When I got home from work the other day Miss Bella was in the yard with her daddy. They were commenting on my tulips. This is the first year since we've lived in our house (10 years this June) that I've had more than a handful of tulips. Every year I get 2 or 3 here or there and this year I actually have a cluster of them...hahahaha. I ran into the house to get the camera because Miss Bella was trying to smell them. She would sniff and look at me like "they don't smell!". She had such a confused look on her face. I did restage her smelling them, however I couldn't stage the confused look.
The very next day I found out what this week's challenge was going to be and check out the colors...Karen couldn't have picked a better pallette to work with. YEAH me. Even Miss Bella's spring jacket fits the color scheme. I immediately went to work and this is what I came up with:
I have no idea what the background papers are...they are from my stash...(personal goal again, hahaha). I loved the orangish paper because it has words like, flowers, sunshine, blooming, happiness, etc. LOVE IT. I then tore this pinkish paper that had some orangish color in it also. I did faux stitch with my white gel pen around that piece, but it's kinda hard to see in the photo.
This whole page came together beautifully. I added a sheer ribbon to the neck of the tulips and also on the left border and some bling to the top right.
I hope I've inspired you to do a layout with this "Inspirational Photo" color pallette and hope to see you enter the challenge over at Lasting Memories. Who knows, you might be in the Top 3...I look forward to seeing some of your creations.
