We are family

Hi everyone. I thought I'd show you my layout today that I created for the Creative Embellishments August Challenge, and Lindy Stamp Gang's August Colour Challenge. They really went hand in hand when I sat down to create. Everyone knows I love my Lindys so I pulled out the Hydrangea Blue, Sweet Violet Purple Teal and Whale Watch Blue to create my background and colour the frame and chipboard from Creative Embellishments. The inspiration I used from their challenge was the circle theme, dots and music. So I used bubble wrap to create the background and used flair and gems to really pull the theme together.

Here's the inspiration photo:

And here's the Lindy Stamp Gang Challenge photo:

My husband said he liked this layout so much, he wants me to frame it. I love it when he says that. You can click on the photos to see more detail.

I used lots of Prima flowers and embellishments that I had in my stash, which are always fun to use.
And now for some fun closeups.

You should play along too! It's so much fun to find inspiration that pushes me to use my stash instead of just using kits. I'd love to hear what you think of this layout. Feel free to leave me comments. 

Have a great Sunday!
