This challenge was to use a gate, which is not something I have ever used before. Thank god for pals who own every Cricut Cartridge known to man---I borrowed a friend's Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge and cut this gate out. I'll be honest, I still didn't know how to use it.
Then I took my daughter's Brownie troop on a field trip to Boldt Castle, a gorgeous island castle on the St. Lawrence River...then I knew exactly how to use it.
I am doing my own version of project life this summer in a SNAP! binder, so this layout is rather small.
I used lots of Glitz goodies on this page---the gate and the circle overlay fancied it up a bit, even though she is wearing a t-shirt!
I love this little banner, which I dangled from the gate.
One more closeup of my layering, including a tiny black skeleton key, which fits with the age of the castle for sure.
What a fun trip! I am so glad I was able to document it!

Have a lovely weekend!
