We all joke that that's the boy's "heartthrob" photo. Just look at that adorable expression. Can't you just see that on the cover of Teen Beat (or whatever THE teen heartthrob magazine is these days)?
I made this layout for this week's SPCC color challenge:
I had this leftover piece of the yellow & white paper already trimmed up like that and thought it looked pretty cool so I left it as is. To make it a neat rectangle I backed the one side with some yummy leftover Basic Grey. Ever since spying the gorgeous turquoise and red hot air balloon and birds paper by My Minds Eye on a layout by Tessa I just HAD to have it. Isn't it just so stinkin adorable??!!
After fussy cutting out the birds and balloons, I used the leftover red background pieces to cut the hearts. As you can see from the pic above, there's lots of dimension on this layout. Of course, had fun with the sewing machine again (the thread is hot pink despite looking red in the pics).
Can't seem to leave my Dymo alone, either. Ran some pinkish Basic Grey thru and sanded the raised letters to make them stand out.
Be sure to head on over to the SPCC blog to check out what the Design Team made for your inspiration. This was such a fun color combo and you will not be disappointed with the samples. Be sure to hook up your project to Mr. Linky for your chance to win an awesome prize from Miss Sam herself!
Busy, busy blogging day today. The first day of the month AND a Monday so lots of fun business to attend to. Off to make something for the Dollies and then SLEEP!!! Hopefully I'll actually get some tonight.
Thanks for stopping by!
