Crate Paper - August Creative Challenge

Hi There!

This month I decided to take part in a fun challenge on the Crate Paper Blog which is all about Navy Blue and sequins.  I was recently given these awesome photos by good friend  taken of her sweet daughter Sierra.
They come to visit with us often and were just here to stay with us a a couple of weeks ago.  Whenever we get together we always do fun photo shoots of the kids.  Suzy recently took these photos at a train station near her house and when I saw them I knew right away I had to use them on a project (or two).

Anyways, on to my layout.  Since the challenge was all about Navy blue and sequins I thought these photos of Sierra were perfect since she was already wearing a Navy blue dress.  I built my layout around that using a mix of Crate Paper collections and embellishments. So fun!

Lovely Lady Layout

This layout came together quickly once I decided to stitch a vellum pocket with lots of sequins inside.

I love this Ephemera die-cut collection pack from the DIY shop collection.  I loved all the vintage looking pieces that went along with my layout.  Those fun doilies are a punch from Martha Stewart that I bought recently and they are quickly becoming a fun staple of mine to use on all my projects.  Anyways, that's my layout that I put together for the challenge, I love the way it turned out and I hope that Crate will like it too :)
