Gossamer Blue

Hello friends! I recently joined Gossamer Blue kit club, and I have to say I am so glad I rejoined! Loving the February kit so far, and I have my first layout to share with you today.

My middle daughter recently lost her first tooth, and it would be an understatement to say that she was excited! I thought the fun colors and embellishments in this kit would be perfect to document this moment!

I loved the custom wood veneer titles, and thought this one went great to cluster in with my title.

I also had so much fun using the office themed embellishments on this layout! The ended up working perfectly, and I am so in love with the finished layout!

Stay tuned for some more layouts using the Gossamer Blue February kit...my hopes are to kill this one just in time for the March kits to get here. Loving the sneaks so far!!

I'm linking this layout up to the current issue at Paper Issues " Hip to be Square". Nothing beats a grid layout, and this challenge helped to inspire that.

Have a good one, and take time to create something you love!!

Picture Perfect

Today I have a new layout to share with you using up some bits and pieces from my stash. I decided its past time to keep holding on to all those items I just "had to have" and start using them!

I wanted to keep this layout bright and fun, my daughter had been so excited about the camera she had got for Christmas, that she wanted to take a picture of me...taking a picture of her! lol.

For the background, I used this horizontal striped paper from Simple Stories, but I wanted to liven it up a bit, by layering a transparency from Crate Paper over it, I was able to bring in some more of that bright pink, but still let the stripes shine through. This layout started out all pink, black, and white, but I just wasn't feeling it, so I layered in that rainbow heart paper from Bella Blvb, and then was able to build off of those colors with some of my embellishments!

Hoping to have some more layouts to share soon, have many in the works! In the meantime, keep creating projects you love!! :)
