Sharing Fall Memories-YMH DT project

Happy Monday fellow Scrappers! 
Its my turn to share a little project with you today that I've been working on as my DT project for
Your Memories Here.
I used simple white cardstock, some Tim Holtz distress inks and a Prima Mask to create an original background to my fall themed layout.. This technique was a first for me, so I'm really pleased with how it came out..
I then used some Autumn themed papers I found in my stash, Prima flowers and Leaves, plus some ribbon and brads..
Here is what I ended up with:
I took several different colors of distress ink and applied them all over the edges of my white cardstock using the ink applicator, then held down the Prima Mask with my hand as I took the same colors of ink and smudged them all over the mask using the ink applicator.. 
Here you can see the white peeking through all of the ink.. 
It really was super easy..

I layered some papers, added a cute photo my daughter when she was a bay-beh..LOL
Then added a big fall colored Prima flower onto the bottom corner, some orange leaves, the Prima Ivy and finally an orange/white colored Prima flower to the top corner of the photo mat.
and last but not least, randomly placed some chipboard letters I found in my stash along the bottom of the Prima flower ivy, using foam tape squares..

and then for the supplies you will need to create a great layout using white cardstock, a  mask and some Inks..

from my own stash I used:
ribbon, brads, papers, stickers, distress tool, circle paper punch's and chipboard letters!!

well scrappers...That does for me for this Monday..Thank you all so much for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to take out your inks to play.. 
I truly don't believe there is a right way or a wrong way to ink up you layouts,  just your own way..LOL
Hope everyone has a wonderfully creative week.

    And the SOUS page...what a GREAT idea that was! I love it, love the unique paper choices I think with the solids for the die cutting. Its perfect! I also always love how you make a freakin' white gel pen add magic to your pages!
