Eric's 5th

My production speed of layouts has slowed down a bit due to my summer work schedule.  Off to work by 7 and not home till 4.  Going to try and squeeze in some crafty time in the evenings but the weather is nice and the pool is calling.  Anyway here's a combo challenge that I did using the sketch over at Stuck and the 5-4-3-2-1 challenge at use your stuff
here's the sketch
I used one less photo as the challenge at Use your stuff only calls for 3. 
 Got to use larger squares to so defiantly a good move to go with less
For Use your stuff:
5 patterns,  4 colors, 3 photos, 2 (at least) embellishments and 1 washi tape.

For my layout I used 5 pattern papers which are: the patterned base of yellow free hand gingham
orange paper with green dots, Green paper with darker green open spots, black with white polka dots and a light green with green an orange hash marks(on the one leaf in the cluster of three)
My 4 colors are:Yellow, orange, green and black
I used 3 photos
My 2 embellishments are the felt and button flowers ( did use three of them but they are all the same size and style) and the black sparkle ribbon
1 washi tape which is the black and whit stripe
Super fun challenges and used up some more of my stash.  Loving it
