Just Another Beautiful Day

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I'm sharing a layout I created for Gerry's shaped layout challenge at the Webster's Pages ning site. I had a ball fussy cutting and designing with the Spring Market collection. The colors and patterns are fresh and bright so I went with a yellow, green and red color palette, no grunge here!

This picture of Emily is a couple of years old but I thought the colors and the expression in her face went perfectly with this collection. It took me forever to fussy cut the bird and hanging sign image but thought it was worth it. It almost looks like Emily is gazing at it! Here are a few close-ups:

I cut a lot of the images in the design paper out and highlighted the cutouts by adding Rock Candy Stickles, layering them and adhering some with Pop Dots.

I remembered to take pictures as I created that paper border so I should have a tutorial for you soon. Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a beautiful day!!!
