Layouts for the day :D

So I got 2 two-page layouts done today, yay! This is the first one, done for Jena's #6 Inspiration Challenge.


Colors : Hydrangea, Key Lime, Holiday Red, Orchard Bouquet, White & Black

Stamps : Hodge Podge Alpha, Building Blocks Alpha, Serendipity, Spot On Backgrounds, Sweet Love

Accents : Flower Chipboard Negatives, Bigger Brads

This is a pretty simple layout. I took inspiration from the colors in the invitation Jena had as the inspiration piece, and the squares that she used in her example paper that she stamped. A little bit of doodling on there as well ^_~


And my first layout using the new Boomdiada papers... or paper, lol.


I used just the one sheet. I wanted to keep with the orange theme to match the girls' shirts. There was the red monochromatic paper, but it just didn't seem to fit right. I used Cottage floral, Serendipity, Friendship Wordpuzzle, Building Blocks alpha, and Modge Podge alpha stamp sets. Lots of fun embellies mostly from the garden green and autumn terracota accessories packs. Buttons aren't ours, I still need to get the CTMH winter ones. This is one of my favorite layouts. I LOVE these flowers and the dimension is so fun. I also used my Reflections for these two pages and let me tell you the longest part of making these pages was just trying to figure out which layouts to use. I used the Mainframe - quarter circle and Quartet - Offset. There must be some special trick that I don't know on how to use this book because I was having a really hard time and I know it shouldn't have been that difficult for me, lol. The results were worth all the trouble though ^_~.

I love the colors you use in both LOs, but I think the flowers in the second one really caught my eye. I love seeing pics of your adorable little girls (just 1 teenage boy in my house -- still wish I had tried for another -- a little girl would have been a nice addition to our family). Ah well . . . one and done here :) I stopped by to also thank you for the beautiful birthday card with the bubbly bella LOL Love your colors adn the cb bg you used.
