Project 12 - March 2011

I've been so caught up in life and other scrappy projects that I almost forgot about my Project 12! Since yesterday was a Stat and Greg was around to handle requests from the girls, I took the opportunity to tackle my March layout.

This was the sketch we were given.

And this is what I came up with. 
It actually came pretty easily this month. I knew my pictures had a lot of deep pink (when don't they!) and I also wanted to playup on the yellow in LC's rain coat so I looked through my Basic Grey stash and these papers from their Lemonade collection seemed to fit. Also, LC's birthday cake and cupcakes were made with cherry flavoured cake and the cake had cherry pie filling inside!! How perfect are those cherries then, eh?!

Here's the left side of the layout. 

And the right side. Do you notice anything different about the top right corner? 

Here's a close up. 
When I was punching out the edges, the Martha Stewart corner punch and edge punch didn't quite line up so I thought I'd just  fix it later. You know, cover it up with something. Then I forgot, until I was taking the pictures. Doh! So I scrambled back to my craft room and came up with this quick fix. 
What do you think? It works, doesnt' it? Plus it gave me another journalling opportunity.

Here is a close up of the first flower embellishment I made. I coiled another bit of the sequin ribbon I'd used already onto a 1"circle of the yellow paper. But it looked too plain so I punched out 6 hearts and adhered them to the back, scrunched them up a little and voila! A pretty cool looking flower if I do say so myself!

In fact, I liked it so much I repeated it here in the title and again at the top - see the photos above. 

Well, there you have it. Another month done ... 9 to go! LOL!
Better get it submitted before I miss the deadline!
Thanks for stopping by.

  3. You almost forgot me! Blasphemy! :) I really like the yellow in the design. The floral technique is awesome too. They remind me of Cosmos flowers. Nice job!
