Our Summer Sweetheart

This is my 2nd post today. Be sure to check out the first.

I made this layout in response to a challenge from Pagemaps. I know you will be surprised (NOT!) that I chose to feature my little granddaughter, Daci. The theme was summer and this is what I came up with. Her cute skirt, which was made for her by her other grandma (talented seamstress and quilter) was my color inspiration. Because of the many patterns and colors in her little skirt, I chose paper from several different paper packs to achieve the look I wanted. Have you ever thought to do this? Just because something comes in a kit or package doesn't mean it can only be used with those things. Get creative! Try combining colors and patterns from several kits and you might be surprised what you come up with!

By the way, don't ya just LOVE that little tongue. More times than not it pokes out when she is especially happy.
