Happy Friday!!! It's yet another gloomy day here in sunshiney Florida!!! It's been raining for three days and I'm hoping it will let up sometime soon!!! Anyway, I wanted to share a few things with you that I was able to finish this week :-)
The first is this week's challenge #6 over at Scrap Your Story!!! The challenge is to create a layout with the "Spring" theme in mind. You can use flowers, spring colors, easter, etc. GET CREATIVE!!! Of course, I myself went with the traditional Easter photos from this year!!! These were taken at my dad's on Sunday afternoon with the girls in their ever so beautiful atire!!
I also used Sketch #30 from Sketch N scrap, and combined this with numerous other challenges that I will list below! So, here is the sketch to work with:
And here is my layout: I pretty much stayed true to the sketch with only a few variations! I didn't have any sunlight to photograph it so I used my DSLR camera in hopes of a better photo. I will upload a better one when the sun comes out to play!
Aren't these girls just precious?!?!? Yes, that would be me with my amazing pose for the camera in the top left... I am officially a goof ball!!! I have had sooooooo much fun playing with the Heidi Swapp "Sugar Chic" paper collection!!!!! The papers are absolutely AMAZING and one of my fav collections to work with so far!!! I also have fun playing with canvas, which I was able to sneak in on the bottom right. I inked it to match the colors of the page, then stamped it and added "stitching" rub-ons to the edges.
I used various flowers, grungeboard swirls (which I embossed white and placed inside the flower cluster), Thickers, and chipboard letters which were also heat embossed to the colors I wanted. I am very pleased with this entire layout and cannot wait to actually photograph it in the sun for a better view at the wonderful colors!!!!
Other challenges for this layout:
