TRR Challenge #8 'Citrus Sunshine' (again)

I used to always be creating mini albums and layouts but things have changed and I make far more cards these days. There are lots of subjects that you can scrap about but as I have children, most of mine are based on them. However, having a passion for ribbons, flowers and pastel colours and two little boys, don't really go together, so I've found it harder to scrap about them.

Our latest Ribbon Reel Challenge seemed like a super opportunity to pull out some photos and get a layout together. I based it on the following Kirsty Wiseman sketch from a few weeks ago.

and here is my layout...

LinkLinkThe colours are perfect for The Ribbon Reel Challenge #8 Citrus Sunshine, to use Turquoise, Yellow & a touch of Green (plus neutral). My touch of green was my large button and apple green bakers twine.

I used one of the techniques learnt on my recent MIMM journal, by using bubble wrap and paint to create a circle effect on the aqua coloured cardstock. I loved adding this pom pom trim instead of hearts, as per the sketch.

I'd like to enter it into the following projects:

4CraftyChicks - 'twine'
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - 'Primary Colours'

- 'Summertime'

Supplies used:
Cardstock - Bazzill, Echo Park Victoria Gardens
Trim - Yellow Bakers Twine, Apple Green Bakers Twine and Navajo Pom Pom trim from the ribbon reel
Other - Aqua Scenic Route alphabet, Thickers white mini, button, paper doily from stash
