Speaking of summer, our next challenge is up at Color Combos Galore, and we're continuing our theme with a delightful palette and Inspiration Board.
But first, here's some music to get you in the summery mood--we're playing it over at the CCG reveal...
So here's the challenge:
And here's my page. I dug out a ton of older stash for this layout. The ledger paper in the background is pretty old Collage Press paper, and the big cream on pink polka dot paper is by K&Co.
And here are some closeups. The rolled papers are my attempt at making birthday candles. I used some ancient Chatterbox paper (stripes), some October Afternoon (black polka dot) and Die Cuts With a View (red polka dot). I used pearl-topped stickpins for the candle flames. That red gingham ribbon was sitting my desk, leftover from a recent layout. The pearl brad is by Recollections from Michael's.
I used some other stuff that happened to be sitting on my desk--the Prima flower, which I layered over an old black cork flower. The fabric brad is by SEI. That scrolly bit holding my title was also sitting on my desk, a reject from a previous layout. The red cut-out designs are from a Pink Paislee paper. I added a snippet of red mesh behind all of this.
These pink elements are cut out of an American Crafts Letterbox paper. For the Designer's Challenge, I found some digital frame stamps at Designer Digitals. I just pasted them on top of my picture and changed them to white.
That strip of circles is by BasicGrey and also happened to be sitting on my desk leftover from the last layout I made. All these bits and pieces were easy to collect together because they were just sitting there staring at me (good thing I don't always clean my desk after finishing a page!). The journaling tag is also by Collage Press. As always, I added some word stickers. They always seem to do the trick when something seems "missing" when I look at my page the next day.
I hope you'll come play with us at CCG! You should definitely go take a peek at the fantastic pages by our design team, guest designer, and featured member. It's always so fun to see all the different takes on the same challenge!
