The Color Room - Palette 98

Totally loved the colours that Lydell put together over at the Color Room this week and here is my take on them.
Whilst I do love the rain, it can be so annoying when you need to get a shot of your layout, at least I did get one without rain drops on it. lol
The photo was taken of my Daughter and Son Easter Sunday whilst they were egg hunting, and some how another photo of another occasion was taken over it, not sure how this happened but it did. I still wanted to use the photo as its sentimental and I thought it looked kind of cool the way the double exposure of it has the background of O'Rileys in it.
The flowers are handmade using paper from Crate Paper Samantha Collection, not too mention very therapeutic when dealing with Telstra, yes I made these whilst waiting on hold for over an hour. How I manage to annihilate them is amazing. Lil Davis metallic shades "Sweet Pea" was used for the paint splattering and Tim Holtz paint splatter stamp. The swirls are a Dusty Attic frame that I cut to fit into the flow of the circle shape.
Hidden journalling behind photo is a note to my kids about how I hope they get as much enjoyment one day when they have kids on these celebration days. Product use: DCWV Latte Cardstock Navy background and Glitter die cut circle, Dusty Attic Frame, K & Company Addison papers, Micro Beedz, Websters & Scrap Metals Alphas, Transparency word "Me" Autumn Leaves, Magic Dotti, Crackle Glossy Accents, Pink Paislee Journal note. Color Box inks and bling brads. Hopefully I haven't left anything out, feel free to ask me any questions, thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave, they are always welcomed and enjoyed.
