I have to admit that this paper Packet…Fanfare… was not my favorite. In fact I really did not care for it at all. But, I bought it anyways to see if I can make some layouts with it. And it was not even a challenge at all. Once I pulled it out of the package and seen it in person and started working with it things just went together quickly. I really like this layout. This is a Magic layout…Hocus Pocus. Nice, Clean and simple. I hope you like it too!

Supplies used are from Close To My Heart
Magic - Hocus Pocus
Colors are White daisy, Cranberry, Pacifica, Sky, and Sunny Yellow.
