Jillibean Soup Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Friday, July 5, 2013


Whether you are here as part of the blog hop or just stopping by... Welcome! Today I'm playing along with the Design Team to showcase the latest Jillibean Soup release -  'Happy Camper' and I can vouch for the super cuteness of this new collection.

DESIGNED FOR | Jillibean Soup
PROJECT | ducky ducky ducky Layout


WHERE THE IDEA CAME FROM | I have always loved this photo of my two oldest kiddos and used to have it as my blog header. I have never scrapped it before but as soon as I saw the pink flamingos in the Happy Camper collection it reminded me of this photo and so it was time. I really focused on the colours in the photo and added the starburst using vellum as I didn't want it to detract from the overall layout. Simply put... I wanted it there, but only just.


Happy Camper boasts so many gorgeous patterns and colours and I can never go past woodgrain and graph paper.


Still loving sequins at the moment so had to add a little scattering here and there.


I used another of my new Heidi Swapp templates to create the starburst which I cut out from vellum and added a slight feathered look to the edges seeing as my layout was all about birds.

  11. Love the vellum "feathers". They make good sun rays. The colors in the layout go together so well and the flamingos do complement the ducks in the picture. I really like this layout. I could sit and look at it some time. There are so many different things to see as you continue to look at the layout.
