Hugs, Kisses & Sunshine Layout

This week I am on Spring Break from work and my plan is to get a little caught up on some scrapbooking. I have not been doing very many layouts lately because I keep getting sidetracked with other fun and creative projects so it was nice to pull out some pictures and create a simple layout.

I recently found this stack of paper at Target from Wausau Paper. The stack is called the Creative Collection and has 30 colors in it. The cool part is that it has some textured papers called Crinkles in several colors and I was excited about using them on my projects to see more texture in my work. I used the white sheets for this layout (you can see it in the close up photos, below, better).

The Challenge over at the Circle Blog this week was to make something that celebrates the everyday. These photos are from last spring when we all went out to breakfast one morning. I love the dress my daughter is wearing and snapped several photos of her hanging out with her grandparents and uncle. I felt it was a great "just because" moment.
The "hugs and kisses" cut is from Lyrical Letters, as is the lettering for "sunshine". The sun cut is from Hello Kitty Greetings, but I removed the smile form the center using the hide contour button on my Gypsy. I wanted a little more texture so I embossed my sunshine and used some glue dots to put it on the page. I added two rows of ribbon and that means I can use the layout for the So Saturday Challenge at Card Creations and More by C. This week the challenge is to use patterned ribbon. I am also using this for Scrapbookaholic by Abby and Fantabulous Cricut #53 and the spring themed challenges posted this week. Enjoy all!
