Layout for the Sunshine Studios Challenge

Like everyone else I was having fun on the hunt for clues in Scrap Orchard and the Sunshine Studio Scraps today and picking up that gorgeous kit. In addition to the amazing freebee (how generous are those ladies) I grabbed two of Ellie Lash’s kits, and one of Lliellas. I had seen these two kits on Ellie’s blog, whilst admiring a gorgeous layout of her boys.
I’ve had a set of photos I took of my daughter at 3 months old (yes that is well over 3.5 years ago LOL), that I have been waiting to scrap. You know that photo that is so “perfect” that you are almost intimidated to scrap it, or you get a form of paralysis because it becomes too important. Well this photo was like that. What made it worse was there is a strong yellow in the background of the photo that needed the right papers and elements to go with it. As soon as I saw Ellie’s Star Gazing kit, the light bulb went on and I thought of this photo. I also grabbed her Scatter Sunshine kit, which is just fantastic, to scrap some other piccies I have been stumped by. I decided to make the layout with the word art for their challenge this week because it just fitted the photo perfectly. Aaahh serendipity LOL, sometimes you just have to be patient LOL (3.5 years patient !). Anyway, here is the layout I came up with (I know very boring to lots, but I am a conservative scrapper). Now I just have to figure out how to upload it to the gallery ROTFL.
Best wishes,
Erika

Gorgeous! I love that you took 3 years to scrap that perfect photo. I have one from about 3 years ago that I'm afraid to scrap too. I will get to it, I promise, eventually, yep right at the top of my list....lol. Great work scrapping it. Thanks for all the great goodies. Patty

I just found a website that will let you download a photo and then generates a color palette for you. I'm not good at picking the perfect set of colors so I love this tool! I know there's more than one site that does this. Just search color palette generator and you'll find a few.

this lo is simply lovely! i adore all the sprinkled stars and the blues really bring out her eyes. it must be a great color choice because i didn't even notice the bright yellow until you mentioned it, lol! it is said that good things come to those who wait and your wait has paid off!
