CTD277 - Senior Picnic

Thanks for stopping by for Color Throwdown 277! This week is Broni's turn to host the challenge and here is the pretty, soft inspiration she chose for us to work with this week. 


I have a 12 x 12 scrapbook page to share using this week color challenge. I will admit that I sometimes I struggle working with pastel colors. But I love the soft, girly feel of my page which makes me think I need to push myself out of comfort zone more often!

Inspiration for my layout comes from the February Sketch Challenge at Scrap 365


Once I decided on my basic layout I used the Concentric Circles Stencil to add some pattern to the background of my page, using Berrylicious Ink. Any patterned paper is from Prima.


At the top I used the Cloud Trio Die-namics to add the three clouds and the Accent It - Story Starters to add the sentiment.


I added the page title with the Little Letters Die-namics, using corrugated paper to add some addition texture, along with a little machine stitching.


I love how this sweet embellishment came out and who doesn't like a picket fence! I used the Picket Fence Die-namics and Whip Cream Card Stock to create the fence. The flowers are cut with the Layered Rose Die-namics from Pink Lemonade Card Stock and Razzle Berry Felt. The leaves are cut with the Layered Leaves Die-namics and the white flower is from my stash.
