I wanted to try a few new things on this kit including using hexagon elements and some very dramatic shading. Here are some cute pictures of Sarah and Noelle that I took at the park the other day after our music class. I also did a cool thing where I "threaded" the charm through the thread stitching. Take a look at the close up.
For the second layout, I used some picts from a friend of her daughter's 1st birthday. She is a real cutie and had on the most adorable colorful tutu. One neat thing I did with this layout is to use one of the butterfly cutouts as a clipping mask to show the paper underneath. Thanks to Kelly for letting me use these pictures!
And for the third layout I just had fun with a picture of the doggies that my mother-in-law took in front of our hydrangeas a few summers back.
I also made up a cute layout for The Urban Fairy's "In Bloom" minis, which is part of a huge March Coordinated Collection with a lot of the designers at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio. This are very colorful kits with these neat multicolored leaves and twists and branches that I love!
Each one of these minis is available for 1$ right now!
Now here is my layout. It's a cute pict that my hubby took of me and the boys last Mother's day, as well as a pict of one of the beautiful and exotic purple jacaranda trees that we have here in SoCal.
Oh I should mention that I used one element (the frame) from Artful Love and some washi tape from the Washi Lover Volume 1, also from The Urban Fairy!
