Lasting Memories Black Background

I love working with black paper. It adds such a simple elegance or just a solid no nonsense touch to a layout. Needless to say I was thrilled when the challenge for this week at Lasting Memories is to use a black background.

And I decided that not only did I want to use a black background but I also wanted to do a CAS Layout. I don't know about you, but I have a tendency to lean towards the bulky embellishments and that can cause a problem when trying to put too many of them in album.

This picture was taken in Nashville, Indiana. It's a small artistic Colony that is well worth the visit!
