Some of My "Favorite" Things

The "Favorite" paper collection is fun and versatile for creating any project for your favorite things.  In this case, I decided to use "Favorite" for a road trip that I took to Astoria OR that included stopping at a salvage store – what crafter doesn't have that as one of their favorites?  Here's how I created this layout...
I used the Memorable paper as the background for my layout.  I sprayed irRESISTible in Bahama Blue and Dandelion in the two corners opposite of the floral print to add a little color to the layout.
Next I added my layering pieces from (left to right) Unforgettable, Indelible and Noteable.  These layering pieces were cut using the Large Labels die, then edged with Memento Luxe Nautical Blue.  the two printed strips at the bottom are from the Details Sticker sheet.

The main quote block in the middle of the layout is from the Authentic Life Cards deck, which is an awesome deck of mini prints filled with quotes and more from the "Favorite" collection.  Of course there's the picture of the inside of the salvage store we visited, along with stickers and labels from the Details Sticker sheet.

I'm sure that you have many "Favorite" memories that are just waiting to be put into layouts and mini books.  And don't forget about the new Authentic Art Prints from this collection – perfect for decorating!
