I'm going to enter this layout that is so special to me in 3 different challenges.
This is a picture we took this Sunday while visiting my Dad at his home, along with my daughter and her 3 1/2 week old little girl. So we had 4 generations together. Not a lot of people are that blessed to have everyone together, but I'm so glad I am.
I started off being inspired by the Feb. 15th sketch at "LET'S GET SKETCHY" I also wanted to the color/photo inspiration challenge #322 at "LASTING MEMORIES" Then I knew I could also enter it at "SCRAPPING 4 FUN" Challenge #84 - Anything Goes.
So I started looking for papers to use and I pulled out my My Minds Eye collection 'Chalk Studio II'
I haven't used it very much and of course it had great black papers and also this red and white striped paper so was perfect for the photo/color challenge. I used my cricut to cut the scalloped circle from a solid black sheet with white floral design in upper left and right corners. I then fussy cut the two chalk white flowers out of what wasn't cut in the corners to use as my embellishments, Used a sparkly red bling for the centers and also matted on red card stock and fussy cut again. I matted my picture in red to let it pop more against the black. A small piece of white card stock to journal on that I inked in red and then used red ink for the date and location of the picture. White Thickers for my layout and I was finished.
Here are the links for the challenges.
