I love layers. I don't generally go to crazy with the layers but I do really like the look. I created this look quickly I am pleased with the way it turned out. I have so much patterned paper that I feel that I really need to use. Despite the fact that I purge on a regular basis....I still have too much. I admit that it is hard for me to part with some of it, I have attachment issues:). Creating layouts with layers is a great way to use that paper!
