This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Layout (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I love this layout which showcases two complementary papers on each half of a square card base with a ribbon covering the join.  I often also pop a bow using the same ribbon at the side of the image panel using a pearl brad to hold it in place, and of course my trios of pearls in the corners.

Ohhhh This is my favourite because it is C&S and so quick to
make and Its my own sketch and its my go to when I am in a rush or if i just want the image to speak for itself....


I love any layout with banners.  This one is so simple, no fuss but still interesting.


Use this kinda layout when using a sentiment as the focal point and because it shows of the pretty papers perfectly.


This is one of my favourite layouts. I use it often and it always looks good, even when rotated.


Any layout with this lovely shaped base is always a favourite for me, and I especially loved adding all the details around the central image circle for this even makes it easy to add a name and age!


I have a few favourite layouts but I especially like the CAS layouts where the main image is the main focal point - to me, your eye is drawn immediately to that image and it really makes a statement!


My favourite layout has lots of layers, I like the interesting detail you can achieve with the dimension. I am in to using Dies at the moment so this is my card, using dies and lots of layers.


I must confess that I like square shape layouts because I think the image really has it's moment there. This one is one of my favourites because the sentiment also really stands out. 


I am really enjoying sketches at the moment and this particular layout is a favourite as it showcases patterned papers beautifully.

I love to see cards that have lots of layers on them...It gives them depth and interest and almost a 3D effect.

My favourite layout is `simple`. Not to many layers because I like to see a lot of the DP I use on a card. Mostly I use 3 or 4 layers, but that also depends on the sketch and the stamp that I am going to use. 

So now it's your turn.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Layout (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
