Awesome Moment / My Scraps & More

Hey there!  I have a bright layout to share today.  I created this for a Friday Favorites challenge over on the My Scraps forum a few weeks ago.  This is where we choose a layout from a forum member to lift.  I chose an amazing layout from Brianna to lift.  She used some fun geometric shapes around her photo, so I used a geometric-type die cut and backed it with bright patterned papers from the Echo Park Creative Agenda collection.

I titled this one Awesome Moment because even though it looks like something very ordinary, it isn't.  My girls hardly EVER sit beside each other, and if they do, it's usually by mistake and lasts only for a few seconds.  This time it was a few minutes.  For me, it was very awesome to see them together!  I finally used one of the awesome wooden script words....I think from Studio Calico.  I inked it yellow.

I sort of went stitch crazy here....haha.  I can't help it...I'm in love with my sewing machine!  Isn't that flair pin so cute?  Love that EP has these now!

I created lots of layers here.  I wanted more pops of color, so I added in those numbered chipboard circles.  I picked them for color...not the numbers.  I even stitched on my photo...and I love the effect!

I was happy with how this one turned out...even though my background threw me for a while.  It was hard to jazz up such a dark color, but with the help of some gesso and gelatos, I made it work.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
