Little Fish

I was SUPER excited to see this weeks colors over at Colour Q.  I knew exactly what photo I wanted to scrap....because it's been sitting on my desk just waiting for the right inspiration.  Take a look at the color palette.

Here's my layout:

I have to give my husband a big KUDOS for helping me, otherwise this page would probably be laying in my garbage.  Not only did he help me in laying out the sunburst (as a builder, he's good with the measuring and planning), but also helped me save my sewing when I thought I had it totally messed up!  He keeps reminding me that one's hobby is supposed to relax you...

So a bit about the page.  The DSP is from the color family packs.  The fish are made from the oval, 5 petal flower, and small heart punches.  I used a couple of scraps punched with the scallop edge punch to make the scales. I sponged on Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight ink in alternating amounts.  "LITTLE" is from the Billboard Decorative Strip.  "fish" is retired chipboard letters colored using Craft Melon Mambo ink.  I journaled with my white gel pen along the sun, as I wanted to say something without it sticking out.

I'm really glad that I hadn't scrapped this photo as I love the color combo (THANK YOU  Colour Q!) and this page...just not in a hurry to go sew another.... (I scrap a book for each girl.)
