The little T Rex embellishment from Crate Paper Boys Rule was the start of this whole layout - it was so cute and the perfect colour.

I was inspired by the high lights and low lights of the girls hair and the weaved trim/ fabric - slightly different variations of the same colour. I decided to punch a whole bunch of flowers in slightly different orange patterned papers, to get the same look. I layered two different sizes of the flowers, using orange patterned paper as well as white paper and plain vellum. I attached a strip of orange patterned paper across the top and bottom of the layout, and did some orange water colour behind the photo (hence the warped paper - it will flatten in my album!)

From the moodboard, I was inspired with red haired lady, hence the photo and the swirls on the lace, which is why I used the chipboard frame

I was inspired by the different textures in the moodboard so I used several stencils and modeling paste to create a variety of them. I also used typed words. This is my daughter with her loveing teddy bear. The picture was taken at a different year, but she still has the habit of keeping him beside her♡

The mood board made me think retro so I dug into an old stash of basic grey papers for this one. The braided ribbon made me think stitching or ribbon so I added a lot of sewing too.

I was totally inspired by this vibrant color and automatically visualise the monarch butterfly and the pumpkin. I used letters for my background like the typewriter.
