Hello You (August Scrapstuffz "Inspired By" Challenges Blog)

I have a layout revealed over at Scrapstuffz "Inspired By" Challenges today!  Our inspiration piece was the following lovely beach photo:

I was inspired by the colours of the deck chairs, and the way they are lined up in the photo.  I used yellow with pops of aqua and pink, and lined my embelishments up along side the lower third of the page.  I had fun with an exclusive Paper Bakery mask, and my new Amy Tangerine Stitching Template.  
My layout is all about my daughter, and the new dress that she got from a local school fair.  The cutest thing is that the dress was about 5 sizes too big, but she still insisted on wearing it. At least we'll get lots of use from it!

I just absolutely adore that chipboard vase of flowers from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss.  I had to make sure it featured, so I anchored it on the strip of yellow polka dot paper with a couple of woodgrain pennants from the same collection.

Check out the Scrapstuffz blog for all the details. Do come and play along, I can't wait to see what inspires you!

Be blessed
