Each month we have a new guest designer who's work is featured at Websters Pages Ning site. This month our Guest Desiger is the fabulouly talented Carol Monson. The design team is asked to create a page that is inspired by one of the guest designers layouts. I used Carol's page called '10 in 2012' as an inspiration for my above page. I love the way Carol uses multiple photo's to tell her story (and I know a few of you have asked to do some multi-photo layouts...so here is!! :) You can see Carols layouts at this link as well as the rest of the WP design teams guest inspired pages! Websters Guest Designer. I called my layout 'Drama Queen' as a nod to my youngest daughter's penchant for 'hamming' things up. I had asked her to sit on the porch rail in front of her bean plant that accidently got planted in front of the house (before we cut it down...that thing is HUGE!) ....she proceeded to give me all sorts of dramatic poses before she would let me just take a 'normal' photo :)
I just got a notice on Friday that my Websters Pages design team package is on it's way!! Yippee! I can't wait! In the mean time I used a variety of the papers I still had on hand from making pages for the CHA to make the above layout. I used a combination of 'Everyday Poetry', 'Palm Beach', 'Country Estate' and 'Yacht Club' collections to make up this page.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Pinterest??!! I made the flowers in the layout above using a little tutorial I found on Pinterest using pink crepe paper streamers, here is the link Crepe Paper blooms. (I have also been trying out some GREAT recipes from Pinterest over the weekend...we threw an 54th anniversary party for my parents, one of the things I made was the Chinese Cabbage salad and everyone loved it! You can follow me on Pinterest by clicking this link PINTEREST) ....okay back to my layout LOL!...I also got my design team package for Dusty Attic a few days ago and WOWEE! they have some fabulous new designs (I'll share more on that in an upcoming post....meanwhile, I used one of their small frame designs in the top right corner of my layout). Here are some close-up pic's of my page and it's embellishments...
I also recently got this new Martha Stewart punch that does this bracket design...just loving it! If you have any questions on products or techniques used on my pages please feel free to ask! In the meantime, thank you so much for all your kind comments! xx
