CCG233

Friday, February 22, 2013

We're back with another delicious color palette from Color Combos Galore and just in time for your weekend scrapping to boot.  Woohoo!  I'm hoping there'll be lots of just such around my place, as we're covered in snow, and it's cold out there.  Plus, nobody's going anywhere, until the roads are cleared anyway; and even then, it won't be far.  So, how about that page? 
I started this layout by stamping the vintage, notepad image, in White ink, near the bottom left corner of the ink distressed, Blush Blossom, cardstock, base page.  I then anchored a trio of patterned, paper strips, with brown-threaded, straight, machine stitches, vertically and just right of center.
The star burst bits were cut, from patterned paper, with my Cameo and adhered in a grid design, before adhering my photos, which were framed, vertically, with a Whisper White, cardstock mat, near their right side.  I then tucked a scalloped, journaling card, which reads, There's just nothing like watching you enjoy life.  Live it up, my girl!  I love you!, under the photos bottom right side and a coral, cardstock sticker under its top edge.
The butterflies were created by layering, from bottom to top, a canvas butterfly; die cut, vellum butterfly; and a stamped, in stamped-off, Calypso Coral ink, on Oatmeal cardstock, and hand cut butterfly, one on top of the other, with brown-threaded, back-and-forth, straight, machine stitches.
The "Sweet GIRL" title was created by cutting the prior, from Whisper White cardstock, with my Cameo and alphabet stickers.
A "noted:" tag, labeled, 3.15.12, Andersen Park, Mission, and a bunch of nude, enamel dots complete the look. 
Further inspiration for this layout came from My Mind's Eye's February Sketch Challenge.
And here's this week's Inspiration Board #233 to get you started.
I chose Inspiration Photo 2 to Focus on Photo: About or for a Female, but my little smattering of enamel dots were inspired by Photo 1 to Focus on Accents: Cabochons.  Can't wait to see what you all cook up with this beauty!  Don't forget that you have until the close of the month, on Thursday, February 28, 2013, to add your takes, on any of this month's challenges, including CCG231 and CCG232, as well as this week's palette, tagged CCG233, to our photo gallery.  Thanks, as always, for stopping by; and have a truly blessed, safe, and warm weekend!  Hugs!
