Color Combos Galore 192 & Once Upon A Sketch

This weeks inspiration picture inspired me to do some remaining pictures of my DD that I had printed off and not yet used. I had also popped over to Once Upon A Sketch and thought my layout also fitted the Sketch over there. I took these pics of her whilst she was out in the pool just before it started to get to cold to swim. She is not a big fan of swimming and cannot for the life of me understand why, must be a teen girl thing. Anyway the colours this week for me seemed to go quite well with water photos.

I have done lots of layering by using a lot of cutouts from paper. The background paper is Prima Madeline, Making Memories for all the flower cutouts and DCWV Glitter cardstock and Bazzill cardstock.

I used a Martha Stewart's punch on the glitter cardstock and stitched this down in a circle. Tags were cut from Websters paper and I have journalled on them about my DD lack of love for our pool....lol Title is made up of Chipboard Letters from Heidi Swapp and metalic letters are from Pressed Petals for some reason these a photographing a lot darker than what they actually are. I Matha Stewart punched some of the left over papers, inked and stitched these down. Other products used are silk ribbon, Swirl stickers, glimmer mist and Kindy Glitz.








I hope you enjoyed checking this out and were inspired in some way, thanks for any comments you may leave.
