I've had this photo for, oh, about 16 years that I've wanted to scrap. I've told the story to my daughter many times, and I thought it was about time I actually put it down on paper for her kids to read someday. Here's the finished layout:
Honestly, though, it wasn't until I saw the star background paper from the Country Livin' collection by We R Memory Keepers that the desire really started to beckon to me. I seriously love that sky blue color and the cream stars. So dreamy. And you would never know that the other colors in the collection are more bold and have a State Fair/Farm type of feel. Just goes to show you how versatile patterned papers within a collection can be!
Stars and sleeping go hand in hand and as I thought in my head about a color scheme, pink, yellow, gold and white kept coming to mind.
I used the yellow (punched with one of the Tab Punches also by We R) from one of the other Country Livin' papers and then added a second collection with the pink. The pink comes from the Simply Spring collection. I love how the pink and blue help to tone down the bright yellow patterned paper.
I used the Simply Stars stamp set from Stampin' Up! to add gold accents to the background. The pink glitter chipboard letters are also from the Simply Spring collection from We R Memory Keepers.
Then I just used other stamps and embellishments I had in my stash to add to that dreamy feel.
Here's a close-up of one of the embellishment clusters:
|The butterfly is also from the Simply Spring collection|
I love, love how this layout came together. It really conveys the feeling I was going for. I also love how you can combine two totally different collections to make a single layout!
Thanks for joining me at the Table today!
