Beautiful Day

Beautiful Day

It was indeed a beautiful.  This is one of my daughter's senior portraits.  The photographer said he would get us into this ritz'y' neighborhood to photograph Katie.  I loved the bridge at the entrance and the club house.  Unfortunately, he did not have access and we were chased off the property!  Still got the shots.  So, I think it was a successful day.

I had loads of fun creating this layout with the guide lines from the below challenges in mind.

I love to start with a fabulous sketch idea which was provided by Sketchabilities.

Next, I need a color scheme .  Thanks Words and Paintery for the colors and the adventure to this picture was awesome!

Finally, background ideas.  Stamps are always a fine way to add interest.  Thanks Berry 71 bleu.  I use at least three different stamp!

I used pop dots to lift leaves or flowers to create depth and interest.  Plenty

 Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have sen something that has inspired you!
