Cheater Cheater

This week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge....and I cheated!

....I switched the Baja Breeze for Pool Party.  I'm really trying...though I have WAY too much, to use up some DSP, especially since I've seen the paper coming out in the Holiday Catalog.  Here's the page I created:

See the top corner DSP, it's from a retired pack and worked perfect, except that it was Pool Party. 

Another block layout, but they are my favorite and I have to be me!  This is my oldest daughter in piggy heaven after she finally got to have a kitten...much to her dad's dislike. 

Here's a few more pictures, again lots of retired stuff, but I like what I like!

I used words to describe the occasion from the Fabulous Phrases set.  I tried to spread them out so it didn't read like a sentence.  A few hearts by kitty hide a spot on the towel that looked gross.

Spritzer came out to play since I didn't like the all white background.  I bit the bullet and ordered new letter dies, so they will make their debut soon.

Now make sure you head over and see what the rest of the team created.  We'd love for you to play along, I think color challenges are the easiest....even though I cheated! :)


  1. That smiling Ollie just melts my heart! Sweet layout. And you know, I'm somewhat color blind and have to whip out the Color Coach all the time to verify colors, so your combo looks 'jes fine to me! Great job! :)erika

  2. That looks just like our kitty, Frito! Cute and fast page... my favorite kind.

  3. Ohhhh! Cheater!!!! LOL! I don't think I would have noticed if you didn't point it out...it works so well:-) And I know what you mean...I have way too many left overs! And cute kitty and kiddo!

  4. Great layout! Your fabulous pictures make this layout so special. I can see your daughter's happiness and also on the kitty's face. Priceless!! Your daughter and kitty are so photogenic.
