Oh, boy!

I love embossing! 
Whether it's using impression plates, heat embossing or using embossing paste 
-- they're all fun & effective techniques!

However, I have to admit, that while I emboss on my cards often, 
I don't seem to do it very much on my layouts.

So, naturally, I thought that this would be a great challenge for this month's 
Pages With Papertrey: 
 add texture to your layout with embossing.

For my layout, I decided to add embossing by using my PTI Centre Stage cover plate as a mask
and some white embossing powder (which I love how it looks on cream!)

I used some Crate Paper (The Pier) patterned papers & chipboard accents.
Here's a close up of the embossing:

For my title, I used my PTI Bookprint alphabet dies with a sheet of Crate patterned paper -- 
I love how this turned out!

The "This is the life" sentiment is a PTI stamp from Fabulous Frames.

If you create a layout for the challenge, please link it either here in the comments 

I'm also submitting this layout for the Crate Paper blog challenge: Boys Rule.

Thanks for looking!
