Progressive Blog Hop - Full Reveal!

Hopefully by now you have had a chance to hop around all the DT blogs to get a feel for what a progressive blog hop is. We all started with Joanne's fabulous sketch:

Then as you hopped along you found out what all the other designers added to our little mixing pot.
I added striped paper, Jayne added something wet like mist, paint etc, Christa added stitching, Carolyn asked us to distress our layout somehow, Ann asked us to add a quote and Amanda asked us to complete our layouts with 3 buttons.

And here is my final layout:
I distressed with ink and tearing around my edges for Carolyn's addition.
You can also see the red Mr. Huey's mist I splattered around to comply with Jayne's challenge
In this close up you can see the teensy buttons I used to fulfill Amanda's requirement.
Here is my striped paper with the stitching Christa asked for
And lastly here is the quote for Ann's challenge.
This was such a fun and challenging way to complete a layout!
I used Simple Stories for most of this layout, the background
paper is from the Basic Grey 'Hipster' collection.
I hope you enjoyed the TSF Hop and get a chance to play along!

The hop began with Joanne's sketch:

So I took Joanne's sketch and added STRIPED paper. I started my layout with some basic elements to get a feel for how I would interpret the sketch. Of course I had to use the new Simple Stories "24/7" collection for this challenge!

Now you can head on over to Jayne's blog and see what fabulous element she has added to the sketch and striped paper.

Here is a list of all the Blogs in order:
