But, back to the business at hand ... if you're interested in seeing my P12 layouts from January and February please click on the links. This month I am using this sketch from Pagemaps March 2012 sketches.
Sometimes I use the sketch literally and sometimes it is more of a spring board for my own inspiration. Here is where this sketch took me this month.
I have a little problem with wanting to use more photos than a sketch calls for .. I'm sure there are therapy groups for it!
This month I am using Beyond The Garden Designer Series Paper. (I am working on another little project using this DSP which I hope to have ready to post soon. It's super cute - you don't want to miss it!) You really need to click on the link and check out all the fun patterns and colours in this line. I decided that the blue and yellow complimented the colours from my pictures and then accented with pops of Melon Mambo.
And now for the close ups, starting with the left hand page.
And then the right hand side.
And finally the embellishments.
I created the flowers using my Blossom Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch and 1" Circle Punch plus some buttons from the Neutrals Collection. Underneath are some different coloured doilies. I cut these out using my Paper Doily Sizzlet Die in shades of Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo for my other project which only required the centre portions so I used the outer portion to embellish this layout. Pays to be a pack rat at times!
The title uses more of my Alphabet Soup On Board letters which I inked up with Melon Mambo. It's a bit hard to see but I used my Calendar Alphabet & Numbers stamp set to stamp the year.
Under this flower I used a small piece of 1/2" Scallop Dots ribbon in Melon Mambo. I also used it to add a knot detail (see below.)
The extra doilies came in handy to accent this picture of Marley's latest lost tooth.
Hope you enjoy it. Have a great Easter Weekend everyone!
