The challenge started with a sketch and the prompt to use "drippage" on the layout. So I started with American Crafts white cardstock. Sprayed it with Vibrant Turquoise and Pure Sunshine Dylusions. Made all efforts to get it as drippy as possible. Then I used my paper from the current Simon Says Stamp card kit EveryDay Happy for embellishments, mats, etc. I belong to this card club though I am primarily a scrapbooker. So it is my goal to make at least one layout from the monthly supplies in addition to making cards. Thus, this layout. In addition to making my own little embellies from the kit, I used a product (Recollections wood veneer) that I bought two days ago. THIS is very unusual for me. I normally have to hoard for at least six months.
Anyway, I am very happy with the layout even though when editing the photos on my computer, I thought Lexi's clothing colors were more aqua. When I got the prints, they were obviously more toward the blues. Oh, well, it's still a nice layout. And I did my best to use the challenge colors but as I type this, I realize I did not use any buttons. I did use butterflies and flowers.
Thanks soooo much for the challenge and, Debbie, for nudging me out of my safe place.
