2SF Online Crop - Sharon's Challenge

Sharon's challenge over at the 2SF forum was to use blue. Not just blue... specific requirements:

at least 2 different shades of blue cardstock
at least 2 different blue patterned papers
and at least 2 different blue embellishments!

I knew this one would be fairly easy as I have tons of blue everything (although not a lot of blue embellies) and I love blue... To challenge myself I decided I wanted to make it somewhat of a monochromatic page as well...

I went immediately to the Hawaii album and selected a few topics. In the end, the blue Jolee's helicopter embellie sealed the deal.

I've really decided "recipe" challenges like this one and those over at HMITM are my favs :)

So this is what I came up with:

So for two patterened papers I used a "stripe" and a "spot". The spot is DCWV The Glitter Stack. The stripe is out of a holiday stack I have.

For two cardstocks - I used 6. 3 for the large circles, 2 for the flowers to accentuate the title letters on the title, and one for the background (although its debatable if that is a solid or a pattern?)

Finally, my two blue embellies are the helicopter and this glittery button like thing with a map of Hawaii on it.... I might see if I can cut a mini volcano and glue it on the map where the volcano is...

All the embellies are Jolee's and I'm not sure about the sticker letters.

Also - fun fact - this is my first circle based layout I've done without using a sketch. Yay me!

Thanks for looking and please comment and follow!

  1. Hey,

    Cute layout! I love the volcano. You're right about the dot. It does look kind of weird. Are there really no clear dots on the market at all?
