Soup of the Day June 21, 2017

As I opened the gallery this morning, I was immediately drawn to two layouts. One by Barb and another by Cassy.

I chose this one by Barb because I loved how the colors in the photos and embellishments popped off the white background.

And I also chose this one by Cassy for the same reason.  Instead of a white background, Cassy used a black background to make her choice of pattern papers and embellishments pop.

Congrats ladies on Soup of the Day!!!

The day you were born

I used the April 1st rewind sketch from Rochelle for this page about my son and his 3rd child (my 3rd grandchild) and I used the fun colors of spring from the inspiration photo by Brenda.
Fun sketch.  Page went together fast.

This layout just jumped right out at me this morning. I love how Wanda pulled the stripe out in the dress with that strip of black and white striped pattern paper. The journal block brings your eye right to it to read what the page is all about. The word "persist" at the bottom tells it all. Many of us feel we have to persist with many experiences in our life. Way to go Wanda. Great page!
