Sunshine layout

Hi and welcome to my blog. It's been awhile since I've scrapped anything so I was in need of some good inspiration. The current sketch at Sketchablities is a great place to start and Anything But Cute blog also helped me with my layout inspiration. Here's the sketch I used.....

 
As always , there are so many great elements to this sketch... how can you not be inspired???
 
The current challenge over at Anything But Cute has a mood board .. featuring the beach theme created by the very talented Pamelia. I love the browns and blue and of course the beach theme.
 
 


And over at Mixed Media Monthly they also have a fun picture to inspire our creative mojo.
 
 
 

Lots of fun elements here to play along with , right???
 



 
My layout is a combo of the three... here it is....
 
 
I wanted a vibrant summery theme for my layout but not too bright so I opted for hues of blues and browns with splashes of colour to make my page pop. The "wooden " paper base and the strips of paper are from Crate Paper and flowers are from Magnolia and Prima.The background was created with some coffee cup stain stencils and  script stamps with a bit of Prima Bloom Spray in Precious Stone splattered about The wooden chippie was embossed with Orange Creamsicle embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang and the flourish was also LSG ep in Madonna Robe Blue Gold and Orange Creamsicle. The tag was a stamp from CTMH which I hand cut out.... I may add a date and some journaling later. To finish off my page, I matted everything on a bright turquoise cardstock base and my layout is finished!!!
