CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop: RELAY RACE!

This month, we are having a blast hopping as a RELAY RACE! (If you've arrived from Adeline's blog, then you're not seeing double- you're in the right place!) If this is your first stop, then after reading this paragraph, you might want to go to Nikka's blog to "start" (or you can continue on to Corina's blog and circle back around).

For the relay race, we were sent an inspiration piece to use as our muse for our project. You can see Adeline's lovely layout at right. I was especially drawn to the purple, butterflies, flowers, and flourishes, so I began searching (high and low) for photos that would work. There was NOTHING in my stash that I liked, but because I had spring on the brain, I did find the photos from when my baby turned one.

I went with the pastel theme and used her general layout sketch to guide my layout:

Isn't she sweet? This layout will be the title page of her one-year-old scrapbook (which is mostly completed except for a few layouts here and there).

I had a blast with the clear and pink sparkles! (I had wanted to use the Pearl Opaques on the letters to match her pearl necklace, but I was flat out of the bitty ones!)

I also really liked how Adeline incorporated the Kraft border on her layout (under her photo), so I used one on my layout too. Can you tell that I wove a thin strip of cardstock through the border? I thought it looked a bit like a trellis.

I may have gone a little crazy with the flowers, but I like them!

Now, hop on over to Corina's blog to see what she created using my layout as her inspiration! Continue hopping around and watch the ideas evolve. Thanks for hopping by!

P.S. Here's that sweet little girl now!
