Jillibean Soup | 12...

Have you ever noticed that every now and then Jillibean Soup offer some awesome free cutfiles?? This layout was created with our designer challenge in mind. And this fun freebie resulted in some stunning creations over at the Jillibean Soup blog.
I decided to use the negative space from the cutfile to share the story of my son's twelfth birthday.
products used: cs - American Crafts; pp - Jillibean Soup (Cold Avocado Soup); alphas - Jillibean Soup Alphabeans (mushroom gray); other - Jillibean Soup: wood veneer, soup labels, coordinating label stickers; tools - date stamp, typewriter.
While I had this file open in my silhouette program, I dragged some of the pie pieces out from the circle shape. I wanted to exaggerate the slices to resemble pieces of cake.
I backed each negative shape with a coordinating patterned paper and layered my photo on top. My journaling was typed directly onto the back ground cardstock and the wood veneers were inked before being attached to my page.
Thanks again for joining me here today. I hope you will come back tomorrow to see some more Jillibean Soup love!!

This is really stunning & a great way to showcase pps that all blend and match. VERY clever making it more like a cake, too:):)
