Bust Out Those Stencils & Templates!

It's my day to issue a challenge at Memorable Seasons! And I was assigned the "tool challenge" for this month.

We all have them - stencils, templates, masks - all these great designs to help us add a little flair to our layouts. So my challenge to you is to dust off one of these tools - preferably one you haven't used in awhile (or ever) - and put it to good use. 

I pulled out a chevron Crafter's Workshop template that I've had for months and had yet to use. I also pulled out my super old Chatterbox Doodle Genies that I haven't used in years...
 ... and decided to use them both on my layout. I used the chevron template and some silver Mr. Huey's mist on my background cardstock and then used the Chatterbox doodling templates and black journaling pens to create some fun whimsical swirls and hearts! Note I also used my February Design Team kit featuring Fancy Pants Love Note collection, available in the Memorable Seasons store!
(Supplies: Fancy Pants Love Note papers and die-cut banner; Bazzill cardstock; unknown chipboard alphas and epoxy heart sticker; Pink Paislee resist heart chipboard; Making Memories flocking kit; Kaiser Craft rhinestones; Studio Calico Mr Huey’s mists; Crafter’s Workshop and Chatterbox templates; Sakura and Zig Writer pens; EK Success heart punch.)
So, here is my challenge to you...create a layout using at least one template, stencil or mask. Brownie points if you use two of them in two different ways like I did! To be eligible for the prize drawing, your layout must be new and must be posted in the Memorable Seasons gallery and linked to the appropriate challenge thread on the forum by February 28th. Have fun!
