Project Monday

First to share her project today, is our super cool guest, Kelly Purkey!  Just look at the gorgeous layout she made using her photo from our last photo prompt.....

I knew that I wanted to use the photo as a bigger enlargement on the page to really let it be the showcase of the layout.  That left me just a little bit of room to add in some supplies, so I took advantage of the space and added in some pops of color with Studio Calico Mister Huey's Color Mists.  I punched a few butterflies and used them as masks for my misting.  I created the little title block down at the bottom of the layout to add in some more fun elements like label stickers and buttons.  Everything used to create this layout came from my Studio Calico March kits.

And here's my layout.....

*Looking Up* Layout

So, since I'm currently visiting with family in Washington, I decided to make it easy on myself and create a digital layout for my project today.  I have really been enjoying printing out my digital layouts this year and adding them to my 2011 album, and now I can't wait to do the same for this one!

When I set out to create this layout, i knew I wanted it to be soft and kinda sweet looking, so when I found this shade of pink to use for the background I was stoked.  I layered it with a woodgrain texture that Ryan had bought for me years ago, and then created different size scallops with the text "c".  Last I added my text/writing.....and that's pretty much it.  Easy peasy : )

Enjoy your week!
Love, Kelly and Carrie
