Look at me, getting things DONE this month! LOL (Actually, I worked ahead so I can play along this month as I am in a flurry of preparations for May at this time!)
I picked Stephanie's Blog to give me some inspiration for a layout about a night out with my hubby. He surprised me for Valentines Day with a trip to paint some pottery, have some dinner at a new place and then come home (picking up the kids on the way) for dessert and a movie. Since he is FAR from crafty, this was a great surprise (and the fact that he loved painting pottery was even better!).
Once I saw the skyline on Stephanie's blog header I knew exactly what I wanted to make. Sometimes inspiration really does dictate what your project will be.
Picking the paper was the hardest part of this layout. LOL I was looking for just the right shade of blue and found it in a sheet of Studio Calico paper. I love how it goes from lighter to darker (hard to see in the photo). I took advantage of some of my Color Shine mists to make some splatters (I never get tired of doing that). The only thing I am not really loving is the large paper clothes pins. I wish I had cut them smaller, but was afraid that I would lose some of the details.
Whew! On to another project! I hope you will post your creations on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog! And don't forget to save a special challenge project of your choice for our blog hop!
