Check out this layout I created highlighting a recent Crazy Hair Day photo! Any guesses who inspired the look?! My girls have such colorful personalities, I wanted to make the page bright and bold to match them… and of course getting creative time is always a pleasure : )

Do you like creating your own backgrounds for your layouts? I definitely do! Usually I use templates or stencils (like these from The Crafter’s Workshop) with Dylusions Spray Inks or Tim Holtz Distress Inks or Tim Holtz Distress Stains to create my own papers like here, here and here. For this layout I went with stencils and gelatos. It was a first for me to use gelatos on a layout. What do you think?

I actually filmed my process and created this video showing how it all came together… Enjoy!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!

Castle // Princess {Photo Challenge}

Sue over at A Word in Your Ear landed on CASTLE for this week’s challenge. As I started thinking about my travels to Europe and what adventures I might be able to pull photos from… my mind wandered around the room and I realized I live in a castle. Well, not really, but I live with two little princesses who a). have enough stuff to fill a castle, b). really do act like little princesses and c). love all things princess related.

So, I decided these shots would work for my contribution to the “castle” challenge! My big girl (when she had just turned four) as “Belle” and my little one (when she had just turned two) as Snow White. Seriously, my baby l-o-v-e-s dressing up as Snow White! Remember this post? I have a whole series of Snow White shots I need to do something with, but I’ll save that for another day : )
