Dream A Little Dream

I'm a bit behind here, there's a few projects that I need to share, but for now, I'm just going to share my latest layout.

As I was scouring Pinterest for anything and everything, I came across this layout. Hello, inspiration! I was also inspired by my newly acquired Carta Bella goodies- from the Alphabet Junction collection. I wanted to pick up the blue and green in the girls' dinghy, and the floral paper fit the bill. (You will be able to find my layout here.)

I desperately wanted to use a coral colored patterned paper, but didn't have anything that matched that description, so once again turned to my new Carta Bella goodies, and pulled out another sheet of patterned paper.

After that, everything fell into place beautifully, until I began working on the title. Orange just didn't work with the color scheme, so how was I going to weave that into my layout? With some ribbon, of course! I searched my ribbon drawer for something that would compliment the chipboard title sticker, and I stumbled upon my American Crafts ribbons. Perfect!!!

The intention behind the colors I chose, other than to incorporate the blue and green theme into my layout, was to play up the sleepy/dreamy aspect of the photos. The motion of the waves, and being pulled through the water in their dinghy nearly put the girls to sleep. They've always loved water; they love it enough to be put to sleep by it! Its also where the chipboard title sticker comes into play, as well.

Thanks for dropping by. I appreciate the time you've spent with me tonight!

Sketch #30

Sketch #30 is up at Miracles' Momma Designs, which means I have another layout to share with you, too!

And, just a reminder, I haven't added more storage to my blog yet, so head over to my online gallery to have a little look see at the project I created (and others too)!

I hadn't sat down to scrap in quite a while, and my first attempt at it in the New Year was completing sketch #30 for Heather. I'm still working away on August long photos, and this layout was no exception. I thought I'd change the focus a bit, and create a layout about the girls first best friend- their cousin. They often get to see her if they're having sleep overs with their grandma- Chloe is usually there, too. They get so excited at the opportunity to see her! It warms my heart that they love their cousin so much.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years, and wishing you all the best in 2013!
