Two More for C'est Magnifique

Good morning (I think?) to you all :). It's Monday morning here. Did NOT sleep well last night and up early this morning...and just super tired. Really don't like starting out my Monday like this as this is historically the most difficult day of the week for me (and the kids)- it's like we have a weekend hangover together- and Dad isn't around to help us out, lol...

But I need to show you a couple more projects using the February Kit "Royal Tea Party" from C'est Magnifique! So let's go~!

"After Party"
My daughter's first birthday was quite busy, filled with family, and it caused her to be a bit overwhelmed. Though I took nearly 400 pictures during the day, I don't think I got even a single one of her smiling :(. However, AFTER the party (and a nap!) she was much happier. I spent some time with her outside, just her and I, and got a bunch of really great shots. She was so adorable in her little birthday outfit- and when I first started to work with this kit, I just knew that it would coordinate perfectly with it! I pulled apart one of the wire hearts and used a couple of the sprays in my cluster. Then I took the remaining piece and bent them into "leaves", also sticking them in with my cluster. It's so much fun to find different ways to use a product!



 From the Flower Add-On:
Prima: Amore Violet
Prima: Coventry: Serene
Prima: Botanical: Marri
Prima: Larkspur: Sherwood Rose
Manor House: Lotus: Imperial

From the Embellishment Add-On:
Leaky Shed: Keyholes
American Crafts: Thickers: Rainboots
Pink Paislee: Artisan Wings

Next, I have for you probably the most "clean and simple" layout I've ever made. But this photo that my sister Kelly took of her daughter was so incredibly gorgeous, I just didn't want to take away from it- and so I turned it into a "quote piece" instead...

"Autumnal Face"
I love it when I am insired by color. This photo is of my niece on an autumn day and the colors are amazing, as well as the subject herself! But I was at first uncertain of how I would match the kit to the photo. However, once I got started, I found that every color in the amazing picture is available in the kit- one way or another. I was excited to discover that the beautiful Blue Fern Studios packaging was perfect for the fussy cut bit to the left of my photos, and it really helped draw out some of the rich fall colors. I actually had a hard time ADDING more flowers, which is pretty much unheard of for me! But it actually looked better left a little more simple, and the beautiful quote just tied the whole thing together :).

Prima: Coventry: Serene

This gorgeous kit has just sold out- but there are still some of the paper packs available, a flower add-on, and some individual items available in the store HERE! These kits generally tend to sell out QUICK, so if you'd like to make sure you  never miss out on another one again, become a subscriber! You can learn how HERE :).

I hope your Monday treats you well~ have a great week and we'll see you again here soon :).

Erin, I love this LO. Elegantly simple is what I would call it. Kelly's little girl is so cute with that red hair and like you said it's a beautiful picture with all that wonderful color.

Små piger er en velsignelse, så søde, uskyldige og indtagende, og når du så behandler billederne bliver det kunst. knus morkaren.

Erin these are so pretty and I see the little beads throughout, I'm going to give it a try today on a chippie frame I'm working on, hope you don't mind me grabbing the inspiration from you.
