Sweet Happy Moments | Charms Creations

Hi friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout that I created for the Charms Creations Creative Team!

I documented some cute photos of Eleanor on this layout. She loves the little rides that are scattered around our local shopping centre, (which I'm positive are (in)conveniently located so that you can't avoid them when you're shopping with a toddler!). Whenever she gets to have a ride on one, she's over the moon, and I took these photos on one such occasion.

I used the Maggie Holmes Carousel collection on this layout, as well as some Vicki Boutin mixed media products.

I also used the February 1st sketch from Stuck?! Sketches as inspiration for my page. Here's a look at the sketch...

I started my layout off by creating a mixed media background using the Vicki Boutin art crayons. I added water to them so that I could use them like watercolors, and I painted it onto the background using a paint brush. I also stamped some circles in a darker yellow onto the background to give it some more interest.

Then I used the sketch as a guide to add my photos, title, and embellishments to the layout.

Here are a couple of closeups...

I added a Charms Creations hot pink hessian arrow to the cluster to the right of the photos. You can find all the Charms Creations arrows in the shop here. I also layered a D-lish Scraps flair button on top of the arrow.

All of the other embellishments on the page are from the Carousel collection. I used the die-cut ephemera, the cardstock stickers, and the puffy stickers. I particularly love the pretty florals in this collection!

Thanks so much for joining me today! Make sure you go check out all of the beautiful embellishments in the Charms Creations shop, and head on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog to play along with their January 1st challenge.
