LOVE THIS GIRL - Single Page Layout
(Scraps of Elegance DT - 'Mix'd Media' Kit
+ Words & Paintery June Challenge & Sketchabilities #149)

Over the next few days I have a few more projects to share with you
that I created with the Scraps of Elegance May kit called 'Mix'd Media'.

In the making of this fairly soft pastel layout, I was inspired
by the June challenge at Words & Paintery that you can find HERE.

I was also inspired by this fabulous sketch from Sketchabilities!
No, the challenge blog is not back up and running, but the owner,
Karan Gerber, is skirting around the idea, and has offered us sketch #149
to play along with this month.  Find out more details HERE
I would so love to see Sketchabilities and Cardabilities come back 
as Karan's sketches are absolutely fantastic and so inspiring to me!

The Blue Fern Studios Happy Accident collection papers are so gorgeous
that I have had a hard time choosing which one to cut into for every layout
created with this kit.  For this page, you can see a pale pink background
layered with some blue and just a touch of yellowy beige.
The Elements Add-On kit comes with a pack of arrow words chipboard
also from Blue Fern Studios and so I used this one to create my title.

Like all SOE kits, there are tons of gorgeous flowers in the Main kit and 
the Floral Add-On. I opted for several pink blooms for this page.  I slipped some flower 
die cuts from the Tim Holtz Ephemera pack behind my flower clusters 
and added a Cuts2luv flair button from my own stash.

Below you see one of many Tim Holtz Ephemera butterflies die cuts
from the Elements Add-On.  Simply beautiful!

And of course, the star of my layout, my beautiful niece Ella.
The photo dates back a few years and, to date, is still a favorite of mine.
I have scrapbooked it before in the past, and will probably scrapbook it
again in the future.  It just makes my heart melt!

And that's it for today! I will be back tomorrow with some more!
