Hold Me Tight- Mixed Media Layout for 7 Dots Sudio



Hi Everyone,
I created a scrapbooking layout which is a little different than my usual. I used the 7 Dots Studio Hazy days Collection with a stencil from Dreamscapes to create colourful patterns in the background.
Scroll down for my step by step video tutorial




Here is the video tutorial below:


 I really love the combination of these colors together and Hazy days was perfect for this layout.





This is a picture of my husband and I  while on vacation taken by my son without us knowing. My husband was helping me walk over some rocks and he was holding my hand so I won’t fall. My son had my phone and just took the picture and I love the spontaneity of it. Its one of my favourite pictures from this trip.

My Sunshine- Maja Design Mood Board Challenge


I created a scrapbooking layout based on the Summer Mood Board from Maja Design.
As its summer holidays this mood board is for both the months of July and August so lots of time to play.



Here is the mood board below:
I used most colors from the mood board except the reds as they didn't really fit with my theme.
The sunset picture on the mood board, inspired me to use this picture of my daughter during a beautiful sunset. I loved how the sun rays are right above her head, as if the rays are coming from her.



Here are some more close-ups of my layout:
