Fangs for the Memories

Boy was I envious of other challenge entrants when I saw the photos they had used. I found it very difficult to find a suitable photo for this one. This shot was taken on a crazy trip with workmates to Melbourne in July 2006. We found ourselves at Dracular's one night and were all a bit shell-shocked after the show. We had a great time and enjoyed each other's company immensely, hence the title "FANGS for the Memories". The circle of twine represents the circle of friendship we have all shared for many years. 

My background stamping was done to reflect the diamond pattern in the paper used, with a bit of sparkle added using Viva Decor 3-D stamp paint.

The word FANGS was die-cut from the corrugated card used in the layout and then Glossy Accents was added. I used different fonts for the other words in the title to add interest and to repeat the main colours in the layout.
I really enjoy challenging myself to use the ARTastic criteria but I also get heaps of inspiration (not to mention green-eyed envy) from the many different takes on the challenge others have. Hope you enjoy my layout.Congratulations to everyone who participates. I think your work is wonderful!!
