In her beautiful layout, Nightie-Night, Sharon (justbnsharon) showed us how much a blocked background can add to a photo and a layout. Her sweet photo is further enhanced by the colors and details she added behind it. (Don’t you love her lovely color palette?)
Inspired by Sharon’s layout, CT members LeAnne, Jenelle and Merrilee created three layouts with wonderful blocked backgrounds for you to enjoy!
Merrilee(digigrandma) liked Sharon’s use of blocked patterns and stitching and used these for her September chalkboard design. (I love her chalkboard design layouts and always look forward to each month’s addition to the series!)
