"Family" (Manor House Creations)

**For my November giveaway, please go HERE**

Good morning to you :). It's early here and I'm hoping to get this post completed before the little monsters get up ;)~!

Today I'm here to show you a layout that I created for Manor House Creations, featuring papers from The Scrap Cake. This time I've used the "Summer City" collection, though I did not do a "summer" page...

"Family"

This photo is of my nephew Bear (on the left, and yes that is his real name haha!) and my oldest Wyatt. These two are like fire and gasoline...for real. Oftentimes, that drives me absolutely nuts. It's like the two of them get together and this combustible reaction just happens and it's pure craziness, drama, and high performance action the entire time~! And this photo shows just one of the ways they are when they are paired up~!


I've combined a mixture of white, blue, and yellow as my color palette for this project. I felt it suited the beautiful Summer City paper and helped convey the energy in my photos.



As you can see, the Spring Collection is just bursting with color~!  I also love to add little things to add interest to my flower clusters, like the seam binding bows, tulle picks, etc...


I've used a combination of gesso, modeling paste, cardboard, paper, and mist to create the texture you see here.

Thanks so much for stopping in today~! I think I hear my 2-year old hollering for me so I'd better run! Have a great day~!!

Sikke dog et dejligt LO, jeg er ret vild med dit farvevalg, og man kan sagtens se det er et par små "banditter" (jeg har haft tre af slagsen) dine blomster er vidunderlige. knus morkaren.

another stunner Erin ... and what a simply gorgeous colour combination together. Not something that I would have steered towards. Yellow is definitely not a go to colour for me ... but you've done absolute wonders with it. Very 'noice'!!!!
