Scrapbooksteals Iolite 5

A very fine Monday everyone!  Today I'm here to share my interpretation on the Iolite 5 Mid-Week Mojo sketch over at Scrapbooksteals.  The Mid-Week Mojo is a weekly sketch you can create to be entered to win some free scrappy goodies!  If you are interested in joining in and learning more, head over to the Scrapbooksteals blog to get details!

I recently decided that I'm going to scrap 8.5x11 for awhile.  I've been feeling a little bit in a rut and have enjoyed doing 8.5x11 pages and decided that I would give them a go for awhile along with my 12x12 Project Life spreads.

I used my Studio Calico Blue Note kit for this layout and I am just so thrilled with the colors on this page.  They just worked.

I used multiple labels for my journaling and did some layering around my photo for a touch of extra interest.

These diamonds came pre-cut in the kit and are made of a super thick paper and they took being watercolored with gelatos really well.  I used them to replace a strip of paper that was in the original sketch.  

I'm really pleased with this layout and my decision to try 8.5x11 scrapbooking for awhile.  I think it will re-invigorate me and get me motivated to do some more scrapping!
