Hey. Hi. Hello.
It has been exactly one month since I was here last. My bad. I have been extremely busy of late. To the point that it took me the entire month to finish this layout! Yeah, crazy busy! But here it finally is.


As soon as I saw the mood board over at Scrap Around The World I just had to use it! It can be found here.

The ideas cam flooding in!! Of course the colours were a great inspiration but I also took the idea of running mist down the page from the bottom left picture in the board. And I got messy, it was fun.

This didn't work exactly how I was planing. I hoped the mist would run around the modelling paste bubbles more rather then just straight over the top. Thicker/more modelling paste this probably the solution to that problem.

Hopefully when things calm down some I will be able to share a how to post for this layout with more info on the background.

The layout of the page came from the Purple Pumpkin November sketch challenge here.

I loved this sketch for all its white space which also made it a perfect match with the mood board challenge.

Purple Pumpkin have heaps and lots of super colourful buttons, both flair and fabric. I could have covered the entire page in them! But I was going for a minimalist look and just snack the one flair in with my flower cluster.

I could of journalled heaps with this photo about how much these two already love and care for each other but I think the photo says so much by itself. So I simply titled it 'cherish'

Cherish works for it on so many levels. They cherish each other, I cherish them, these moments and watching they grow together. It makes me proud. Lots more about that in layouts to come I'm sure!
And keep your eye out for my up-coming how to with this layout.
XoXoX Nicole.
