Where's Rhi-Rhi? Layout

So this layout I was so excited to make... but had a helluva time at first. I put Rhiannon in Phoenix's high chair for the first time a couple weeks ago to try to keep her occupied so I could maybe get some work done. But then I looked at her... she's just so small in that big high chair! She kinda disappeared! So, instead of doing my work, I pulled out the camera and started snapping. She's just so tiny! I love this high chair because of all the bright colors. So of course, when I made a page, I knew it needed to be just as bright. But, as luck would have it, NONE of the paper in my ENTIRE store was what I needed. I went through my paper at home... still nothing. The greens were always just a little off... and of course, that just won't do!!! I was vending at a crop this past Sunday, as was another store. I was passing by their stuff (it's always fun to see what other vendors have!) and saw the green leaves paper. I freaked! I just so happened to have printed the pics in case I found something at their "store." Well, it was EXACTLY what I was looking for! And the green was purrrrfect! So, I ran back to my table and practically threw the page together! When you find just what you've been looking for, things usually fall right into place. I made the layout in like 10 minutes, barring the title of course. No need for fancy-smanshy embellishments here! It came out just how I had envisioned. I love it. It's bright, cheery, it mimics the leaves on the high chair perfectly, and Rhiannon is just friggin' adorable!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
