I just discovered the beautiful pack of Peach Azalea Pack, I wish I had grabbed them as they would have been perfect for this Inspiration Board.
For the peach tone I have gone with a tone closer to the ribbon on the album in the top right corner of the Inspiration Board.
I am so happy that I started doing Challenges as it is getting me creating more, though a big part of the challenge for me is so far many I have wanted to participate in including this one I don't tend to have many papers or sometimes any papers that are in the colours of the challenge so I am limited in choice and in a way that adds to the fun, seeing what I can create with limited choice.
When I saw that the Mother die cut from Kaisercraft Charlotte's Dream Collectables matched the Rusty Coral Lace Flowers I wanted to attempt to do a 8x8 layout for my daugher's pregnancy album.
The Love die cut match the peach items I had.
I grabbed out some of this vintage white lace from my mother's sewing stash. I love that I get to use items from her stash in my layouts, it is a great way to treasure her things.
A Black Ribbon Rose for something black.
For Kraft I thought I would do some heart punches or a tag.
I layed 2 rulers down at the 8 inch mark on my craft mat so I would have a idea of the space I had as I experimented with creating a 8x8 layout, this way if I decided to go with a 12x12 I hadn't cut the sheet of grey paper that has a really lovely subtle pattern.
I really like how this layout looks and wish I had double of the supplies so I could do both layouts that I experimented with.
I really wanted to do a layout about how loving my boys are towards each other and I felt this Inspiration Board was perfect for that.
I decided to go with this layou as I loved the extra space of the 12x12.
I decided to add some more of the black twine to my layout, however the last spot I was adhering it the paper got damaged so I created another embellishment cluster to cover the tear.
I love the end result.It has a few more embellishments than I intended but overall I feel it suits the photos of my loving boys.
