I ~heart~ Pieces of You

I have been DYING to share this one with you.  I made it for this week's SPCC Color Combo:

I have to admit, there's usually one color in every challenge - and expecially the 4 color combos - that throws me and my first reaction is there is no way I can come up with something for that.  This combo was no exception.  For some reason I could picture any 3 of the colors together but then throw in that fourth one and my creativity just curled up into a whimpering ball in the corner. 

And then I happened upon the DCWV paper from which I cut this embellishment:

And it all just fell into place from there.

This has become one of my fave layouts.  I love the way the colors are so vibrant - and it doesn't hurt that they photographed particularly well. 

This layout is an ode to my beautiful little daughter.  Is it wrong that I'm so jealous of her?  She (thankfully) takes after her father.  She has gorgeous olive-toned skin, beautiful rootbeer-colored eyes with long, thick, curled lashes, sleek, shiney almost-black hair with a shocking amount of red highlights (those she gets from me), and pillowy red lips (move over Angelina!).  Of course, I also had to get the little piggies in there.  Who doesn't love little piggies? 

Details:  DCWV paper; JudiKins Diamond Glaze; American Crafts felt flowers; SEI pearl brads; EK Success alpha stickers; Melissa Frances flat back pearls; trim - Michaels (green & red), unknown (yellow & pearls).

Head on over to SPCC to check out what amazing inspiration the design team has for you!
