Here is this week's color challenge: Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. It is a double page layout using photos of my nephew when he was first born along with my niece. As soon I saw all these pics, I knew the title I was going to put for it. The line from Casablanca, The beginning of a beautiful friendship. As you can see there are some colors not part of the challenge. After I laid out the page, I needed something to embellish it and yet I couldn't find anything that appealed to me in my stamp collection. I kept thinking I wanted a bear for the page. Well I dug into my sticker stash I bought at an EK Success sale a long time ago and found their Pooh bear stickers. How appropriate Pooh and Piglet. So other than the stickers the rest of the colors stick to the challenge. I diecut the title with my Naturally Serif Alphabet. I applied the letters to the page with my two way glue pen. Next came the designer paper bordered on the top and bottom of the photos. The Baja Breeze comes from the Pattern Pack and the Certainly Celery comes from a retired Prints paper pack. The bottom border I made a scallop border with my slit punch. The top of the border, I adhered a strip of wide grosgrain ribbon and added a tailored bow. The finishing touches were strips of chocolate chip on the sides of the pages and three courdory buttons.
