A Pebbles Inc. Fresh Goods Layout

Today I have a new layout that I just added the finishing touches on using papers by Pebbles's new "Fresh Goods" collection. As soon as I saw a sneak peek of these papers I knew I had to get my hands on them. These colors just scream my name and it's so rare to find true blue colored papers these days to match the blues in my photos so I had to stock up big time!

I had these three little photos of my daughter Sydney from our trip to Tokyo Disneyland a couple years ago and I remembered this design by Tracie based on Sketch #112 over at that I was head-over-heals in love with here. Anyway, I decided rather than re-invent the wheel I would basically scraplift her idea with a couple small tweaks. :)

Here's my take:

I used my chalk inks to alter the chipboard color for the branch and bird's body and then freehand cut a piece of matching blue cardstock for his wing and added some stitching to tie into the two other hearts (my small attempt to work in threes and create sort of a visual triangle)...

I cut the scalloped background shape from Bazzil cardstock with my Silhouette. This was my first time using my new Silhouette Cameo in all of it's wide format 12x12 glory and I have to say it was WONDERFUL!!! So worth the small price to upgrade. For those of you on the fence I sold mine on Ebay for a fair price and then bought the Cameo at Oh My Crafts found here using a 20% off + free shipping coupon code I found on google (It doesn't look like they have one active right now, but they are always coming up with new specials so sign up for their mailing list and I'm sure they will have one in the coming weeks with Thanksgiving sales). It also looks like they are on backorder until December, but it is so worth the wait and would make the perfect Christmas present to yourself! ;)
