At 3pm on cool winter afternoon...

Creators' Circle 3pm Layout

Creators' Circle 3pm Layout Collage

.....I was walking with my little sister on the beach, in Sequim, Washington.  We had just bought new sunglasses, and wanted to have a fun photoshoot with lots of bright colors!  It was a good day.

This was my layout for our Creators' Circle meeting the beginning of March.  Lovely Jane provided the kit, and also a fun challenge with it (will have more info on her challenge soon).  There are pictures of our make and take for March, and everyone's layouts from February on our blog HERE.  Man, it was crazy, in February, most of the girls did three or more layouts each!  I love these girls!!!

For this layout, I added some white spray paint at the top, and blended it toward the bottom.  To me it feels like it helps the photos pop.  I also used a little red ink splatter, a white doilie behind the large photo, distressed the black rose to make it red, and sewed a bit.  In general, I usually only use one photo per layout......for some reason I like it better.  But for this layout, there were so many fun photos to choose from I had to use a bunch :)

Today I am helping a friend with some Easter cards, and this weekend I am looking forward to preparing my projects for our next Creators' Circle meeting in April.  We all added handmade items to the kit, so there are so many beautiful pieces I feel very inspired. I am also really excited, because we drew names, and get to swap Easter baskets!  I just mostly finished the one I'm giving, and I LOVE it!!!  (Will share pics after I give it away.)  It's vintage inspired spring, so like a dusty peachy rose matched with bright'll see.

Have fun creating!
