I loved the way Bill used the Blank Safety tags to hold his photos and decided immediately that I simply HAD to try my hand at lifting his fabulous layout! Smile Returning to work after enjoying my hazy, lazy Summer Break is weighing heavily on my mind since flipping the calendar to August, so I used my reluctance as the theme for my lift. (sigh)

Like Bill, I seem to have a great deal of difficulty using negative space and had to force myself not to clutter things up by filling every corner of the canvas. I really enjoyed stepping outside of my "cluttered little box" by following Bill's lead here ... thanks Bill!
