The Studio Challenges - February colour challenge

I was pulled out of my comfort zone for this one - here's the challenge:

Yeah - NO pink or red for a love themed layout! To make things harder, I chose a photo of my daughters - I always associate them with red and pink. 

I grabbed some Sassafras Lass papers, alpha stickers and brads (the colours were perfect for the challenge!), some Twiddleybitz chipboard fern leaves, and my Sizzix Tattered Florals die, and off I went.  Here's what happened:

I added the journaling with a green pen, and then the top left hand corner looked a little stark, so I used my Martha Stewart border punch and stitched some scraps of paper with my sewing machine. I added some little white dots to the alpha with a white gel pen to lift the dark green letters just a little.  You should be able to click on the pic above to make it bigger if you'd like more detail.

Well, that was my first challenge layout completed for The Studio Challenges. Thanks for stopping by!

    This is a fabulous layout. Your girls are absolutely adorable. I love the circles leading to that fabulous floral/title arrangement that is framing the photo.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me some love!
