Candy Shoppe Designs First Challenge of April is the U Crack Me Up Challenge, use those embarrassing/funny photos you wouldn't dare scrap before now on your creations. This month they are being sponsored by The Scarlet Lime with a chance to win this awesome blog candy!Be sure to visit their blog to join in on the fun challenge! You can also find them in my link section under Challenge, Sketch, and Inspiration Sites
I used Sketch 181 from Pencil Lines this weeks guest designer, Elizabeth Kartchner to get my creative juices flowing and the chance to win a RAK full of American Craft goodies was just icing on the cake!
My color scheme was inspired by Scrap The Art Challenge #4 inspiration from Larry Rivers Rainbow Rembrandt, 1977. I was a little intimidated by the challenge at first and set the picture as a desktop item to try and inspire me. When I sat down to start my layout, no papers were right! It was then I came across the perfect set that I realized I was staring at Rainbow Rembrandt in my pages! Their blog candy is supplied by KimPrints
I also incorporated Challenge Masters , April Technique Challengeto create flowers using a faux technique. I made this flower by, stamping, glimmer misting, scrunching and layering!.
Without further ado... here is my layout!
Cry Cry Baby
This is my oldest son Noah when he was around 6 months old. He loved loved loved my brother Darrin from day one, so this picture is just hilarious to me. My brother obviously has a great sense of humor and joined in on the crying... Noah looks so pitiful here but I just can't seem not to laugh!
