True Beauty and One Fine Day

Sharing with you my latest layout. This is inspired by a challenge at Method Playground which required use of monochromatic colors. This was quick to do, I just looked for my reddish patterned papers, and it was done! Used Basic Grey Boxer and Offbeat pps. Maybe I'll make a yellow layout next. LOL!

Just a few close-ups:
I used glass beads as flower centers, adhered them using glossy accents. This was fun!

I painted the chipboard letters with black paint then dabbed red paint on top. Applied glossy acccents as a finishing touch.

I forgot to post this next layout, which is my last as part of the DT of Creative Scrappers. I really enjoyed being part of the design team and working with the awesome sketches. It is based on sketch # 44 for the month of March.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my layout using pics from our trip to HK Disneyland. I used papers mostly from the Offbeat line.

Journaling: There's nothing else on my mind right now except to have lots of fun with you.

Some close-ups:

Have a scrappy weekend!
