A layout - Family

Happy Monday, everyone! Continuing from Sunday, it has been a wet and cool the whole day. What a way to officially end summer, right? (Not that we had any 'real' summer, hehe) I would like to share another layout I quickly did yesterday, just before sundown. I scrambled this up within an hour, just rushing this through before dark so this one is a bit simple.

This one is based on Pixie Dust Paperie February challenge, which is to create a project based on a sketch provided. Love this simple sketch, so much room to play around! I am using these rich colored papers from Kaiserkraft. Simply love that blue paterned paper that I want it to be a central part of the layout. Here is a picture of my family with my mom and brothers together, right before we took off to Melbourne :))

Guess what I used to mat the picture here? Yup, it's a Guess cloth tag. It is so pretty to be thrown away so I kept it. I'm glad I did as I get to use it here, and it kinda match with the whole theme too.. :)))

 Added a lot of laces and trims as one of the main element from the sketch. Don't you just love it when things in the stash worked out to compliment each other? Most of the time, I have to scratch my head to get things together!

 I am using this Family theme chipboard again. Yeah, boring title but I can't think of anything more creative! Plus this chipboard fits into the layout hehe..

I have to tell you, Pixie's kits are so yummy. Check out their sneaky peeky of their March kit.. I can't wait to see the kit and what their talented designers did with it!!! Plus, they are having a Pixie GIVEAWAY! This gorgeous Pixie October Kit "Fall in Love" is up for grab for one lucky winner. So don't waste time and head over there for a chance to win.

Have fun!!!!!
