Take a LEAP with the Lipstick Chicks at the XOXO blog

Today the chicks at the XOXO Blog have decided to challenge and inspire you to design your own LEAP layouts. This February is a Leap Year, a mathematical calendar alteration that means there are 29 days instead of February!

For this challenge I found a photo of Adriane leaping off a tree stump at a local park into the leaves. The Momenta Great Outdoors line is perfect for this design.
The wood grain is super trendy right now and this paper actually feels a bit like vinyl! The texture is very wood-like! Such cool texture. I splattered some white paint for visual interest and used to reversed pennant shapes. The fussy cut leaves and the yellow font embellished the design just to my liking. 

I hope you'll visit the XOXO blog and be challenged by their mid month LEAP challenge. Check out what my fellow designers have accomplished too!
Until next time, keep doing what you love to do,


  1. The paint splatters add a cool touch and I like the reverse pennants. Great rustic feel!

  2. Great pictures and I love the page, the paint adds to all the movement and love the way the leaves seem to explode out the picture...beautiful stitching too :)
