this is LOVE

Happy New Year Everyone! I am so behind on uploading projects to my blog! The last few weeks have been so busy and I am still lazying around after the holidays :) I hope you are all having a good January!

The color palette this time was a set of warm colors. Cinnamon and Saffron shades! This is what I came up with the colors! I did a ton of sewing and finally used enamel dots from my stash!

I wanted to add a lot of journaling on this layout. I decided to use one of the cut files from Silhouette Store for the journaling and tucket it behind the photo with an arrow pull tab! Lots of times, I stitch on single layers and then attach them with pop dots to create layers. It helps keep my thread from getting tangled and I still get the same look!

I also made a banner to add under the pic. I added a layer of vellum on the banner to soften the chevron banner. It was very distracting and it was taking away from the photo. I wanted to keep the focus on the photo.

I wish I had posted this earlier! Unfortunately this color challenge is now closed! I am sorry :( This layout was based on the below color palette and sketch! 

Thanks for dropping by! I love hearing from you. Please connect me to your blogs as well, so I can get inspired! There are two challenges running on Color Me Scrappy currently ! Go check them out and use them as prompts for your next layout! Have a good day!
