84 Days - New Layout

Happy Saturday my scrappy friends.  We started off the day with a great little playdate with 5 of Maddie's friends. We hosted and made strawberry iced tea, 7 layer dip, fruit, cheese, crackers, and two kinds of quiche for lunch. The kids all had a ball, although Maddie fell out of her chair and knocked her head pretty good.

This evening I was able to play a bit while Daddy gave Maddie a bath and put her to bed. :)  This layout is Maddie at 84 days - just 24" long.

I played along with the Fabulous Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs.  The challenge was to use a layout with only 3 colors - black, white, and one other color of your choosing.  The lighting wasn't too great, but I used white and grey (a shade of black) with my third color being yellow.  

For the left side I used the May sketch from DCWV.  I used two different Old World Stacks for the pattern papers.

I also played along with Sketch-N-Scrap's birthday bash with Ria's Die-cut challenge and Rachel's Twine Challenge! Ria's challenge was to use a die-cut.  I used the large arrows at the bottom of the left hand side created with my Quickutz. Rachel's challenge was to use twine.  I used twine along the top of my banner and then created a spiral on the end of the banner.

For the right side of my page I used the May week 1 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.

I also played along with It's About the Girls - May 15th challenge to create a starburst pattern.  I used the tutorial and created my own starburst.

Here are a few close-up photos:

Materials Used: paper - DCWV; border strip - K&Company; stickers - Colorbok; journaling tage - Colorbok; chipboard - BasicGrey; paint - Making Memories; chipboard - Jennibowlin; twine - WeRMemory Keepers; die-cut - quickutz; tag and metal - Me&MyBigIdeas; ink - CTMH.

Thanks for visiting!
