Layout 26 ~ Layout Contest 2016

I am now home from a fun filled week at the Close to My Heart Convention which was held in Disney World and trying to settle back into my normal routine.  So thankfully I had designed a layout before I left for convention, because life has been busy since coming back home.  Particularly with this weekend being the start of the July Fourth Celebrations.  Every year there is a layout contest for attending consultants.  I entered but unfortunately I was not one of the lucky ones.  I am still super pleased the way this layout did turn out.

Sangria ~ Florence ~ Layout Contest ~ fall layout ~ Artfully Sent ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this layout I actually combined Sangria with Florence.  I also used the Artfully Sent Cartridge to make the overlays behind the photos.

Sangria ~ Florence ~ Layout Contest ~ fall layout Left side ~ Artfully Sent ~ CatScrapbooking.comThe splatters are done with the watercolor paints.

Sangria ~ Florence ~ Layout Contest ~ fall layout Right side ~ Artfully Sent ~ CatScrapbooking.comThe leaves are done with the rock-n-roll technique using Friend Tree D1677 and then fussy cut out.

Happy Crafting!

This is my 25th layout of my personal layout challenge.

I suspect we will have a lot of MAGICAL participants in this hop.  Close to My Heart came out with a really fun paper pack named MAGICAL which will work well for anyone who has been to Disney!!  However this paper pack can really be used for anything as it is just fun with bright primary colors (check back on my blog over the next weekend).  I have been putting off doing my Disneyland photos and finally have the motivation to complete them.  I have to admit I totally lifted this layout from Pinterest and you can see my inspiration here.  This layout also keeps me on track with my personal layout challenge and brings me to layout #24.

I have to admit I was a bit unsure about this paper pack because of all the pink… I am not a pink girl and I have a boy so not my go to color.  I decided to challenge myself anyway since it does have blues, greens and black.  Well to my surprise I have really begun to fall for this bright and cheerful paper pack.

Everything ABC ~ Letter J

I have to admit the letter J is one of the more challenging letters.  I chose to complete a layout a JEEP, my son loves all vehicles but particularly one of our good friends Jeep.  I love the new paper packs and although the Magical paper would work fabulously for Disney, it was perfect for my JEEP layout.  Plus this layout works for my personal challenge and is layout number #18
