you are Lovely today

Hello scrappy friends!  And happy Monday to you!  How was your weekend?  I had a birthday yesterday so my weekend was fabulous!  I spent it with family.  I just love when we are all together at home again!

Today is the 15th so that means a new sketch is up at Sketchabilities  and here it is...

and her is my take on it...

This is my daughter with her new "ombre" hair color.  Its all the rave going on right now with hair and she was right on it!  I was skeptical about it at first, but once I seen it I just loved it on her!  So gorgeous!

I used On Trend by Crate Paper for this layout.  The colors were perfect for the pictures!  For me, I scrap around my pictures, chosing colors that work for them.  It seems most choose their papers first and then pictures.  To all their own, right?  You've got to go with what works for you!

For part of my title I cut out the word "today" with my Sizzix.  Oh my goodness, I havent gotten that out in years!  It was my very first die cut stysem and I just cant get rid of it.  The font is called Curlie Girlie.  I coated it with glossy accents to give it that shiney effect.

On the sticker banner I stamped the date and with the year and I stamped it multiple times until the ink was gone.  I just love that effect!

Well, thats it for now.  I hope it has helped inspire you in some way, maybe enough to check out Sketchabilities and join in?  Please do so if you can. 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
