind of perfect timing since Forks, Washington alone has three pages in my vacation album.  Now, to tell you the truth, I am not yet scrapping the Washington leg of our vacation, but to fulfill this challenge, I figured it was worth jumping around a bit.  And hey, it's one less page I now have to get done.... this one turned out better than I could have imagined!!!

So featured in the pic above is the "Twilighty" forest in Washington.  Full on with the mossy trees and the dense fog.... I'm transported to the beloved story that brought me here in the first place.  HOW COULD I NOT DEVOTE A PAGE TO IT???  LOL!  Anyway, I used American Craft Campy Trails Box Park Forest paper for the background, Grapevine Designs "Washington" as a stencil for my "mossy" title, Tim Holtz Distress paper in Forest Moss (ironically) for my picture mats, grunge paper for the faux leather embellishments on the pictures and HomePro nailheads.... uh, everywhere!!!  This layout turned out WONDERFULLY.... way better than I expected!!  Be sure to swing by Paper Vineyard's blog and check out what the rest of the design team created!!!

*** A special thank you to my friend Dana for once again, loaning me her Stampin Up Word Window Punch.  Turns out it was the perfect tool to create the faux leather handles!***

Love how it looks like a tree line where you stenciled the state. And how brilliant to use it 2 ways. Bang for your buck for sure!
