My sweet Girls Layout!

I'm back today to share another layout I created. The inspiration for this project came from a layout and challenge from my friend Kathryn blog Life on the {Scrap}beach. The challenge had 2 parts that I tried to achieve. The first was to create a Star-burst pattern. You can watch how Kathryn creates this design by watching her Youtube video! The second was to use up some of the 6x6 paper pads in my craft stash. I have about 50 so I could use more ideas like this to utilize my supplies.

I chose to use Earth Love by Cosmo Cricket. I have 3 of these 6x6 mini decks. It's one of my favorite paper collections released by Cosmo Cricket. I guess maybe that's why I felt the need to buy 3 pads.
I printed my photos with a Tint as I didn't want the straight black and white. The largest photo of my Oldest daughter has a sepia and blue tint added. The smaller circle photo with my two youngest just has the blue tint. (after I completed the layout I wish I would have added a little sepia tint to that photo as well to balance the photos out)

I accented my layout with several flowers from Petaloo and Prima. Scrapadabadoo has several of these style flowers that I love to use. I tucked in a few 7 gypsies velvet leaves as well. (these leaves are really hard to find these days as they are discontinued so I save for Special projects) The chipboard piece is the small vine flourish from dustyattic that I simple stamped with my Prima notary stamp then accented with a little white paint. I used fabric letter stickers from thickers and inked with Walnut stain Distress ink. A small bow tied from May arts ribbon finished it off nicely.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project and I hope it inspires you to go try out the challenge over on Kathryn's blog! Oh yeah you could win a G45 stamp set donated by Scrapadabadoo ---- or a perfect trim ruler donated by the creator herself Barb.
