Using stamps on my layout

I'm taking a workshop at Two Peas in a Bucket called 'Mix it Up' with Amy Tan. One of the layouts presented in the class uses random stamps on a sheet of cardstock as the main design element of the page. So that's where I started with my layout, I stamped a bunch of images on an area of my layout and then added patterned papers and a few stickers and buttons. I love how it turned out and plan to do similar things with my stamps on future layouts! 

I need to add the journaling, but this is my daughter pretending to take my picture - "Click" 

Some close ups:

Patterned papers: Crate Paper
Buttons: Crate Paper
Stickers: Crate Paper
Diecut tags: American Crafts
Twine: May Arts
Title: American Crafts
Ink: Memento
Stamps: Unity, Fancy Pants, Sweet Stamp Shop, Avocado Arts, Studio Calico, Making Memories

I am entering this layout in three challenges.
1.) Kristi B's blog challenge to use "Something that Flies" on a layout
2.) Trendy Twine's April challenge to use flowers, the color yellow, stamped images/sentiments and trendy twine. (ok, I don't own any Trendy Twine, so used some jute twine instead)
 3.) Scrap Your Story's Springtime challenge - I used lots of springtime stamps, and flower and butterfly buttons.

Thanks for stopping by!
