Layout 13 - Pout


Once again, I think I'm going to make it in just under the wire for the Design Dollies colour challenge this week, which is monochromatic pink with a pop of yellow. I love pink, but I've never done full-on pink like this, so this is pushing the boundaries a bit. What do you think? I made most of the paper from white cardstock, ink, a brayer, and background stamps. The journaling card and tape measure are cut from an old CTMH paper pack called Notebook (love it!) and the yellow flower center is just some pompom trim rolled up and glued with liquid glass. Cool, eh? Not sure what Ailis was pouting about in these photos, but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with Nolan!
Thanks so much to all of you who commented on my last post, it really helps to know you're thinking of us and wishing us well. I'll try to make it to all your blogs tomorrow, but for now this geriatric computer is making me want to drop-kick it out into the snow! Hugs, Roxy.
Supplies (all CTMH): White Daisy cardstock, Intrinsic Backgrounds and Noted Backgrounds My Acrylix stamp sets, Hollyhock and Blush ink, Jingle and Notebook patterned paper packs, pink gems
Other: pompom trim from Michael's, Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Tim Holtz Grungeboard, Autumn Leaves stamp set, Colorbox ink, Prima pebble, unknown yellow ribbon, staples

  7. Hey Roxy, have to laugh re: why Aillis is pouting...I love this monochramatic layout and those older papers look great, pays to hang on to them hey. My computer does the very same thing, so frustrating, but I have just found that if I go straight in and delete my internet history and cookies, it clears up straight away, under the tools bar. Thanks for saying I can stay it is still on the cards, just so many bills - you know how there is one period in the year they all seem to come and bombard you, so no scrap shopping for a while. Love to you, Melxx

  12. Catching up on your posts and I LOVE this! The pop of yellow really works against all the pink. Sometimes I feel like all my layouts are pink on pink on pink - 3 girls to scrap will do that to you!
