I am back to share another layout using the fabulous Pink Paislee "Indigo Bleu" range that I received as my DT kit this month from Handmade by Suzanne :)
I was really inspired by fellow HBS DT member, Marelize's DT sample layout for the April Scrap the Girls challenge....& thought that my DT kit would be perfect for this months sketch challenge, and the idea of the layout I had in mind.
So here is the sketch....
And here is what I have created....
Indigo Bleu products used - Paper Calico, Border Stickers, Shipping Tag, Boutique Trinkets
Other products - Prima Flowers, Prima Shabby Chic Metal Treasures - Bird Cages, Prima Art Tiles, Kaisercraft Grid stamp, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, American Crafts Thickers, Pink Paislee Artisan tape, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, D'Lish Scraps ribbon flower & ticket, October Afternoon & Carolees Creations alpha stickers, Buttons, Twine, Scraps of a cut up cotton doiley.
Layout is about Kate's first day of catching the school bus.
And now for a few close ups...
I wanted to include lots of journaling for this layout, to tell the story of DD's first time of catching the school bus & how she got off at the wrong bus stop! I didn't want to leave anything out, so there ended up being too much journaling to fit on a journal spot, or even as hidden journaling under the photos....so I decided to go with journaling straight onto the layout & am pretty happy with the result :)
(Ps. The journaling isn't really sloping, as it appears.....it's the white flowers that are running at a slight angle making the journaling appear to be sloping down)
Well that's all from me for now....hopefully I'll be back in the next few days or so to share my next layout using this gorgeous Pink Paislee range! TFL xx
