Playing with colors...

I love color combo challenges coz it lets me think outside the box. Here's the color combo for the this week at Design Dollies:

Definitely not my usual colors but I love it! Here's the card I made:

I encourage you to try this out! Link up your layouts HERE! C'mon, I know you can do it! Deadline is on Nov 28, 12 midnight EST.

Ohhh, and here's another color combo that I worked with. It is based on Palette #31 over at The Color Room. Pink and Green is actually one of my faves!

Here's my layout...its about my daughter Ally at the age of 4. I included in the journaling her weight and height, her faves, and some of her idiosyncrasies too! I'm sure she'll enjoy reading it when she's older.

And here are some details:

Thanks for your time!!!!

Being Silly!

Are you up for a bit of silliness? That's the elements challenge for the Design Dollies this week. Oh, but there's a twist: you need to add some buttons. I'm sure you have a lot of silly pictures in your stash. I actually had quite a number of choices on what photos to scrap for this challenge but I decided to scrap a picture of Ally wearing her orange sunglasses....

I like how this layout turned out, it's one of those unplanned ones where I just cut and paste and added embellies here and there.

A couple of detail shots....

Its now your us some silliness! Layouts/Projects are due on Monday, 22 Nov, 12midnight, EST. Link up your projects HERE!

My Flower Girls

I'm a big fan of Prima ! Who can resist the flowers right?!? Naturally, I played along with the sketch for October Build-A-Page. I used a photo of my girls when they were flower girls at my brother in law's wedding last  June.

My layout didn't win but was one of the featured layouts! Yipee! This really made my day! You can take a look at the other layouts HERE and you'll be inspired for sure!

A Taste of Summer

With all the rain that we've been having the past few days, I was inspired to create a summery layout. Hehe! Based this on the October sketch at ScrapInspireCreate!

I've been hoarding my Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat pps for quite sometime now...its about time I use it!
Ohhh, and I created a flower by layering the small bits of paper that comes out of the Martha Stewart puncher thatI used on the left.

Here's a closer look:

Thanks for looking!

Wee Little Ones!

Wee Little Ones! This is what the Design Dollies' elements challenge is all about this week! This is open to your interpretation.This could mean little tiny people, very small embellies, something wee in your photos/images, mini ornaments or mini cards, or whatever. just stick to the theme and you'll be all set.

This is what I did...I scrapped a photo taken when Julia was just about a month old. Her hand sure looks small compared to ours.

I used the minimalist approach to this layout but I love the way it turned out. So happy I was able to use some of my rub-ons. I admit I don't get to use this type of embellishment often.

We want to see your take on the challenge...details HERE!
