Tear It by Karen

Our designer, Karen said this about her layout : 

MY LO for the tear it up challenge broke my normal paper rules.
I tore into a whole brand new sheet of paper for this and it nearly broke my heart as I intended just to use scraps. Still I'm really pleased with the result as I used both sides of the paper and it looks really pretty.

The Lo is a picture of my daughter eating an ice cream on holiday in the summer. I used some pretty ice cream colours torn into strips and layered up at the side of the photo.

Here are the exact details about our challenge for November: Breakout the scraps of paper and start tearing! Create a layout using those torn papers in small amounts or abundance. You choose! Then, email with  your layout. You may be chosen to be our guest of the month with your participation :) Now it's  YOUR turn to play!
