Blue & yellow is one of my absolute favourite combinations ... with the B & W photo of your lovely children, it just makes this layout perfect. I also love hidden journalling .. it makes it so much more personal. Oh, and BTW, I am one of those Moms who sang that song to her kids, too! lol
1/ You have beautiful children, what a fantastic photo this is :)
2/ This layout looks amazing. I love the papers, colours and design.
3/ I rarely use the colour yellow but am going to try more often now. I can see when it's mixed with other colours as you did here it looks very pretty. Thanks for giving me some inspiration.
I LOVE this layout! Such wonderful color scheme and I love all the tags and word bits you used. You did a wonderful job!!
This is gorgeous!
Project - my sunshine (times 4)...
by Wendy Sue
It's a song almost every mom sings to her kids - and I am proud to admit I'm not the exception…they ARE my sunshine…and they definitely make me happy when skies are gray.
When I took this photo of my four kids (one of those rare times when they were all cooperative and happy at the same time), that song kept playing over and over in my mind and I knew it would be the perfect title for a layout.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the polaroid-style frame and the text in the bottom portion of it. I knew I wanted yellow (since it was a page about “sunshine”) and I chose teal as a coordinating color. Next, I pulled out my box of tags and embellishments and started gathering everything that matched - color AND theme-wise. By collaging a lot of elements together I was able to create a super unique border, but it all has meaning too…the perfect combination!
There's also some hidden journaling tucked into a little envelope on teh side. Sometimes song lyrics are enough, but sometimes you want to add a little bit of personalization as well…and that's what I did on this layout. :)
