Love Layout!!


Happy Monday morning everyone!! Does it seem like the weekend was just waaaay too short, or is it just me?? That always happens to me when I have to work the weekend. And it's rainy, crummy weather here today, so that doesn't help!!

Anyway, this is a layout I finished and submitted for the monthly contest at the new local sb store for April. They gave us the sheet of dark purple cardstock, 2 sheets of Serendipity patterned papers, the heart shaped chipboard, the white rick rack and the metal embellies! This is the layout I came up with and I'm very happy with it. I trimmed down the pp and did the edges with the direct-to-paper technique using Taken With Teal craft ink to give it some more depth. I used some Lavender Lace cardstock to mat the 5x7 picture (aren't we cute?) and played around a bit with the chipboard. I dtp'd the chipboard piece with TWTeal craft ink and put a piece of the LLace behind it to make it pop. Then I added a Heid Swapp ghost heart shape on it and used some Lavender Stickles around the edge. I then used some Pressed Petals Chip Chatter for the letters, which have a great texture to them, so I sponged them with Lavender Lace. I added the rick rack and also the provided metal embellishments on the top right-hand corner. I also used some awesome Prima flowers with a large silver brad in the middle and dressed it up with some more Stickles! My favourite part though is the song lyric I used at the bottom which I think goes so well with the mood of the second picture. These pics were actually taken by our daughter when we were on vacation last month. We were at St. Pete Beach in Florida and it was such a wonderful sunset and we had also just seen a school of dolphins jumping and playing in the surf near us. Anyway, the lyrics I used say: The way we fit together, it's like we're meant to be; and right here and right now, this is paradise to me. It is from a song by Bryan Adams called Where Angels Fear to Tread. Bryan is one of my fave songwriters and singers....okay probably my favourite!! Are you listening Bryan???? I luuuuuuuuv you!! *snort*

P.S. If you live in the St. Thomas area and happen to stop in at The Cat's Kaboose, feel free to vote for my layout if you like it the best!!! I could win a gift certificate for the store........thanks!!!
