New Layout and Colorful Creations Challenge!

Happy Saturday!!!! Hope everyone is doing well.  Welcome to JULY!!!  I have here my first Challenge Layout for the month of July for the team I design on Colorful Creations!  We have a nice color combo challenge going on! Go on over and check it out. We have monthly prizes and can't wait to see you visit us!

Let me tell you a little bit about this layout.  I got some help from my snickerdoodle on this one.  We were having mommy and daughter time and she wanted to help me create a layout.  I had been trying to get them to scrapbook for years and it was exciting to see her all in. She had a hand and everything this layout came to be. Down from our string on our button balloons, from the distressed ink we rolled around on the background of the paper, how we positioned our leaves, butterflies, and pearls. I am so proud of here and she was my guest designer on my layout this month.  She is also the one in the photo. I think I have a scrapper on my hands!

My youngest buried herself and in the sand and was enjoying the sun.  She looked like a beached Mermaid.  This layout definitely screams Summer to me!!!

We make a great TEAM!  I took me a while to finish this layout mostly because he made me mad a few times while creating this layout LOL but I did finish it and it turned out great I think!  I used some of everything and that fancy paper clip page charm tassle is what I created and things I am currently selling in my Etsy Shop.  I am actually sponsoring this months challenge on Picture This.

Not So Picture Perfect Challenge! ( Picture This)

Happy Monday!  I am excited that we have a brand new challenge for you this month on Picture This. This time around we are creating No So Picture Perfect layouts. You know those photo's that are not so good.  Well I choose this photo because although I love the two ladies that are in it. My daughter and myself The lighting kinda of messed this one up. It was really sunny out even though it was still a little chilly out. So if I had not had this challenge I would never had scrapped this photo.  Also there was too much in the background which I did get to cover a little with the butterfly embellishment.  I also used papers from different brands and used some of my favorite things.

I also got to use my handmade page charms that I have been making to put in my etsy shop.  The little doohickey to the left with the beads and lace.  I attached it to a colored paperclip.  Also did some paper layering , used my cricuit and twine.  I had fun with this one.  Go on over to Picture This where you can see more inspiration to use those not so good photo's and make great layouts with them.  They are still memories right? So go on over and be inspired to scrap those "Not So Picture Perfect Photos.  See you over there!!!!!
