I made this page for the Paper Girls Beach challenge. I had to dig deep into my photos for some beach photos. I finally found these photos of my daughter and I last year. I got a little chuckle that not one single photo showed her face. Oh well. It took a while for this page to come together. I had a very different paper as the background and I kept trying to make that paper work, but it just kept getting worse, so I abandoned it and started fresh with this pink polka-dot paper. When I was almost done with this page, I went to check what the date of these photos were and I totally had forgotten that they were taken on mother's day last year. I can't believe it was even warm enough to go to the beach that day! I totally thought these were taken more in the summer time.
I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash . I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two. The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another) I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering. I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.
