Adore

I did this sweet layout for CSI Color Stories Inspiration Challenge.  These two little ones belong to my daughter Heather.  She loves these little babies.  They are 1 year old and together they weight less than 10 pounds.

Here is the layout:


Aren't they the cutest little things!

Here is the challenge:




As you can see we needed to do something about pets! Plus we were given the sketch to go by which I did in my own way.

This is how I solved this case file # 227

The Scheme:  Used all 5 colors
The Evidence:  Flowers, Watercolors, Wood, Floral Pattern 
The Testimony:  Adore - Fall in love with as many things as possible, A dream is a wish your heart makes, Embrace beautiful chaos

Behind the large photo I have written:
These two little ones belong to my daughter Heather.  There names are Ruby Rose and Lilly Mae.  They are so cute and sweet and together they weight less than 10 pounds.  She has a total of 6 dogs all are labs except for these two and another small dog.  I really think she loves these two the most.

Please see the close-ups:






Thank you for looking!

Dream

I did this layout for More Than Words Challenge.  I love seeing each month what the challenge may be.  It really causes me to think about which photo and all that I need to complete the layout.

This is my April layout.


We were to use black and white plus one color.  I even turned this photo into a pale blue.

Here is the challenge:

Disney

I did this layout for CSI Color Stories Inspiration.  This was a fun layout but it really took a while for me to think what I wanted to use. 

Please see my layout:


This was the challenge:




The Scheme:  Used all 5 colors
The Evidence:  Stars, Animals, Circles
The Testimony:  Disney - Adventure awaits you, It's the little things that make life big,
Live in the moment

We were to use this sketch and I think I did!

We went to Disney in January because my 8 year old granddaughter was asked to play in the Disney International Tournament.  You had to in invited and she plus 5 other girls on her team went.  While we were there we enjoyed 3 days at Magical Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Universal Studio.  This was a very  fun trip.

Here are the close-ups!

You Are Perfect

I did this sweet layout of this special little kitty for the design team at The Crafty Scrapper.  The papers that I used are from Photo Play.  They are so cute.  However, I am very allergic to cats but I saw this sweet photo and knew I had to use it on this layout.

 
This was a very easy layout to complete.  It is so different from most of my layouts which is very time consuming.  


I used distress ink on the corrugated cardstock and on the little circles which I punched them out.  Then I added sprinkles.



I used these pretty flowers from Prima.  I love them.  I then added some extra flowers.


I cut out the kitty foot print, the cat face with Meow, and the little butterfly.  

I really enjoyed working on this and please go by The Crafty Scrapper and have a look at this layout.  On the back you will find all the items that I used.

Hugs – Ginger
