Curly & Cute

Hi there, how’s it going? Only a few more sleeps to go & we’re onto a new month! Oh how time flies.  Last night I got inspired & made some time to scrap.  I created a layout featuring the gorgeous curly locks of my daughter.  I’m entering it for Sketchabilities Sketch #133:

And the gorgeous February Scrap Around the World mood board by Tatiana Sidorenko :

The main inspiration I took from the board is the beautiful hair.  I was also inspired by the lovely green colors, curls/swirls & the lush fauna.  Here’s my layout:

I’ve die cut a few swirly leaves in green & stone color/print paper for the cluster.  I also stamped some leaves on a couple of corners.

I added some strips of light lime green bling at different angles.

I painted the letter chipboards black, then embossed them gold with a woodgrain stamp (except for the letter “y” which is the left over from the chipboard piece).

011

I shaped a heart from one of the mini paper bloom’s stem.  Isn’t it so cute? 🙂

015

I added some seafoam green color to the heart veneers, inked the edges & added some alpha stickers on top.  I’ve die cut some doilies from some light yellow green vellum, then folded them in half.

So there’s my layout.  I hope you like it as much as I do.  I got so inspired by the gorgeous photos, I couldn’t stop creating this page last night (I had to restrain myself at some point, so as not to overdo the layout…lol!).  Again, thanks so much for all the inspirations & I look forward to next month.  Thanks for popping in & have a great day! 🙂

CSI’s got a lovely new case file & sketch by Page Drafts.  Here’s the Case FIle#143 & the sketch:

Here’s how I solved the case:

This layout is all about the power of my daughter’s smile.  I reckon her smile is the main reason how I got addicted to scrapbooking.  My evidences are: birds, flowers, leaves & butterflies.  My testimony is the word power as my inspiration for my journaling.

That’s it for me today.  Until then.
