It is a gorgeous sunny Sunday here. You can really tell that summer is just around the corner. Taylor keeps asking for the paddling pool – so I have to be careful what I say. If I say it is quite warm or hot today she asks if it is Summer. Because of course I told her she couldn’t go swimming in the paddling pool until summertime!
Yesterday I did a layout just because I wanted to use up some product (will share that later) but it got me inspired to play along with the latest CSI challenge. The colour scheme was just perfect with I think February’s CMK kit.
The challenge comes with a colour scheme you must use plus two evidence items: I’ve used hearts, ribbon, and a bit of distressing, plus one item from the testimony section. I’ve journalled on a library card and then tucked in under my layers. I am being super good at using my typewriter now I have moved it right to my scrap desk!
I got my inspiration from the gorgeous head-piece Aimee is wearing and the soft colour palate was just perfect for a baby photo. First, I fussy cut out the hearts from a sheet of Pink Paislee patterned paper and then I’ve added lots of layering with my patterned papers – mostly left over pieces and then got out my stash of Prima and D-lish Scraps flowers. My journalling has been done on two cards from my Dear Lizzy PL kit. I think I am definitely going to be adding these 3×4 inch cards to my layouts a LOT. Close ups –
