These Two

Happy hump day! 
Today is the 7th which means there is a new challenge over at Challenge YOUrself!  This month we have a sketch to follow and the theme is to scrap about an important female(s) in your life.  And don't forget to include YOU in the photo!  Here is my layout...

Pictured here are two very special ladies in my life!  We started out as just neighbors and now we are the best of friends.  They truly are good to me and I am lucky to share my everyday life with them!

Ok, and now for the sketch to follow.

For this layout I used the March 2014 Studio Calico kit called Office Hours, along with some vellum paper.  I fell in complete love with the background paper!  I just love the colors and it was perfect for my photo.  Here are a few close ups for better detail.


The title are chipboard letters by Thickers.  One of my addictions and I think I own every set!

I came across this bubble chipboard piece in my stash that I've had for months.  I colored it with a white dabber to match my layout.  Layered it with a preprinted vellum piece and an arrow paperclip.  Also adding a couple of little paper punched butterflies.  Aren't they cute?  Did you notice the little red flowers in the background?  Those are by Studio Calico, also included in the March kit.  I sprinkled them around throughout my layout.  I love the pop of color it adds.

Staying with the vellum detail, I cut out a few strips for my journaling and lightly inked the edges.  Here's a peek at my birds on a wire washi tape too.  That is one of my faves!

I painted, with my grey dabber, 2 wooden girl peoples to play along with my title.  So darn cute!  Another of my faves!
That is for today.  I hope my layout has inspired you enough to give this months challenge a try at Challenge YOUrself.  Give them a visit and check out the other designs for more inspiration.  Be sure to link up by June 5 for a chance to win a fabulous prize!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy scrapping to you!
