Hello Lovely Layout

I named this layout "Hello Lovely" but really it should be "Can't Wait To Get This Done Because It Is Driving Me Crazy". I just couldn't get things to work the way I wanted and spent way too long on it but I think it finally turned out ok. I love this picture of my daughter and the colours in it. She never wears jeans so I had to get proof when she did this one time.

I used the sketch from My Creative Sketches. I struggled to find matching paper to fill that large strip on the right since I was using a 6 x 6 pad. It's busier than I like but sometimes it's good to work outside the comfort zone. At least that is what I'm telling myself. Ha!

I also used this picture from Creative Embellishments as inspiration. I chose to use the strips of paper to match the rainbow. I used a butterfly and hearts and tried to add some movement to the layout with the butterfly trail and loopy frame. I used "lovely" chipboard and the butterfly chipboard from Creative Embellishments. I chose the butterfly to match my daughter's butterfly shirt and the inspiration picture. The twist this month is to use a song title for the layout. I chose the beautiful song, "Hello Lovely" by The Likes Of Us.
